Meet the team – Heber strengthens its Engineering team

The engineering team are delighted to welcome two new members to the function. Dave Baker (pictured left) and Joe Pratt (pictured right) arrived at the beginning of September and as Electronics Engineers, are already fully integrated into the team.

Dave is a recent graduate of London’s South Bank University after taking the brave decision to make a career change. He went back to University to pursue his love of engineering through an Electrical and Electronics Engineering Degree and Heber is his first role in his new career. So far he is delighted with the move! Dave comments: “So far, working with Heber is so much more than I expected. There is a fantastic opportunity to develop my skills through working on a broad range of tasks, projects and clients.” He adds: “Even in the first few weeks, I have been able to work on a really wide range of different engineering techniques from design to testing. It’s been fascinating so far and I am so pleased I made the career move!”

When not at Heber, Dave is developing his language skills through an Italian course to enable him to continue to enjoy his love of travel.

Joe has a background in electronic engineering and joined Heber from an organisation manufacturing electronic products for super cars. He was tempted away by the opportunity to make the move back to the South West and to be part of an expert team. Since starting at Heber, Joe has focused on firmware and electronic design. In particular, he has really enjoyed working on the HomeServe project (read more in our ‘Leakbot’ article in this newsletter). Joe says: “I am really enjoying the move to Heber. Being part of such a ‘family’ team is great in that you really feel that you can make a difference. There’s lots of friendly faces and everyone really works together to share ideas and make you feel welcome.”

Joe continues his passion for engineering away from Heber, where he enjoys restoring old motorcycles and cars. His latest project is rebuilding a VW Golf GTi MkII – which he hopes to race as an amateur once it’s finished!

Wireless Measurement

As a rapidly growing business, Elstat was looking to establish an ongoing partnership with a trusted electronic design and manufacturing firm. Elstat was developing a refrigeration energy management system for beverage coolers, on a very tight timescale, that utilised wireless technology to allow for complete installation flexibility.
