Conner's Typical Working Day

"At the start of every working day I check the system we use for scheduling orders and see if any new parts have appeared that need making. If so, I release a sub contract letting the team in Production know how long it will take for CNC to complete the part. On a daily basis I will set up and programme the machines for production. Although this may take a long time it is rewarding once it is complete and running. At the moment due to ongoing changes in CNC it has been extremely difficult operate as normal, but working as a team we have managed to overcome this and meet our deadlines on time. I feel proud and honoured to be a valued member of Marl. Together the CNC team strive to meet targets and deadlines and feel a great sense of achievement every time we do this."
