Some changes at Pro Alloy!

A message from Wayne Clayden (Co founder and Director of Pro Alloy)...
Well as some of you may already know on 17 December 2013 I was diagnosed with cancer... Which was a bit of a shock to say the least at first but I am now fully prepared to fight like hell!
To enable me to concentrate on this "battle" I have decided to take some time out whilst I undergo some chemo therapy and whatever else I can lay my hands on!..
Business at Pro Alloy will of course carry on as usual - I am surrounded by some exceptional people who are fully capable of both running the show and pushing it forward ....
Alex Osborn - Co founder and director will continue to run the business and the sales department.
One of our longest standing employees Chris Hazell will now move from his position as workshop supervisor into the sales department, so will be on hand to deal with general sales enquiries on radiators, intercoolers etc and due to his extensive experience and understanding of all our product range is ideally place to chat technical issues and offer advice .. Chris has been with us almost from the start back in 2004 and is a true enthusiast in every sense of the word ...
He has built numerous bikes over the years and also his own AC Cobra Replica (which he still has stashed away somewhere) he also is part of the team who are currently re- building Donald Cambell's famous K7 jet powered boat.
Another big change is our very experienced welding and fabrication technician Jamie Branch has now stepped into Chris's position as workshop supervisor and co-ordinator. Jamie has been with us since 2007 and he is one of the fussiest and best organised people we have ever met, and has already made some significant improvements in the organisation and streamlining of the workshop. Jamie is also a very keen car enthusiast, and has owned a number of modified performance cars which he is constantly fettling  and his current ride is a Green Mk2 focus RS which is sporting most of our goodies, he is also a keen MX racer which keeps him busy!
As for me- who knows..., may squeeze in a few track days and generally loaf about like a semi retired person .... I certainly will be popping in and out a lot over the course of the next few months, not because I have to, I know it's in good hands but simply because I can't stay away from the place!
All the best
Wayne ...
