*When asked about his time at CoolKit, Drew said, “I am extremely proud to still be a part of this company and how it’s grown from the four people that we had when it first started. It also says something about the company that the three people that started along with Rupert all still work here, (myself, Paul McCaffrey and Mark Jepson).”

Scott who started in 2005 has been a valuable member of the team for 16 years. In his first few years, he primarily operated the CNC machine while pursuing an NVQ in manufacturing through North Lancs Training Group. Over the years, his role evolved within the manufacturing department, involving tasks such as working on the press, laminating, and operating the saw when needed. He also stepped into the role of a supervisor during backshifts.”

Paul, who joined CoolKit in its early days, has played a key role in the manufacturing department, contributing to the company’s growth and success.
