Meet Lawrence Wretham: Our New Hire Proposals Engineer

Lawrence Wretham, Proposals Engineer

 

Lawrence Wretham has recently joined WES as a Proposals Engineer. Lawrence will be assisting Les Bunce in the Hire division. We asked Lawrence a few questions to find out more about him!

Can you talk to us about your role?

My role is to assist customers with their requirements for hired dosing systems. I will visit site, measure up and try to find the best solution for their dosing needs.  I will send a comprehensive, itemised proposal and will recommend a full solution built around the customer’s choice of chemical.

What has it been like working for WES so far?

Genuinely interesting. I’m really impressed that we have such a wealth of knowledge here and so many time-served experienced people. Our ability to manufacture is also remarkable as it combines several disciplines and processes so well. I’m constantly learning.

Tell us about your career path?

I come from a construction industry background and have been in equipment hire for a long time. I was a branch manager for a major equipment hire company for several years. When I was at school,  my first Saturday job was with compressors and air tools. I did a brief stint as an estate agent in the early 1990’s, but I’m OK now.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I have quite a few hobbies!  I am a keen cyclist and am always restoring at least one old bike.

I ride a unicycle (I used to commute on it) I am learning to weld. I fix old computers and laptops. I love to visit historic places and have been to almost all the English Heritage castles in Southern England. I listen to lots of music from classical to rock, metal, rap and world music and love live music events.
