McDonald Engineers employee, Graham Smyth, has picked up the prestigious Hammerman Award for the impact his engineering expertise has made in launching the company’s STEELflow stainless steel unvented cylinder. Presented by the Incorporation of Hammermen of Glasgow, which was established in the 16th century, the award recognises the work of young engineers who have led projects with outstanding results within their companies. Graham has overseen the design and installation of the STEELflow manufacturing process to ensure the product meets the high quality standards McDonald Engineers are renowned for with their copper cylinders Graham picked up his award at the Scottish Engineering Awards Ceremony held in Glasgow last week where he was supported by McDonald Engineers, Managing Director, Bill Stewart. Bill commented, “The project has been very successful however not without its challenges with new equipment, new supplies and new fabrication processes as well as additional training for our workforce. However Graham has dealt with every issue with all the composure of an experienced engineer and we are delighted his work has been recognised by the Incorporation of Hammermen.” He continued, “Graham’s achievement is made all the more special by the fact that the award is normally dominated by employees from some of the biggest names in engineering, including Rolls Royce and the Weir Group. It just goes to show that smaller companies like ourselves can achieve great things through innovative approaches and a dedicated team.” Award winner Graham added, “It’s a great honour to receive the Hammerman award, however I see it more as recognition of the entire team’s work and I would like to thank them for their support and invaluable expertise throughout the project.
