Congratulations to Jon Hopper as he has now seen all his hard work and ambition rewarded. Jon has been promoted to team leader of the bending area on the first shift. Jon has continued to develop showing a real commitment in training his team members to be more flexible with the technologies and new software within the department. With the arrival of the new Amada ATC HTC press-brake in August & as well as the new apprentices starting, his engineering knowledge, calm approach, and eye for detail will be called upon to support the newer members as they start their Sheet metal based training.

This new role for Jon will take immediate effect, as one of his first tasks will be to spearhead the stream lining of the processes across the bending section.

“I know he’ll make a great success in his new position” – Simon Walker Production manager.
