Fitter and Machinist
I have been working at PERSAS for twenty-two years as a Fitter and Machinist.
I started out with the team rebuilding pneumatic starters and air tools, but began undertaking new responsibilities as the company grew and expanded into other products.
I’m now trained to service pressure cleaners and hydraulic equipment, and I’ also responsible for the repair, testing and calibration of torque tools and equipment.
My current role focuses on running the company’s on-site testing truck. I use this to test and calibrate hydraulic, pneumatic and torque equipment in various mines and other locations.
Outside of work, motorsports are my passion. I always watch the V8 Supercars and Formula One races. Fifteen years ago, I used to race sprint karts. I’ve since moved on to super karts – doing 160km/h with your backside 25mm off the ground is a real buzz.
