Rob Celebrates his 20 Year Anniversary
As we moved into April, not only did we see every season occur here in the UK, but we also celebrated another team member’s anniversary. This time, it was the turn of Rob Whiting, our Production Manager.
Rob first started with applied acoustics in 2001 as a Test Engineer, joining Adam and James as employee number 11 in the business. Rob had some experience of offshore life as a trainee survey engineer but quickly had to adapt his skills to become an applied manufacturing engineer, occasionally stopping on his journey for a beer or two.
When we caught up with Rob, this is what he said about working with us:
“applied acoustics is a great family business that has given me both employment and opportunity for which I am grateful. It has been great working to help serve our customers and expand the business via its technology, processes, and premises over the years. As part of my role, I have introduced into production countless new products, attended many trade events, and had the opportunity to travel and advance my education.
“When you look back at what we have done 20 years doesn’t seem long enough! I would like to thank Adam and all the team at aae technologies for many great years as it’s great collaboration that makes it all work and I look forward to many more years ahead.“
We couldn’t miss the opportunity to speak to Adam about working with Rob over the course of 20 years;
“The business has changed somewhat since Rob started with us. Initially, as an Electronic Test Engineer, he was always good at getting things finished and ready to ‘get out of the door’, understanding the importance of our customer’s needs. More latterly as part of the management team he gives a clear insight as to what he needs from engineers in order to build products on time, ensuring delivery times are met and stock levels are maintained.“
Thank you for your continued support and hard work Rob, here’s to many more years.
