Valve User is delighted to report that industry stalwart, Geoff Newman, recently celebrated 40 years of continual service with Crosby / Tyco on 1st May 2007. To mark the occasion, Geoff was presented with a long service certificate at a ceremony at the companyís base in Market Harborough, UK. Geoff is the longest serving Crosby employee, having joined the company in 1967 in the Wembley sales office, before relocating to Market Harborough in January 1975. Later Geoff became the companyís Engineering Manager and has served on many of the national and international standards committees such as BSI/ISO/CEN, and is extremely well liked and respected for his work with all these groups. During the last 14 years Geoff has been focused on the Power Industry and in particular working with the European boiler manufacturers. Geoff has also been heavily involved in the BVAA for many years, actively participating in many of the Associationís technical committees, and chairing the BVAA Valve Working Group.
