As an employee owned company, our employees are at the heart of everything that we do. Therefore, each Wednesday over a 12 week period we are sharing interviews with our employee owners. Now in the 8 th of our Meet the Owner Profiles, meet George.
Can you please tell us a little about yourself and what you do?
I am George Nicoll and I work in the Extrusion department as a machine operator. I have been at Scott & Fyfe for 18 years now and worked in a few different departments including our Flooring POD where we manufacture a stitch bonded and creped paper product for carpet underlay backings and also in our Composite POD where we manufacture glass reinforcement fabrics. Now I work in our Extrusion department.
How does a typical day at Scott & Fyfe look for you?
I work on a shift system varying between day and night shift on our extrusion line. Here I purge the machine, set it up for new runs and then manufacture the product on it. Predominantly we extrude Polypropylene tapes and monofilament which we then use in our own production.
Is there anything others might now know about you?
I am an enhanced skill first aider at Scott & Fyfe and on the Safe Zone bus which I volunteer on. This is a bus which travels around the Dundee area providing medical assistance alongside the police and ambulance service. At the weekends the bus will often be parked outside of the local nightclubs to help vulnerable people who otherwise may end up in A&E and we also cover football and ice hockey games. At one point, over a 20 night period the bus helped 130 people. It is really rewarding.
