Project Draughtsman Retires
In March 2020, at the age of 67, long service employee Peter Ingham retired as project draughtsman in our design office.
Peter joined the company in 1974 as the only member of our drawing office at the time, when drawings were done by pen and ink and customer copies were made laboriously on a diazo wet copying machine. This was a time of relatively simple refractory assembly drawings, before the introduction of our own forehearth and distributor designs and the establishment of our engineering division. During his 46 years with the company Peter was a major influence on many of the developments that took place during that period, including conversion from pen and ink to computer driven drawing production, development of our own System 500 forehearth and its associated engineering equipment and of course our highly successful Cord Dispersal Stirrer system.
His life long interests have included karate and the keeping of rescue dogs, specifically Salukis. We wish him well in his retirement and hope that he can continue to enjoy his hobbies for many years to come.
