David Brown Santasalo (DBS) was delighted to recently welcome valued customer, Breedon Cement’s new intake of apprentices, reliability engineers and their mentors to their Park Works, Huddersfield, UK facility for a day of training delivered by DBS’ Development Director, Mike Field.
Field has been with the business for over 45 years, having joined the Research & Development Department at the UK facility in 1974, and has enjoyed a varied and successful career that has taken him to roles in China and South Africa. Field has taken his extensive knowledge built through this illustrious career and developed a wide range of training courses to pass that knowledge on to the next generation of engineers, delivered through DBS' proprietary Gear Academy training program.
Field has now turned his attention to sharing that knowledge with valued customers. Paul Bintcliffe, sales manager – service & repair invited John Mulryan, maintenance manager and his team of apprentices from Breedon Cement to join DBS for a tailored session on Gear Maintenance. The aim of the day was to provide the apprentices with an understanding of gears and how the right approach to maintenance can extend the lifetime of a gear unit.
“We were delighted to have the opportunity to welcome this extremely valued customer to our offices in Huddersfield. We were pleased to be able to deliver added value to Breedon Cement who have been a customer of David Brown Santasalo for over 60 years,” Bintcliffe said.
“I was really impressed with the apprentices who joined us from Breedon Cement. During the day they had the opportunity to ask questions and have some in depth conversations about the subject matter,” said Field.
