Also rejoining, Michael Ballinger is now Director of Sales (Europe). He also worked for Elta in a similar role for the best part of a decade, but left in 2016 and has been employed by Trico, Sogefi and Ring Automotive since.

In October 2018 a Management buy-out of Elta was orchestrated by MD Ian Hallam with business partner Vladimír Palacka. This led to a ‘rejuvenation of spirit that had been part of [the firm’s] original success’ according to Michael Ballinger.
