David retires after 26 years at Anglia Engineering Solutions

  • Mel Dent

David Barker has just retired from Anglia Engineering Solutions after more than a quarter of a century of valuable service. David is pictured above receiving some Marks and Spencers vouchers from Gary Carlton, Managing Director of Anglia Engineering Solutions, when he retired on 20th October 2017.

65-year-old David began his career when he left school aged 15 and joined a local engineering firm in Waltham called C.J. Porters Ltd, as an Apprentice Turner, where the work was mainly for engine plants within the automobile industry. He has always managed to find work locally and joined Anglia Engineering Solutions as a Turner in 1991.

David said, “I have always enjoyed the variety of the work at AES, machining anything from a few millimetres, to over a metre in diameter. When you spend so much of life at work you need to get on with the people you work with, and in that I consider that have been very fortunate.”

When asked for a quote, David said something that is so true, “Common Sense is not all that common.”

All our best wishes for a long and happy retirement go to David and his wife Gill who is also retiring, so that they can enjoy their leisure time together.
