When the new Robot section was installed his role changed to working on several CNC machines – turning, milling and drilling, continuing to work on the Robot section until 2016 then left the shop floor to work in P.E.D (Production Engineering Department)
He now creates CNC programmes, 3D models and engineering drawings in addition to problem solving and working on tooling improvements.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER – Tom Fieldsend

On November 1st Tom Fieldsend took on the
role of Product Development Engineer.

Just over three years ago Steve Harper stepped up to become the Head of Engineering and took
along with him the role of Product Manager.

During this time Steve has done both roles tirelessly and to good effect but it has always been recognised that the company needed to develop a greater field test/product development presence.

Tom will increasingly spend more time on visits with Steve,
reviewing and developing our own products in the work environment whilst continuing to help their
development here in the factory.

In time it is hoped that Tom will then be able to undertake visits with the Sales people and on his
own giving us greater coverage of our markets around the World.
