IDC welcomed two new staff to the team recently; Simon Rhodes as Business Development Manager and Nick Brown as a Design Engineer.

Simon comes from a solid medical industry background, having worked in the world of medical devices for the past 25 years. It was IDC’s strength in medical design that attracted Simon to his new role initially.

Simon comments, “Being involved in medical technology is very important to me, not only in terms of interest, but making a difference to patients’ lives matters. When I first came to IDC it quickly became apparent that the team prides itself on results and quality seems to be at the heart of the business.”

Simon will be showcasing IDC at several forthcoming events, including MedTech Expo, Medical Innovation Day, and a variety of Medilink events.

Nick joins IDC’s engineering team after gaining a 1st class MEng in Motor Sports Engineering. Prior to IDC he completed a placement at Juno Racing Cars where he designed, assembled and maintained sports prototype race cars. He also worked as a part-time race mechanic last summer. Nick’s final year at university was heavily projects based and it was his enjoyment of this variety that attracted him to IDC, with its wide project experience.

Nick explains, “When I began researching IDC I was interested in the opportunity to work on many different projects. Once I went through the interview process, I was impressed by the positive and friendly work culture of the company. Now in my new role, I’m enjoying working on projects that use a wide variety of engineering skills and I’m looking forward to exposure to new projects to develop my skills further.”

Nick has already had a taste of cutting edge design while working on his final year university project to design a potential ‘world first’ metal additive manufactured (3D printed Aluminium) connecting rod for one of the university’s competition vehicles.
