Shepcote Engineering People
Daniel Cornah joins Shepcote Engineering
Originally from Port Sunlight on the Wirral, Daniel joins us after achieving a 2:1 in Mechanical Engineering BEng at Sheffield University and has a keen eye for design and manufacturing.
After falling in love with Sheffield, mainly due to the pubs and the fantastic ale they have to offer, he has decided to stay and pursue his career at Shepcote. He enjoys extreme sports such as snowboarding, surfing, skating and skiing as well as being devout supporter of Liverpool FC, even though it is a struggle sometimes, and regularly plays 5 a-side. His dream is to end up retiring in New Zealand making and designing surfboards whilst basking in the beautiful scenery.
We wish him all the best as he starts a, hopefully, successful and fruitful engineering career.
Rodger Birley Retires
Rodger Birley, our works director, retired after many years’ service, a co-owner of company from its inception in 1990 Rodger has worked tirelessly and closely with customers, suppliers and employees right up to his retirement at the age of 74.
Rodger will always be held in very high regard with everyone who had the pleasure of working with him. Always helpful and encouraging, Rodger will be sorely missed by all. We thank him for all the years friendship and support and wish him and his family all the best in his retirement - may it be a long and happy one.
Terry Scott Retires
Terry Scott, our quality manager, retired after 15 years' service. Terry will be replaced by Arthur Wild, who will assume responsibility for quality assurance in September. Terry has been a valued and hardworking member of the team. We thank Terry for all his efforts and hardwork, and wish him all the best in his retirement - may it be a long and happy one.
If this surname seems very familiar it's because Danny, a key member of our production staff for many years, is a very, very proud 'Uncle Danny' to non-other than Sheffield's very own Olympian Jess Ennis. All the staff at Shepcote Engineering are enormously proud of Jess' achievements and have long followed her career with great interest and pride in our local Sheffield lass!

Retirement of Gordon Kitching

Gordon's colleagues describe him as conscientious and hardworking, well-liked and respected by both staff and customers. He did a superb job for Shepcote Engineering - thank you Gordon!
