Texmate is pleased to announce our co-operation with Mr. Clive Hartland who is our new After-Sales Service Engineer, responsible for providing commissioning and after-sales technical service to our customers in both the textile and bakery/confectionery industries.

Clive grew up in Johannesburg and matriculated from John Orr Technical High School, excelling in Electronics.

He has worked in the computer industry doing customer support as well as electronic design for many years.

Previous work experience includes working for the following companies: SACO Systems, Cortect Systems Engineering, and Tecor Maintenance Services.

In the early 90s, he started his own company, Clive Hartland and Associates CC, and contracted to Perstel and FNB as an onsite system engineer on IBM. It was during this time that he also designed and developed an aircraft monitoring system which was used to monitor flight path information as well as turbine engine parameters.

He also contracted to Questek Marketing CC where he was in charge of the Barco Video Wall installation at Telkom Highveld Park in Centurion.

Subsequent to that he has travelled extensively under contract to Barco in Belgium installing and maintaining their numerous video walls internationally. He has thus travelled to 38 countries all over the World in the last 18 years.
