Fintan grew up in Manchester with his family who were heavily involved in construction and civil engineering. This led to a keen interest in machinery form a young age.

His dad worked with the Murphy group for 45 years and this presented the opportunity for Fintan to take up an apprenticeship in plant maintenance at their North West base.

Upon completing his apprenticeship, he moved to Australia where he began his career in the crushing and screening industry.

“Line of duty although nearly finished the sopranos and depending on the ending it could go top of the list!”

Values that drive Fintan

Fintan’s values revolve around being honest, remaining positive and persisting to do the right thing.

He also really benefits from being part of a close-knit team at Agg Pro. Knowing the team personally helps Fintan to create bonds that assist him to work better and more efficiently with those around him.

Role as a Sales Manager at Agg Pro

In Fintan’s role he takes care of sales and sales support for the Northwest area, which to his delight includes the Lake District and Snowdonia National Parks.

A typical week can involve face to face meetings with customers, site visits, general after care and support for customers to not only ensure they are getting the most of their equipment but also to ensure they are benefitting from the after sale support Agg Pro is renowned for.

Going over and above

Having received a call from a customer who needed to replace his screen mesh urgently to fulfil an order, Fintan did everything he could to ensure down time was kept to an absolute minimal. After pulling a few strings, the next morning the machine was up and running and the customer’s order was achieved.
