Here at Alco, we like to give recognition and praise to our number one asset, our staff. From time to time we highlight a staff member at random and find out a little more about what they do here, how long they’ve been with the company and what they think about working at Alco Valves Group. This month we’ll be focusing our attention on Noel Doidge, our Technical Sales Supervisor
Noel started his journey with Alco four years ago as a Design Engineer working in our busy Engineering offices. As a result of his work ethic, professionalism and leadership qualities, he was promoted to the position of Technical Sales Engineer. Following this, he was promoted to and is currently at the position of a Technical Sales Supervisor.
Noel’s keen interest in cars and motorsport led him into the field of Mechanical Engineering and he continues to enjoy his hobbies whilst at the same time, work in an industry that helps him learn more about engineering.
He shared some of his thoughts on working at Alco, “When I came into the business, I was led by seniors and now I am proud to lead people. I have learnt how to change and adapt and lead by example and Alco has given me the chance to grow. Each of the positions has had their own challenges and I have improved and developed through all these stages.”
He further commented on being a part of two different departments “I have worked in both the Engineering and Sales departments and communication plays a vital role in each of them. At Alco we have such a developed team of professionals and I can definitely say we have established a great system of communication.”
Noel also shared his thoughts on how the company has grown since he started, “The take over from Graco was obviously huge for us, it has opened up so many opportunities. We are now in the position to manufacture bigger and better quality products, and we are also in a better position to engineer and design more technically advance products because of the infrastructure we have been able to build with the help of Graco.”
Noel’s friendly and sociable personality have made him a very popular throughout the company and engineering departments. We are very glad to have staff members like Noel Doidge as part of our team. It is their hard work and can-do attitude that plays a vital role in taking the company to greater heights.
