Neil Spencer 35 years service

Congratulations and Thank You to Neil Spencer!

We’re celebrating with Neil Spencer today who’s been with us for an impressive 35 years!!!

Neil began his career at Swift Engineering which was acquired by Canford in 1998. A proud family man, Neil moved with the business to Dorset where he was heavily involved in helping to set up production and facilitating a smooth transition to Canford. Neil loved living in Dorset so much that he decided to stay permanently and has continued to support Canford as manufacturing capabilities on the Isle of Portland have been expanded considerably.

Canfords’ Portland Manufacturing Plant is taking ever increasing responsibility, not just for high-quality production, but also for direct liaison with clients which in many cases leads directly to bespoke solutions and new product development. The team at Portland are now producing connectivity solutions for broadcasting and high-calibre AV installations around the world, market leading carbon fibre boom poles used in big budget TV drama series and Hollywood film production, and fibre optic hardware which is broadcasting premier league football, international music festivals and the occasional royal wedding around the globe. Canford is able to deliver these products through the dedication and hardworking of “The Team”, who together, with Neil’s 35 years, have worked at Canford for a combined 1996 years. Well done Neil and we look forward to the next chapter together!
