A New Welder joins the Team

Our new Fabricator & Welder, Gerry Bateman joins us with a wealth of experience from previous roles and his interests outside of work.

Since the age of 4 he has had an interest in Single Wheel Tractors and Vintage Ploughing.  Then at 12 he developed an interest in metalwork and welding, which was a big part of restoring garden tractors.

His love of restoration took him to complete some voluntary projects with the Cambridge Bomber and Fighter Society where he made a complete fuselage for a Hawker Fury and worked on a Hurricane Mark 1.

He honed his skills by completing a City and Guilds Course at Duxford and has developed his hobbies into a successful career.

In the 1980s he worked for Clifton Engineering and then moved on to roles at Reco in Huntingdon and Crescent Staircases in Cambridge.  His last role before joining Clifton Rubber was for Metalcraft on Nuclear Dustbins, Submarines and Rescue Vessels.

Now Gerry is responsible for all the company’s welding projects, including drilling and working on lathes.

Outside of work he continues his interest in restoring Stationary Engines and Garden Ploughing.
