Richard Haines

Richard, with his 25 years of RO experience, has a thorough knowledge of both the industry and our process. Richard has played an important role in the transition from 'old' Phoenix to 'new', and his all-round knowledge is an invaluable asset resource if our technical team is ever unavailable. However, Richard's primary concern is ensuring all our customers' needs are met, so please contact him if you are looking for membrane housings of any configuration.

In his spare time Richard enjoys swimming and getting away in his mobile home.

Vanessa prides herself on high standards. Since joining Phoenix in 2006 she has updated our image and is the constant 'customer voice' in the office. Vanessa also spends her time looking after the welfare of the staff here, ensuring that the team is a happy one. After all, if we look after our staff we can ensure that they are in a better position to look after you.

Bob Dunn

Since joining Phoenix in September 2006 Bob, a Concept Designer, has become an asset to the company. Bob's input has assisted in our continual improvements and efficiency, and he has been instrumental in the provision of our new TIPs. If there is anything you would like to see on a TIP that we are not yet addressing then drop Bob an email and let him do the rest.

Although Bob is still working hard on his second home in France, he always puts the customer first.

Tim Probyn
- Engineering Manager
tel (dd): 00 44 (0)1452 317423 - e-mail:
Tim Probyn

Although only a relatively recent addition to the team, Tim is already becoming well acquainted with every aspect of the engineering function within the company and recognises the huge opportunity for its potential growth within the market place.

In order to capture this opportunity and using his thirty years experience within the engineering industry, specialising in sealing applications, Tim believes that his main focus and challenge will be to develop new product designs and modifications that will provide all our customers with more cost effective and enhanced performing solutions. He is, of course, always available and willing to offer advice or assistance with any technical problems or enquiries that you may have and is only a phone call away.

Tim, by his own admission, is advancing "too quickly" in years but is still very much young at heart and enjoys the thrill and adrenalin rush that he gets when riding his motorcycle. British weather permitting of course!

Adam Stait

Adam has worked his way around the various areas of Phoenix since 1998 when he joined the Company as a mere 'boy'. Consequently, he is building quite a catalogue of knowledge. Adam processes quotations, sales orders and takes care of your dispatches. Adam's voice on the end of the phone is always friendly and helpful.

In his spare time Adam enjoys snowboarding on the slopes of France.
