TES strengthens senior team as part of growth plan

A leading Lancashire digital radio communications company has announced plans for additional growth in its 30th year of trading, led by a new senior team.

TES Communication Solutions Group has appointed Steve Smith as its new managing director after serving as head of business development, replacing Keith Edwards who moves into a new role as Technical Director.

At the same time, Judith Eastham has been promoted to head of business development. Judith has 30 years of business development experience working with clients such as Siemens, Xylem and nmcn.

Prior to joining TES, Steve gained 30 years’ experience working for BT, leading bid teams for national contracts, and spent his three years at TES building new relationships with clients and winning new contracts.


Steve will lead a growth plan focussing on the Leyland-based company’s technical ability to deliver and support high tier integrated wireless communication systems to blue chip, enterprise, and government clients throughout the UK and overseas.

Steve said: “Our ongoing success lies in our ability to forge and maintain excellent relationships with our customers, working in collaboration with them throughout. We enjoy our work as problem solvers and working as part of our customer’s team. We pride ourselves on the highest levels of service and quality outcomes.

“TES Communication Solutions has been providing quality modern services for 30 years now, offering our clients access to the latest radio technology systems so they can communicate safely, even across large areas or challenging environments. This is where our future lies and I am enthused by the challenge ahead.”

Recently, TES has completed major projects for clients including the Clyde Naval Base in Scotland for secure encryption and fibre links for consistency of data and voice communications and enhanced voice and data capability for the current and future network for Transport For West Midlands, part of West Midlands Combined Authority.

Outgoing managing director Keith Edwards added: “It has been a pleasure to see the positive impact Steve has had across the business during a successful year-long transitional plan.

“Steve has embraced managed service and modular system offerings amongst a number of initiatives and I am delighted by the progress to date. I know that Steve ‘s personal qualities and proven business leadership skills will bring our team closer and make our business even more successful.”
