Meet the team - Dave Cruse

Dave Cruse manages Gibbons’ electric motor rewinds workshop and he took a few minutes out of his busy day to chat about his role as well as revealing a few of his favourite things.

How long have you worked for Gibbons?

I started in 1998, so I’ve been here 16 years now.

What does your job involve?

I manage the rewinds workshop, so I’m in charge of making sure all work is done to the highest standard and on schedule. I’m also hands-on so I do a lot of electric motor repairs and rewinds myself.

What’s the first thing you do when you arrive at work?

I clock in, put my overalls on and because I’m always in nice and early I have time for a cup of coffee before I start!

Have you always been involved in engineering?

Yes, I’ve been in this line of employment all my working life.

Has the company changed much since you’ve been here? 

Very much so, especially since we outgrew the old workshop and had to build a new one!

What’s your favourite film? 

The Shawshank Redemption.

What stresses you out?

I always like to be on time, so tardiness really winds me up!

What’s your favourite place in the world? 

Florida’s great – I’d love to live there one day.

Who would you most like to be stuck on a desert island with?

Someone who could cook so I wouldn't starve to death!

What’s your favourite meal? 

It’s got to be steak, cooked medium well.
