Getting To Know… Reece Snow
We know our manufacturing is just as important as our people. That’s why we want you to get to know them a little better. So, next up is Reece Snow…
Summarise your role at Salamander in just one paragraph
It’s very varied considering the wide range of industries that we supply to. My role mainly consists of pricing up whatever our customer requires, utilising Salamander’s in-house machinery and skillsets. I determine the best and most cost-effective way in order to achieve what our client requires.
What’s your absolute favourite part of the job?
The varied drawings that I receive for pricing – especially when they are parts that you instantly recognise from your day-to-day life outside of work. It’s so rewarding to see something that has gone through your works and to know that you’ve aided in the manufacturing of that specific part.
Share an interesting fact about you that we might not know.
I’m a qualified scuba diver.
Which one word would your Salamander colleagues use to describe you?
And the word you think best describes Salamander?
Why do you personally think Salamander stands out from its competitors?
Our ability to react at a fast pace throughout the entire company. From receiving fast, accurate quotations to getting products out of the door. We work closely with our customers to keep to their timeframes.
The phone rings and it’s your dream client… who would it be?
What’s the most personally satisfying moment in your Salamander career so far?
Probably being trusted with one of our biggest spending accounts and knowing that I was being handed that responsibility.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
A firefighter of course!
What is the biggest challenge facing the sheet metal manufacturing industry over the next 12 months?
I’d say it’s about staying ahead of the competitors in terms of machinery. We need to make sure our work is being produced with the latest technology.
