Knowledge Shared

Whilst looking across Reekie Machining’s machine shop, it is a rewarding sight to see a time served turner with over 50 years of experience, sharing and passing on his knowledge to a 4th year apprentice at the start of his career working in Mechanical Engineering.

Standing side by side at the Broadbent vertical borer, turning an impellor, they were keeping a watchful eye on the job, whilst Willie was explaining to Darren the process points for the machine.

Technology continues to move forward and at Reekies we are continually developing what we can do and offer, including a portable CNC machining.  This is all possible through continuing to train and develop our staff, ensuring strong foundations skills from the start of the journey.  An integral part of this is the passing on of knowledge and experience from one generation to the next.  A vital part of the apprentices learning and rewarding for those passing on their knowledge.

Landmark Moment

Our newly developed CNC Thread Milling Machine has just reached a landmark moment, 1000 off M98x200 deep holes, machined on a project Reekie Machining are working on in The Netherlands.

The thread milling machine, is the vision and design of the Insitu Engineering Team, utilising the expertise of Alan Blakey, the Senior Design Engineer.  This portable CNC machine is machining every hole to specification, first time, every time.  Providing the customer with an efficient, quick, and accurate process.

Christmas Jumper Day (and more!)

Look what got left under our Christmas tree, on Thursday 9th December as the staff at Reekie Machining, donned their Christmas jumpers, along with Christmas t-shirts, Santa hats, head boppers, face masks and even underfrillies.  We even had our very own Santa look alike, aka Peter our Machine Shop Supervisor.

Whilst being good fun and bringing a smile to everyone face and a mince pie at morning tea break too, it was done in aid of Renfrewshire Foodbank.  The staff were very generous in bringing in goodies and making donations.

Picture, in their “dashing” Christmas attire are some of the staff from Project Engineers to millers and turners and the office staff.    We are still waiting for the photographic evidence that out insitu squad were cosy on site in their Christmas jumpers too!

Bags of Goodies

Let the Celebrations begin!

There may be limited opportunities this year to don the festive jumpers, so to make sure they got an outing and to bring a little Christmas cheer, on Friday the of 4th December the staff at Reekie’s were encouraged to pull on their best/favourite Christmas jumper or hat, or wear any festive item and make a donation to Erskine, double if they didn’t join the festive fun!

Staff working from home also participated; Graeme can be seen here with his Christmas New York skyline jumper on.  And our Machine Shop Supervisor, Peter, not only had one Christmas jumper on, but underneath the one pictured, is another!!!

We are really please that the staff raised a total of £218.70. and Reekie’s Managing Director, David Reekie has offered to match fund this,  so the grand total of £437.40 will be on it’s way to Erskine to help support the really valuable work that they do.
