Matt Buttigieg - Komatsu Australia's National Warranty Manager
Matt has been with the company since 1990, when he started with then-NSW dealer ANI Komatsu as a first-year apprentice.
Since then, he has taken on increasingly senior service, technical, supervisory and management roles, culminating in his current position.After completing my apprenticeship, I spent a number of years in our Fairfield workshop operations, specialising in component rebuilds, before being promoted to workshop leading hand in 1999 and workshop supervisor in 2002.
In 2003, I took on the role of NSW Field Service Supervisor, then from 2005 to 2011 I was Service Manager at Fairfield. I've been in my current role since 2011.
Throughout my time at the company, Komatsu has remained focused on customers, using the latest tools, systems and technology to help achieve this. Our new OneView parts and service system, which is integrated with our KOMTRAX and other technology solutions, is now on track to become the industry's leading support tool.
On our people side, I've been happy and delighted with the way in which Komatsu has grown its Apprentice Development System.
Having come up through the company as an apprentice myself, I can see the absolute benefits we will get from the training and effort being invested in our young people today to ensure our future.
I have always enjoyed working at Komatsu Australia; it's an excellent place to work, with opportunities for promotion and job transfers available for all individuals who are up for the challenges.
