Willie is one of the founder members of Almond Engineering having been with the company since day one in 1979. Starting on the tools as a ‘fresh-faced young Laddie’, Willie progressed to Director, then Managing Director and eventually owner before selling the business in 2008. Willie has been a massive presence at Almond for 40 years and has been one of the main drivers of our success. It’s fair to say if you know Almond, you know Willie.
We could write a book on Willie’s contribution to Almond and to our customers, but suffice to say we will all miss working with Willie on a daily basis. Willie will retire on the 28th June. Fortunately, he intends to stay in touch, returning from time to time to share his immense knowledge and help with interesting projects.
We have been planning for this day for some years now and we have built a very strong team who Willie has been mentoring and teaching the Almond way. Please don’t hesitate to contact Chris Smith (MD), Michelle Quinn (Director), John Gilmour (Sales and Estimating Manager), Steven Wilson (Technical Manager) or Grant Cameron (Design manager) should we be able to help with anything.
