The advancement in machines has been huge, but IT systems and software programs like Solidworks have transformed our business. 

It's one giant challenge, not to be underestimated, it keeps biting you and you learn from your mistakes.

My Grandfather, he was a fantastic engineer and always taught me things from an early age, so when I was offered the opportunity I jumped at it.

A motorsport driver, any form I'm not fussy!

Not one day is the same which is great, I get involved with everything from sales, estimating, project management to the commercial side, including capital purchasing, finance, technical plant issues, property and the list goes on. I spend the majority of my time between the branches in Blaydon and Washington.

Because we offer so many services within the group the enquiries and the daily challenges vary day to day, making every day interesting and fast paced.

No sorry, I don't have one

Get the underpinning knowledge especially maths, then watch, listen and be hungry to learn as much as possible, but the great thing about engineering is that  you will never stop learning. 

Seeing the business evolve and change through the hard work by all involved.

I love the one I have but my dream car list includes Hennessey Venom GT, Audi RS6 Avant & Shelby GT500 Super Snake
