Matthew – Fixture and Tool Designer

Matthew is a manufacturing engineer at JJ Churchill who has progressed from apprenticeship and now designs tooling and fixturing for manufacturing, working closely with the tool room supervisors and engineers who oversee their manufacture.

He works on computers using CAD to design drawings that the tool room manufactures. Matthew mainly works independently but as part of a team of engineers, and visits suppliers off-site too. He particularly enjoys problem-solving and works predominantly in aerospace, but also in the automotive, defence and nuclear industries.
