On The Spot With Andrew Haigh, Our Managing Director
I spotted an advert for a local food machinery business advertising for an engineer and to my delight I was hired. This was where my skills came into their own. I learnt all the ins and outs of the intricate components of the machinery and spent many evenings and weekends honing my craft. Eventually the business partners split up and I continued to work with the sales representative as his engineer. Incidentally, he is still one of my close friends. We worked together for many years until eventually going our separate ways.
With my drive, ambition and knowledge, I began selling small machinery locally to begin with, gradually building up a respectable reputation. I think because I come from an engineering background and can talk to customers about how a machine works as well as make alterations specific to their individual products, this has stood me in good stead.
I have an amazing team of people around me that make my visions real. It is thanks to them that we are successful at what we do.
