Ben Kightley

Workshop Engineer

Best thing about working for R-Tech

It’s more than just a job. R-Tech is a happy, optimistic place where everyone’s driven focused on looking after customers.

My unique contribution

An electronics background and broad skills and experience mean I can do pretty much everything: technical work; demos; repairs; warehouse work.

Listens to...

Indie rock and Chill House

Loves to eat...

As a trained chef, and despite hating eggs, my speciality is Eggs Benedict – the secret is the Hollandaise sauce.

Favourite sport

I rowed for Worcester Rowing Club.

After hours…

Family time; cycling; motorbikes (I ride a Yamaha YZF1000 Thunderace and Kawasaki Ninja ZX9R)

Not many people know...

I’ve cooked professionally for Ollie Murs.

The welding project I’d most like to be involved with

Aston Martin’s Vulcan; we supplied a CNC table and I taught them how to use it.

Business philosophy...

Look after your customers.

Top tip for R-Tech customers

Know your process and how to match it to the welding job.

Why buy from us?
