An employee affectionately known as ‘the oracle’ is celebrating 41 years of service.
Dave Burns has been working in the technical department at Cotswold for 41 years, helping the specialist hardware manufacturer to deliver cutting edge engineering and product innovation to its customers.
Dave is part of a team at Cotswold that supplies high quality aluminium friction stays and hardware for numerous high-profile commercial projects across the globe, as well as hardware solutions, such as friction stays, to the trade.
“What I love about Cotswold is that the company is always thinking ahead. The research and development we are investing in at the moment is for powered products and automation, which represent the future for hardware and doors. Consumers want powered products that are concealed and we will be world leaders in this area.
“Going forward we will be opening windows and doors via our mobile phones and opening and locking buildings via an iPad. It’s exciting to think what my colleagues here will be working on in forty years. One thing I know is that whatever the customer is looking for, Cotswold will offer the solution.”
