The Fernite Questionnaire: –

What do you like about Fernite?  

Fernite has a long history of manufacturing in Sheffield. It’s great to be involved in a British manufacturing Company especially one that has the history but also embraces a modern approach. There is a drive to improve manufacturing processes and introduce efficiencies with a  determination to exceed customers’ expectations. When you work for a company that puts the customer at the heart of its decisions it becomes both rewarding and enjoyable to be a part of it.

I’m delighted to have recently become a part of the Fernite story and look forward to contributing to the Fernite success over many more years. Fernite not only feels like a family business but it genuinely values the contributions of its employees and that’s really important.

What is your favourite quote? 

A man with a sad face should not open a shop.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I enjoy a family holiday in St Ives, Cornwall.  I have omitted the word relaxing because I have two young boys so relaxing doesn’t happen.  What we do instead is have a lot of fun – body boarding, swimming and even the odd game of bingo with a pint.

Which super-hero would you like to be and why? 

Super Ted.  I’d take on Pistol Pete and give him a taste of what for.

If you could pick anything to be really good at what would it be?

Picking lottery numbers or a good horse.  But really I would pick being a really good person, father and husband.

What is your favourite day trip?  

I like a day at the races with my wife or a camping trip with the whole family.

What are your hobbies & a bit about them?   

I love watching my boy play football.  I follow my local football team too.  Apart from that, I love most international sports especially cricket, rugby, formula 1 and football.

A perfect Sunday is a bottle of red, a roast dinner and formula 1 on the box (now a flat screen).

What is your favourite drink?  

I enjoy Penderyn whisky.   Penderyn Distillery produces award-winning single malt whiskies and spirits in the foothills of the magnificent Brecon Beacons in South Wales.

What do you dream of?  

Apart from winning the lottery?  I don’t dream my days away.  I live life.

What things do you like?  

Nice people, a fine whisky, a game Texas hold em, watching my boys grow up.

What do you dislike? 

Negativity in all its shapes and forms. And garden peas.
