Steve, who lives with his wife and three sons, grew up on a farm in the Leicestershire town of Market Harborough.
Having spent many of his early days in and around tractors and ploughs, it was no surprise that Steve developed a keen interest in machinery.
Interests – Steve loves nothing more than attending machinery shows where he will take in some tractor pulling and cast his eye over the collection of vintage tractors.
Initially Steve had intended to follow his father into farm management, but instead decided to take up a four-year Mechanical Engineering apprenticeship at Rolls Royce.
From here Steve went on to become Technical Sales Engineer at Parker Plant, then Engineering Manager at Universal Conveyors, before taking up the role of Engineering Director at ConSpare where he was integral in the commissioning and successful delivery of nuclear quality concrete to Hinkley Point C, the first of a new generation of power stations to be built in the UK.
Favourite quote – “If you want to make it happen, you’ve got to actually do something.”
Joining the Agg Pro team
Steve’s work ethic and ethos is one of hard work, stopping at nothing to get the job done and a meticulous focus on service and support.
This very much mirrors the philosophy of Agg Pro, a factor paramount in Steve taking on the challenge of building on the companies previous 25 years of success.
“When the opportunity presented itself to join a successful, thriving company, leader in its field, you don’t have to think twice. The diversity of the product portfolio is something that really appeals to me, I’m beyond excited to get started.”
Over and above
Steve doesn’t take his role and responsibilities lightly and his customers are always at the forefront of his mind.
So much so, that despite being out on his birthday for a meal with family and friends, he took a call from a customer. He then proceeded to arrange for the delivery of the required parts to the restaurant car park via courier and loaded into the back of his pickup.
The parts were then on site early the next morning to meet his engineer and the machine was fixed, with downtime kept to an absolute minimum.
