The Importance of Staff Development

May 5th, 2021

We think it’s really important as a company to give our staff the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills.  We’re also really proud that a number of our staff started out as an apprentice at Perry and have continued to work for us since!  Here’s a quick update at what some of our staff have been up to recently with their continual personal development:

Greg Lyons – Buyer

Greg is one of our process equipment buyers and workshop operations manager.  He started with Perry in 2007 as a business apprentice, and once he’d spent a bit of time getting familiar with our process equipment, he was soon buying it as part of our purchasing team!  Greg hasn’t stopped learning since really, but most recently he’s completed his BA (Hons) degree in Management Practice.

Greg recently took part in an online talk with Leeds City College as part of their progression week, and was able to let students know the career opportunities that can become available through apprenticeships.


Warehouse Team:

Our warehouse team are time served skilled engineers with excellent knowledge and experience of process equipment in general.  A few of them have been busy with additional learning recently, as follows: 

Declan Middleton – Engineering Workshop Team Leader

Declan joined Perry in 2014 as an apprentice in multi skilled engineering maintenance, and now oversees our engineering workshop.  He is currently half way through his BEng degree in Mechanical Engineering through Teesside University!

Alex Johnson & Alex Ramshaw – Process Equipment Technicians

Our process equipment technicians are multi-skilled engineers responsible for the overhaul of equipment and testing.  They’ve both been part of the team for over 5 years and have recently competed some higher education qualifications.  Alex Johnson now has his HNC in Mechanical Engineering and Alex Ramshaw has completed his HND in Mechanical Engineering.  

Well done team!

Where can Languages Take You?

April 28th, 2021

Our colleague Julie Morris-Davison recently took part in the online North East Festival of Languages event, sharing her language journey and knowledge with over 200 secondary school pupils!  Julie was one of four business ambassadors taking part in the event to explain how they useFrench, German, Spanish and Italian in a range of industries. 

Julie has always enjoyed learning languages from her early school years, and she knew she wanted to have a career using them.  She graduated in French, German and International Marketing at Northumbria University which included two 6-month placements in Reims, France and Heidelberg, Germany.  After graduation she secured full time employment with a number of companies in the North East working in their marketing or sales departments helping them develop export sales to Europe before deciding to move to Germany in 1999 where she spent 7 years living and working as an Export Sales Co-ordinator.  She returned back to the North East in 2006 where she joined Perry as a Sales Manager. 

Julie is primarily responsible for looking after our customers in Germany & France, but she also looks after some of our customers in the UK and the rest of the world.  She’s a regular face at our European exhibitions, and when possible, makes several trips to visit her customers in Germany.
