We have a new four-legged recruit that has joined the Allendale Group team and his name is Pancake who happens to be a Corgi. He’s our smallest (and cutest) staff member who’s day-to-day tasks will involve patrolling the office, eating treats and bringing a lot of joy to the other members of the team.

We’re sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of Pancake the office dog on our social media pages, follow and like our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn pages to see more of him.

It’s a great pleasure to welcome our new Machine DRO Engineering Products Manager and Technical Product Specialist, Phil Cadman.

Phil comes with a wealth of Metrology knowledge and experience as he joins us after 15 years at Bowers Group, operating in many areas, latterly as Midlands Area Sales Manager and National Accounts Manager, supplying Metrology solutions across many industry sectors. Other roles include being a Moore & Wright Product Manager and before that role, Phil was the UK Sales Manager for Bowers Group. Metrology has been a part of Phil’s working career from an early age – he joined Cromwell Tools for a total of 11 years where he joined straight from school. Firstly, he worked in Metrology carrying out repairs to a wide range of measuring products in their UKAS facility, before moving into a sales environment, hence his experience in distribution, gaining experience across many product categories.

However, Phil’s career hasn’t always been based on Metrology and Engineering Tools. Prior to joining Bowers Group, Phil worked at a Plant Hire company for 4 years as a Depot Manager.

Centrally based in Leicestershire, Phil has many hobbies and one, in particular, is linked to Measuring Tools. He enjoys restoring classic vehicles at his home garage and sees it as an on-going project to keep him busy. Phil is also a very keen fisherman and a very good one at that! We’re sure he can cast his knowledge out to potential new customers and ‘catch’ their attention on how Machine DRO products can benefit their business. The future is looking bright, good luck from the Allendale team.
