Lance Hindmarsh used the lack of business around during the recession as inspiration to form a business of his own: Hindmarsh Engineering Services, and he hasn’t looked back since!
Hindmarsh Engineering Services: Metal skills sparks business
Thursday, 25 February 2010
Lance Hindmarsh knows his way around a piece of metal.
“I’ve been a fitter and turner for 20 or 30-odd years,” Lance said.
“I was contracted to Top Taste Bakeries, they used to ring me for equipment maintenance and repairs.
“But when the recession really started to hit I lost the contract, and a lot of companies were the same, so basically I was at home and decided I would keep it (my services) going … and keep it local.
“Even as a kid I repaired go-karts and motorbikes and, living on a farm, basically you did it all yourself. So I guess I just had a knack for it (metal work and machinery repairs) from when I was little and I was always going to go that way.”
