We would like to wish our Workshop Manager Barry a big Congratulations for serving 25 years here at EGS. He is in the elite club of three now, joining our MD Andy and Service Manager Steve. I’m sure there will be many more to come as we have several long standing members of staff that have been here 15 years plus!
As for Barry, he started his career with an apprenticeship from 1980 to 1984 at Paxman Diesels (now MAN B&W Diesel LTD) to train as a Maintenance Fitter. He left Paxman Diesels in 1989 when he joined EGS as an Engine Fitter.
In 1999, when EGS decided to concentrate solely on governing equipment, Barry, with great product, process and company knowledge, was appointed Workshop Manager. Due to the high level of skill required to plan and organise the large number of projects we take on, in addition to managing the technicians’ workload and ensuring each job is completed not only to a high quality standard, but also at the right pace in order to meet customer deadlines, Barry is a strong asset to the company. Furthermore, he has contributed significantly to the coordination of the stores and the implementation of our job and stock management software thereby considerably improving the efficiency with which jobs are completed.
“Barry is an exceptionally valued member of staff and has always been driven in his work, he is an asset to EGS”. Quote from Wayne Ward – Director.
