After graduation he joined a plant engineering department of a major telecommunications manufacturing company. He held positions as Plant Engineering Draftsman, Supervisor of Building Services and Facilities Engineering Project Co-ordinator.
In March of 1996 Bruce began with DDDG Engineering Services as a Mechanical Draftsperson. Bruce is keen to take advantage of the latest enhancements of AutoCAD software. He has been our primary draftsperson on most projects for the last 24 years.
Bruce was part of a team that designed and built a machine capable of stamping, forming and assembling transformer cores. Approximately 350 drawings were required for this project.
