The T650 was shipped from Datum’s Manchester office in the UK, at the beginning of March, and arrived on US soil in May 2019.

Speaking about the expansion into the US market, Rory O’Rourke, VP for Sales at Datum, said

“The T650 is now an established and leading pile testing system in the UK. Our strategy was always to penetrate the global market, once UK market had been established. T650’s and T250’s have already been sold to companies in China and Europe, the US market was the next planned step. We are delighted our products have been so well received in the USA, a recent series of meetings held with potential buyers in the US delivered excellent results and we are confident that this sale will be the first of many into the US.”
