After 16 years at Midtherm Laser, Dean Cockayne has handed over the key, and the role of Operations Director, to Mark Hannon. Dean began working for Midtherm Laser in 2002 when it consisted of one laser at the back of a factory. Today, following huge growth of the company, he hands over 2 units of 1800 m2 that contain five laser machines, two pressbrakes and one deburring machine.
Midtherm Laser became an AILU member in 2006, and Dean became an enthusiastic supporter of the Job Shop Special Interest Group. He became Chair of the SIG for a number of years.
We all wish Dean a very long and happy retirement as he sets sail for the Meditteranean.
