Installation Gaffer & Dolly-Grip
No matter what it is Derek will make it fit-perfectly. Pass that club hammer! Who you calling a dolly?
John started on the buses (as an apprentice at the Eastern National Works, Northampton) – where he discovered what seat durability really means. At Aston Martin Lagonda he honed his skills as a vehicle trimmer then reached the pinnacle of his career when he joined Atlantechs and showed us what quality really is; and how to recognize, and achieve it.

WHERE WE WORK
Our factory is located in no ordinary industrial complex, but one with a history dating back to the Napoleonic Wars, when Lord Wellington (of boot fame) decided that he needed a depot and arsenal (not the mob at Highbury) that was as far from the coast as possible to make sure an enemy had a long march to get to it, yet could get supplies easily to any part of the country in support of a defensive army or service a regiment in the field via any port in the nation. What better location (as most of the biggest logistics companies in Europe have discovered in recent times) than mid-Northants. Wellington’s depot at Weedon was served by main-line railways, canals and roads. In fact some of our workshops still have the rail lines set in the cobblestone floor. (Talk about the train running through the middle of the house). It’s not always easy operating inside and around listed buildings, but it is always interesting, and we’re proud to be part of the heritage associated with the site’s engineering and innovation legacy. The Weedon Garrison or Royal Ordnance Depot, to give its proper title, was a completely self contained arsenal with guns and ammunition made and stored on-site. A couple of pavilions, unfortunately no longer standing, were included to house the Royal Family in the event of invasion. There was even an adjacent walnut forest as a source of timber for the rifle stocks fashioned in the on-site workshops. Come in and have a look around when you drop-off or collect your vehicle or finished parts. You’ll always be welcomed by our friendly and helpful team members. (Unless it’s tea-time when they’re more likely to bite your ankles in the rush to beat you to the best cups!)
