Meet The Team – John Hedington
April 26, 2021
Author: Emma Hodgson, Marketing Executive
This month is a special Meet the Team as we introduce John Hedington who has been with DC Norris for 20 Years! John started at DCN in 2001 working in the machine shop operating manual lathes and milling machines. He soon became a popular and very capable part of the department, and was promoted to Machine Shop Supervisor. Since then John has helped introduce CNC lathes and machining centres into the department making it more efficient and expanding its capacities and capabilities.
When DCN purchased the Gy-roll multi-spindle drill business, John was the obvious choice to take over the day-to-day management and sales for the business. With our next plan for the machine shop to be a move into 5 axis machining, John will be at the forefront of the implementation again using his enthusiasm and experience to ensure its success.
John is a well-liked and popular member of the team, and his jovial character brings a cheery outlook whilst maintaining his supervisory responsibilities and ensuring his team are working effectively. He is also known to pull the odd practical joke from time to time on those he knows well.
John says, “I have met some lovely people at DCN over the years, I am very proud of the machine shop and the team is the best I’ve ever had. David Norris has backed us all the way.”
In his spare time, John enjoys golf, motor racing and motor cycling.
Thank you John for 20 years of service!
