To those of you who have gotten to know Craig over the last fifteen years, it’s the end of an era. Friday the 24th of December is Craig’s last day at Taipan.

As head of Taipan’s R&D department, Craig has lived through three name changes, three branch openings, four branch relocations, five office changes and has built Taipan’s product range from a scrappy hotchpotch array of mediocre fittings to a high quality, fully matched hydraulic hose system.

He has walked more kilometres than migrating wildebeest in search of the best manufacturers and demanded the world’s top brands of testing machinery. 

Craig even thought of the name of our own brand and that’s impressive.

Thanks heaps Craig, everyone at Taipan wishes you all the very best in whatever you choose to do in the next fifteen and beyond.
