After two years away from XYZ Machine Tools, former applications manager, Mike Corbett is returning to the Burlescombe, Devon-based machine tool company where he will take on the role of production/technical manager from the 1st September.
The position became vacant following the decision by Mark Chappell, who has held the role since joining XYZ back in 2018, to return to live and work in Dubai in September. “Mark’s decision posed a few challenges as finding good people with the relevant experience, in a relatively short timescale is exceedingly challenging,” said Nigel Atherton, managing director XYZ Machine Tools. “Fortunately, the move coincided with a chat with Mike and his 22 years’ experience of our products and systems provided the perfect fit.”
In the role of production/technical manager, Mr Corbett will oversee the build of machines prior to delivery along with working with XYZ’s partners to ensure technical specifications are adhered and will work to further develop the quality and performance of the full range of XYZ machines.
“After 22 years working at XYZ in an applications capacity I felt I needed a new challenge, but like many over the past 18 months my priorities changed,” he explained. “Therefore, when the opportunity to return to XYZ, especially in this new position materialised, it was a simple and straightforward decision to make.”
