Life at Prodieco
Cristian Iancu – Metrology & Quality
Before I arrived in Prodieco I was a Manufacturing Technician and then got a Mechanical Engineering Diploma & a Masters in Advanced Fabrication Technologies in Romania where I hail from. I started early 2016 in the manufacturing Prep section in Prodieco and after a few months, an opportunity to grow and evolve in the company arose, and I integrated the Metrology team.
My daily role consists of measuring the different tools our factory produces with automated or manual CMM machines, address technical manufacturing challenges based on the parts and work hand in hand with all the different departments to solve them and reach optimum quality for the customers.
The thing I like most about Prodieco is the good atmosphere and camaraderie between teams. Everyone is happy to help and collaborate on projects and there’s open communication throughout the company. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking and nature walks around Ireland, cinema and travelling, with a preference for South America and Brazil.
David Flanagan – Director
I started working in Prodieco in 1999, assembling tools, then became a CNC machinist, followed by managing production, doing sales, managing sales areas and today I am one of the Directors of Prodieco, quite the evolution!
As one of the Sales Directors, I supervise day-today sales results, sales activity, customer visits, manages some global accounts of big pharmaceutical companies but I also manage direct markets such as Malta, Israel and Indonesia. Alongside all this, I continuously look into new products, potential customers and growth strategy for the future of the company.
Blister tooling was a small part of Prodieco’s trade at the beginning but thanks to our employees’ “cando” attitude, precision engineering and hard work we are now one of the global leaders in blister tooling for the pharmaceutical industry. Our teams’ passion, dedication and progression is what we strive for and make sure to offer opportunities of growth for all staff members.
When I’m not working on growing our business, I enjoy gardening, spending time with my family, fitness, and believe it or not: travelling; despite being often on the road to meet customers.
Kevin Beattie – Senior CNC Machinist
I started in Prodieco 7 years ago and am a Senior CNC machinist. I’m a trained tool maker and winner of an all-Ireland Milling Competition a few years ago. My day-to-day job consists of operating different CNC machines, training new comers on the ins and outs of the different machines and monitoring different projects.
Prodieco is a busy company with a good work rhythm, and I enjoy working in an interesting sector like pharmaceutical engineering. There’s a great team atmosphere here and we have a good balance of work and banter among colleagues.
Outside of work, my passion is sports and I enjoy watching, playing and discussing all types of sports, with a preference for football.
Neil Bailey – Senior Design Engineer
I have been working in Prodieco 24 years and am now a senior design engineer. I work on the design of the change parts and have worked on most of the machine types over the years. I would also interact with other designers and other departments within the company in all aspects of design. As designers, we get to interact with customers to fully achieve their tooling needs.
My engineering teacher in secondary school had previously worked as a tool maker in Prodieco and suggested that I should inquire about also doing an apprentice in Prodieco. I started as a toolmaker and moved into design, so I guess I should thank my teacher, Mr Nugent, for steering me on the right path!
I enjoy the work and also like a challenge but I would have to say that most of all, it’s the people make me stay. Prodieco has excellent people within it and they also became great friends. There are incredibly skilled engineers in Prodieco that you can learn a lot from. Always keep an open mind as we are all learning every day. Respect your colleges and they will respect you and never be afraid to ask for advice or help as in my experience Prodieco employees are always happy to help.
It is fantastic that we have dedicated HR staff that looks after the well-being of the workforce which is very important. Happy staff will give you great work in a great environment.
Outside of work my interests would mainly be sports and the arts. I’m a massive sports fan in general but mainly GAA. I adore music: listening, playing, going to concerts whatever it is, if it involves music I’m there.
