Jordans & Ryvita engineering head to address A4E

01 May 2012

Tristan Holloway, the site engineering and maintenance manager at The Jordans & Ryvita Co, has given details of his presentation to Appetite for Engineering at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire on 12 June

In a presentation entitled 'Manufacturing a Skills Solution', Tristan Holloway, Site Engineering & Maintenance Manager at The Jordans & Ryvita Company, will address delegates at Appetite for Engineering.

''Faced with advances in technology and increased demands on production, the engineering team now poses a threat to the business through retirement and skills gaps,'' says Tristan. ''I will be talking about the importance to understand the skills knowledge base through competency testing to then improve training and development and to identify areas of opportunity to recruit. I will also discuss the importance to look outside native industries for new ways to drive improvements.''

Tristan has worked for J&R for eight years, having joined the business from Kerry Group. Since joining the business I have developed automation of the processes, application of new technologies, skills distribution, implementation of an apprenticeship program and reintegration of engineering in the production teams. I am passionate about development of the team and keen to promote the customer focus towards production to breakdown the divide in structures and embed ownership and enterprise.
