Employee Spotlight – Craig Simmonds
We are keen to introduce you to the next Precisa UK team member to be featured in our Employee Spotlight Series, Craig Simmonds.
Craig is a Field Service Engineer who has been with Precisa UK since 2017. He started working at the age of 14 when he got an after school job packing away a shoe stall, as well as working weekends for a store called Jade Shoes. After leaving school he ventured into the manufacturing sector of engineering.
When he first entered the industry he was a machine operator, working on rotary machines which manufactured turned parts for the car industry. He climbed the ladder and worked his way into inspection checking. He held this role for five years where his main duty was checking the dimensions to ensure that the components were manufactured to the correct specification.
From there Craig moved to a calibration company where he had to check all sorts of measuring equipment. The list of equipment he covered was wide, including: vernier calipers, micrometers, pressure gauges, screw plugs, screw ring gauge. When he was working on this varied range of measuring equipment, he also worked with the occasional sets of balances. This experience meant that when he started with Precisa UK he felt familiar with the job, although was happy to undergo the intensive training with our highly skilled service team.
