Meet The Team
Director and Founder
My background: I spent a long time getting grey hair working in many different countries throughout the world and signing contracts for UK companies, before founding Europac 3D/My3DImage.
At work: As the MD, I lead our team of young engineers to be the best at scanning and reverse engineering in the world, to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.
When I’m not at work: I explore the Cheshire countryside by bike and love to return to a BBQ and time with friends and family. I am also very happy to drink red wine over dinner, seated on a terrace overlooking the Tuscan countryside…
The world would be worse without: Excellent red wine.
My background: A Cardiff University Business graduate, I began my career at Europac3d/My3DImage in 1998 as a CNC programmer on CMMs, mainly focused on Automotive and Aircraft clients. A natural progression from this led to learning 3d laser scanning on co-ordinate measuring arms and has been my passion ever since.
At work: I have been responsible for leading the company into new areas of business other than our traditional engineering strengths, such as film and TV, art, archaeology, advertising and commercial body scanning/3d printing.
When I’m not at work: I spend most of my time with the family and squeeze in a few triathlons here and there.
The world would be worse without: Ideas.
3D Print Supervisor
My background: A wide experience including restaurant management and the worlds of outplacement and training. I am a design and technology graduate, which comes in handy at Europac3d/My3DImage.
At work: I oversee the 3D printing that takes place at 3DPrintworx and make sure there’s always a warm welcome and plenty of biscuits on hand for our visitors.
When I’m not at work: I like to watch films (especially zombie films), eat good food with even better company, take long walks (preferably in the sunshine), and visit new places.
The world would be worse without: Milkshakes.
My background: This stems from managing a large team of gardeners for a grounds maintenance company where I worked for ~ 5 years, gaining valuable experience managing all functions of the daily business; today these skills have transferred into the engineering industry.
At work: I have the satisfaction of a very varied role in the office, I am everyone’s point of contact, manage all the customers’ projects and workloads for my exceptional team of engineers, along with invoicing and book keeping to dealing with our suppliers. I get to process everything from start to finish and not often do I let anything pass me, I consider myself organised and thorough and happy to whip the engineers into shape!
When I’m not at work: I can usually be found outside, either gallivanting around the country on my horse nicknamed ‘Donkey’ or training for a half marathon. Any remaining time is spent embellishing my little house and learning all the trades of DIY mastermind!
The world would be worse without: My Princess Donkey.
Senior Applications Engineer
My background: I am an Honours graduate from Sheffield Hallam University who studied Design and Manufacture with Management. Being able to program CAD/CAM, CNC, CMM and VAL I and II Robots I am a valuable member of the Europac 3D/My3DImage technical team. I have worked within most Engineering sectors and have a long background in the use, repair and support of hi-tech machinery.
At work: I oversee the technical aspects of adaption and integration of hardware to fit the customer needs.
When I’m not at work: I like to spend time with my wife and son and go on exotic holidays.

Senior Applications Engineer
My background: Originally from Coventry, I studied Mechanical Engineering at Warwickshire College.
At work: I’m responsible for capturing high quality 3D scans using a variety of scanning equipment and converting the data into useful information for our customers. I run training courses on the various scanners and software that we supply and support the sales team with technical demonstrations.
When I’m not at work: I love being in the fresh air and outdoors, exploring places such as Wales, The Peak District and the Lakes by car, on road bike or on foot. I have a keen interest in road cycling which occupies most of my free time. I also have a Canon SLR and enjoy taking photos of anything and everything.
The world would be worse without: Tea.
My background: Has been varied, having worked in the quality department for a large manufacturing company from the age 16 to 24, I then went to university to study zoology. When I graduated I realised that I wanted to continue my career within the engineering sector.
At work: I have a very interesting role, 3D scanning and printing all kinds of things. Although the tools we use for scanning are essentially the same, the subjects are definitely different!
When I’m not at work: I like to go on mini adventures, driving to and walking around new places, and sometimes partake in the odd bit of cycling (but only when the weather is nice!).
The world would be worse without: Burritos.
My background: Has always been in sales of technical products in a variety of industries, which has taken me across the country – hence my encyclopaedic knowledge of the UK road network – and across the Atlantic to the US – hence my waistline.
At work: I am responsible for product sales with a particular speciality in 3d printers meaning I have seen some sights over the years.
When I’m not at work: I’d like to do as little as possible, however the family has other ideas.
The world would be worse without: Gin.
