In 2016 I accomplished a lot more than I could ever have imagined! I became a First Aider, worked on a range of research and development projects, was highly commended in the regional EEF Apprentice of the Year Award and offered my new job here at Cellbond as Apprentice – ATD Testing. I hope I can continue to make advances in my new role throughout 2017, and further my knowledge of engineering and anthropomorphic test devices. My new job means that I shall be working full time in the ATD Test Facility, certifying crash test dummies, performing development tests on new projects and reporting results to the rest of the Engineering Team.
2017 is going to be a very busy year for Cellbond. We have three big projects on the go at the moment which we will have finished by April. This will leave us ready to start on the most complex dummy we have ever worked on, but we are all ready for the challenge. Feedback from our customers on the products we already supply is extremely positive. I see this as a reflection of the whole Cellbond team (from sales and marketing through to accounts, purchasing, production, testing and despatch) working as hard as possible to produce great products and achieve high levels of customer service.
There are going to be premises changes at Cellbond this year too. Our Stonehill site in Huntingdon is set to undergo a refurbishment and we will expand our floor space to allow for the growth of the ATD production and testing facilities.
I am looking forward to the projects I will be working on and to another successful year at Cellbond. I will keep writing my blog and letting everyone know what we are all up to in Cellbond throughout 2017.
