Meet Will – a passionate Mechanical Design Engineer who has been an important part of our engineering team for nearly 5 years. Affectionately known as “Big Will”, he is no stranger when it comes to working hard and is always prepared to deal with challenges that come from working in a fast-paced environment.
“The best part of my job is getting to work on the projects that you like, enjoy and believe in. Working at Bis has given me the opportunity to design a lot of new, innovative products for the mining industry. We focus on building better solutions to cater to the market and customer requirements, rather than buying standard equipment and running it. Rexx was a standout project for me. Designing from a 3D model concept and then seeing it in operation at different sites – That is something that a lot of general engineers don’t get to do,” William said.
Will believes that to be successful, you need to take any opportunity that presents itself and with Bis, the possibilities are endless.
“My advice to anyone in similar roles or is thinking of getting into engineering, is to find a workplace where you enjoy what you are doing. Don’t be afraid of doing something different, pushing the boundaries with innovation and most importantly, find a workplace that has a strong culture of innovation,” Will said.
“It is a great and memorable moment when you see people using the equipment you have designed. ” Will said.
