A Tribute to Barry Hawes

Plastics Industry Maintenance & Engineering professional Barry Hawes sadly passed away last week.

Barry was a highly regarded and respected engineer in the plastics industry. He started his career servicing power stations before jumping into plastics and mould manufacturing with Britax (now Koito). Barry had further experience with Stoneridge Pollak, Polytec Holden, PELS, before joining Synthotec in 2011.

Mark Lawson of LawsonKeys Ltd said:

“It will be a mighty blow to those who came to know him through work connections, who were trained and mentored by him, and by the many colleagues and ex-managers who continued to contact him when they needed a problem solving.

“A man who enjoyed local hobbies, travel, family time and was governed by his bible – the Screwfix directory. He left this land far, far too early.”
