After working 30 years in the single-ply industry both as a fitter and a contracts manager, I came to a position in my career in which I needed a new challenge. Having worked with the IKO Polymeric team as a contractor, I was familiar with the company and the products. I was very impressed from the outside looking in and could see the company doing nothing but grow as it had in previous years. When the opportunity to join as a Field Engineer became available it didn’t take much persuasion for me to accept the position. Everyone at IKO is friendly and helpful with employees from the shop floor to Senior Management who are more than happy to help if required with the feel of a family business. The company values its employees and offer training and support to all individuals to progress with skills that enable them to be more efficient and comfortable with their job. After joining IKO Polymeric in June 2013 I have enjoyed working for the company and with my colleagues and have seen the company grow an extraordinary amount in such a short time. With the increase in employees to accommodate this, I was offered and accepted the position of Senior Field Engineer and have embraced the roll and I’m enjoying the new challenges that come with it. I regard myself lucky to enjoy the job I do with a company like IKO and believe we are the best at what we do in the industry with the best products.
