Introducing Bill

March 28, 2012

Have you met Bill? Bill Dean is our new stock room controller and data retrieval analyst. Bill comes to us with a huge amount of experience in electro-mechanical manufacturing and is an instrument maker by trade having started working life making microscopes – very intense, close work requiring amazing attention to detail. 

As technology has progressed Bill moved to electro-mechanical manufacturing, combining electronics and electric circuitry with mechanical systems to make lesion generators for the medical sector.

Bill likes to keep fit and is a keen swimmer and enjoys walking on the South Downs. He plays golf but confesses: “very badly” and he restricts his love of football to the armchair variety – watching it, along with motor racing and more golf!

A family man with two grandchildren he “can’t get enough of”, Bill enjoys a good meal out with his family and friends.

At Van Walt Bill manages our stock position to ensure efficiency for both us and our customers.  He also works with our equipment on the data retrieval side to ensure whenever a customer’s instrument is returned precious data is not lost. Often this data can represent months of monitoring on which key environmental decisions are based, so a safe pair of hands in its recovery is vital.

We all wish Bill best of luck in his new role.
