IDC is delighted to welcome five talented new individuals to the team. 2018 has been a busy year for IDC, with some exciting projects across a variety of industries. This surge in business has provided an opportunity to hand-pick some of the best creative talent available.
The new recruits include two new mechanical design engineers: Harry Mason and Lewis Lindop. Luke Williams and Ellie Hammett also join the team as product design engineers.
Harry is not entirely new to IDC, having done a student placement at IDC while studying for an MEng at the University of Nottingham. When a job opportunity came up at IDC, he was keen to return. He explains, "I worked on great projects alongside some excellent designers, and wanted to continue doing so."
IDC has a successful student placement scheme and Ellie has joined the team on a year's placement from her 5 year MEng course at the University of Leeds. Lewis did a similar placement for his MEng at the University of Bath and before joining IDC he worked at MSA Latchways designing safety-critical products for people working at height.
All four of the new designers share the same reasons for choosing IDC. Loughborough product design graduate, Luke, comments, "The variety of projects that IDC works on, its record of getting successful products to market, and IDC’s on-site prototyping and manufacturing capabilities really attracted me to the company.”
IDC has also appointed Chris Toureau for business development. Coming from a design background himself, Chris offers a valuable support channel for potential clients, understanding both their technical and commercial needs.
MD, Stephen Knowles, fully appreciates the talent of his team, "I'm thrilled that we have some of the brightest young minds in combination with experienced experts. This means we can offer an outstanding multi-disciplinary team of designers and engineers to develop the very best products for our clients."
