An engineer employed at a leading Truro-based telecoms and document solutions company has been awarded a prestigious technical accreditation.

Clive Ashby is only the fifth person in the UK to make the grade as a Gold Standard Sharp Technician for his work as a photocopier engineer at Datasharp’s head office at Truro Business Park.

“We are delighted that Clive has succeeded in reaching these demanding standards. In fact, the whole sales and engineering team at Datasharp is a hard one to beat,” said Clyde Edwards, area manager at Sharp Electronics UK Ltd.

Paul McIntosh, Datasharp’s CEO, added: “We’re so proud of Clive and all our copier team. Their dedication and commitment to providing our customers with the best service available shows in their effort to futureproof their skills, so that whichever way the market goes Datasharp continues to provide the best service.”
