Briggs’ Engineering Director features in podcast

Briggs of Burton’s Engineering Director, George Crombie recently joined Thinking it Better’s ‘One Thought at a Time’ podcast.

George began his journey surrounded by engineering and crafting from a young age. Taking his passion of understanding how things are put together, he joined Briggs on a summer internship which led to his current role of managing large global engineering projects and overseeing all engineering activities for the group.

George highlighted Briggs’ growth over the last 5 years, delivering projects in the Brewing, Distilling, Pharmaceutical and Food industries. George spoke passionately about the Briggs team taking pride in supporting the creation of so many household brands. From breaking ground at a plant, to seeing a tangible product and being able to share it with family and friends is satisfying.

He continued to say:

“We can have the toughest day on the plant, but also be able to step away from that. With those same colleagues, friends and socialise with them. Have a sense of fun, look back at what you’ve done”.

Briggs always strives to encourage their team to separate the serious from the fun which helps them to deliver what we promise.

George adds that the team are always interested in the job they’re performing, which leads to a sense of pride. The team are eager to follow Briggs on a journey to deliver exciting projects. George, as an Engineering Director foresees a continuous plan to grow the company across sectors and bringing the team along on that journey.
