Paul has been fascinated by automotive engineering since the age of ten. After completing his degree in engineering with sponsorship from Jaguar he came to Teesside to study Industrial Design – which was fun but mainly taught him that his future was in engineering. He then joined Nifco UK (then called Elta plastics) as their first design engineer. 23 years later, finding solutions to engineering problems still gives him the greatest satisfaction. The recent growth and development of the Design and R&D teams means that the future looks more fascinating than ever.
