Dave Cuff, Mechanical Contracts Supervisor, Imtech Inviron
I have had several roles within different areas of the business throughout my years working at Imtech. I initially joined in 1998 as a Pipe Fitter’s Mate and later a Pipe Fitter, working on various sites across the UK. I then progressed to become a Mobile Service Engineer at Ipswich, working within the maintenance aspect of the business, before moving to a static site in the City of London as a Mechanical Engineer. Four years later I returned to the Ipswich office to take up my current role as Mechanical Contracts Supervisor with Suffolk County Council.
