Steve Vick International (SVI) are delighted to announce that three staff members are celebrating their 20th year with the company. Nick Robinson, Wendy Spencer and Shawn Biggs all began their SVI journey in the millennium year of 2000.
Nick Robinson started as Chief Engineer in our Rotamole Department and travelled the country promoting SVI’s directional drilling machines. Meanwhile the pipe handling products were gaining in popularity and it was not long before Nick moved over to head this up as Design & Development Engineer. Nick has gone on to design many ground-breaking products for SVI including the Hexi Trailer, Rapid Cutters, the MACAW’s, CRACKERJACK, the family of Pipe Handlers and most recently our Perpetual Pipe Pusher.
Wendy Spencer joined the company at the age of sixteen as Steve’s PA. She went on to help the sales and marketing department and hire admin before finally settling in the accounts department. Starting as accounts assistant Wendy decided to further develop her career by studying for her AAT and a course in business management. In 2015, as the accounts team grew, Wendy was promoted to Accounts Manager and is now studying for her CIMA exams.
Wendy commented: “Steve Vick International is an exciting and dynamic place to work. No day is ever the same and that keeps me on my toes. SVI is a family run business which has grown enormously over the years and I’m pleased to say that the family values are still in place today. I’m looking forward to a bright future at SVI as my role continues to develop.”
When the hardware side of the Steve Vick International business began to grow, Shawn Biggs was employed in the year 2000 to help deliver products to site and make sure they arrived on time. He drove all over the country, as far as Scotland, to deliver a whole range of SVI equipment, including, amongst other things, the Hexi Trailer. Previously, Shawn had been a postman which made him the ideal candidate for the job. Four years ago, Shawn hung up his driving hat and moved into the Production team as warehouse co-ordinator.
Steve Vick, Chairman at Steve Vick International commented,
“I am always extremely pleased to see staff reach a major milestone in their career at Steve Vick International. Our staff are essential to the success of the business and, as the company has changed and expanded, it’s been a pleasure to see our staff grow and develop too. I’d like to congratulate, on behalf of myself, Angela and the SVI team Wendy, Nick and Shawn on their 20th Anniversary.”
