Gary Spinks


Doesn't like to wear socks, even in winter. International man of mystery, without the velvet suit and Union Jack jaguar. Sleeps little and always on hand to service engineering needs. Owns a kilt.

Phil Ashton


With the former body shape of Baloo (cf: Jungle Book), and the brain of the Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz, Phil brings an eclectic mix of intelligence, laughter and pain to the team. Armchair sportsman, real-time character and would be Publican. Has orange hair by birth. So did the Milkman.

Chris Stevens


Tarquin to his friends and Michelle at weekends. Battle hardened Semiconductor Sales person, who spends his spare time with his soldering iron at the ready. Motivated. The Peter Pan of the team, as he has the baby face that he had when we first met him 20 years ago.

Keith Jackson


The Northern Connection. Has been mistaken for Leslie Philips. Hello. Lively, tactile and full of (northern) erudite wit. Still goes on 18-30 holidays even though he has a half century under his belt. Knows the inside of the Semiconductor business better than most. Attends Geekfests. Reads data sheets in his sleep.
