Traditionally we introduce new staff but this time we thought we'd talk to somebody who'd been around a while to tell us what changes they'd seen at Adept.
Noelene first started working at Adept in 1999 at the age of 51 as an Assembly Controller.
"Adept was a lot smaller then - there were 46 employees and only one building"
*currently 100 employees and 5 buildings.
What other changes have you noticed?
"Technology mostly - computers replaced paper trails and there are lots more advanced robots in the factory now"
I hear you're going to retire shortly - what was it that you enjoyed most about your time at Adept.
"The people - I like that everyone is respectful and willing to help regardless of position - and that there's always something new to learn"
What will you do when you retire?
"Full-time grandmother / part-time golfer"
