We are very pleased to announce that Sid Hickman, who first joined us in 2009 as a machinist, has this week been promoted to Machine Shop Supervisor.
Promoting from within the team was something we aspired to when we set Cube Precision Engineering up almost 10 years ago, we are focused on creating opportunities for the team through both training and career development.
Sid was in fact one of our first employees when Cube Precision Engineering was founded in 2009, and over the years’ he has continually looked for opportunities to increase his responsibility within the team. Just two years ago Sid was influential in bringing programming software onto the shop floor so that our machinists could have the autonomy to make changes as required, rather than having to rely on our busy CAD department. Sid’s proactive, problem solving ability has been an invaluable quality to have in the team.
As our business is continuing to grow, we identified the need to create a new role of Machine Shop Supervisor, to support our existing Machine Shop Manager to help plan the machines and be on hand to solve problems as required. Sid was the natural choice to progress into this role.
Sid is continuing his own career development with an Institute of Leadership and Management course, outside of his role at Cube. We’re proud of Sid’s ambition and are committed to support him in his development in whatever way that we can.
Not surprisingly, Sid’s favourite modules so far have been problem solving and decision making.
Whether it’s in the Automotive, Aerospace & Defence or Commercial sector, problem solving is something Cube excels at. From press tools, jigs and fixtures through to low volume try out tools and complex progression tooling we can help. Have a look at some of our past projects and let’s chat.20th December 2018
