John Needham

Mechanical Design Engineer

With my background as a Mechanical Engineer, I enjoy the day to day life at Corgin as part of the Operations Team.  Every day brings a new set of challenges and a varied workload – no two days are the same!  There is a real team spirit at Corgin, which is definitely contagious and everyone works hard as part of the wider team – it is especially great to be part of a growing company and I love the buzz of a busy team.

My background isn’t in the technology that Corgin provides, but I’m hopeful that the skills and knowledge I have gained over the years working in other industries will be of benefit to me and to Corgin as my role evolves.  I particularly enjoy making improvements and as such, I am also heavily involved with the management of our QHSE matters - developing and improving our systems further to meet ISO requirements.  So juggling this with project work and working with sales on occasions is a great mix for me.

As a family man with 3 children, my time outside of work is also very busy but I try to find time to keep fit by running and cycling. At weekends I love spending time on the North Wales coast with the family getting out into the great outdoors and relaxing after a busy week.
