Preparation is key to everything! You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear!

I have always been intrigued to find out how various operations work within the industry whether it’s production or the technical side 

 Organising work schedules for that day to the customer’s requirements, problem-solving, quotations, measuring, taking phone calls, meeting direct with customers, e-mails etc. Ensuring everything is running smoothly so the company runs as efficiently as it can.

To have the capability to educate and show others what powder coating is all about while still learning myself.

I hear I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand

Anyone can pick up a powder gun, you need to understand the fundamentals first to achieve the best results.

Hhhmmmm 4x4 Hummer.

I thrive on knowledge; you need to do your best to receive the greatest rewards.
