As lockdown measures ease and businesses begin to re-emerge from COVID restrictions, Bourne, Lincolnshire-based CNC Repair is bucking the trend having found that many of its customers have experienced a flying start to the first quarter of 2021. To meet this demand, the company has expanded its team with the appointment of two new engineers.

The engineering company has been busy throughout the pandemic providing CNC machine servicing and repairs to its leading OEM customers, so the appointments of Phil Peachey and Ross Dolby are timely – particularly with its clients in the automotive supply chain.

The new recruits both bring extensive knowledge of machine tool brands used in the automotive industry such as Heller, Comau, MAG Boehringer, Erwin Junker, Okuma and Makino as well as automation solutions from Fanuc.

Phil Peachey (34) and Ross Dolby (33) have over 30 years’ experience between them having both begun their working lives as apprentices at Perkins Engines in Peterborough.

Mr Peachey commented: “I’ve worked around the world to help build and then install crankshaft manufacturing machines in the UK as well as working on robotics and various control systems, so my experience should stand me in good stead in my new role.

“I’m keen to help our customers minimise machine downtime; while also learning about new machines, enhancing my overall knowledge and becoming a valued member of team at CNC Repair.”

Mr Dolby concurred: “I’m looking forward to working with the close-knit team at CNC Repair and proving myself as a strong and valuable member. This role will allow me to reach the levels I know I’m capable of whilst testing my skills on new machines that I haven’t worked on previously, which is a challenge I’m thoroughly looking forward to.”

Managing director, Anthony Spencer added: “We’re delighted to welcome Phil and Ross to the expanding team at CNC Repair. Even against the backdrop of a global pandemic, many of our customers have continued to be incredibly busy and so it was vitally important for us to support them in meeting their ambitious production targets.

“Facilitating this often includes working both weekends and nights to ensure critical maintenance work is carried out with minimal impact to production schedules. I know Phil and Ross’ combined knowledge and experience will strengthen the team significantly and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
