 Ultraframe R&D Graduates with Andrew Thomson, Design & Development Director

Craig Smith graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2007 with a Masters Degree in Product Design Engineering and won an Award prize for his 5th year project from the Royal Society of Arts, Manufacturers & Commerce in early 2007. Craig commented: “I decided to join Ultraframe as the company showed great enthusiasm towards investing in Research & Development, as well as being keen to develop new ideas from a fresh perspective. I'm really pleased to be part of the new intake of graduates at Ultraframe and look forward to gaining valuable experience here.”

Margaret Vass joined Ultraframe following her graduation from the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Arts, where she studied for 5 years and achieved a Masters in Product Design Engineering. On her appointment Margaret said: “This is my first role following my graduation and I was attracted to Ultraframe’s commitment to innovation and project work.”

Graham Beveridge, 22, is the third new member of the R&D team. Straight from the University of Glasgow, he is a young Glaswegian graduate with a Masters degree in Product Design Engineering and relishes the opportunity to help shape the future of the conservatory industry, Graham commented: “This is a fantastic start to my career. Here in Clitheroe, Ultraframe has a long history of innovation and its combination of product design, engineering and manufacturing allows us to push the boundaries of creativity and remain at the forefront of the industry.”

So, it seems that at Ultraframe, innovation and creativity are still the order of the day – the values that made this company are still held in the highest regard and the recent investment into the already strong R&D team heralds exciting times ahead for users of Ultraframe products.
