Daniel Troop - Gardner Aerospace

Daniel Troop
Gardner Aerospace

My name is Daniel Troop and I am a Team Leader for an aerospace company in Derby called Gardner Aerospace. We are a Tier 1 supplier of aerospace manufactured detailed parts and assemblies for planes such as A350, A380, A320 Neo etc. Has annual sales in excess of $185m making it one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Is an international company with over 1400 employees: 650 in the UK, 310 in France, 355 in Poland and 89 in India. Has 12 aerospace approved manufacturing facilities: 5 in the UK, 4 in France, 2 in Poland and 1 in India (a total of over 56,000 m² of factory space) and representative offices in Syracuse – USA, and Toulouse – France. Exhibits all of the characteristics required of a strategic supplier by its customers and is one of the clear leaders in the consolidation of the overly fragmented aerospace detailed parts sector. Has an international and highly experienced management team. Is backed by highly supportive financial investors with experience of aerospace and manufacturing. Is customer and relationship focused, creative, flexible, and willing to listen, to learn and to change. Has a proven track record of organic and acquisitive growth.

I started as a router operator with an agency and within 3 months was taken on permanently as a team leader. I manage a team of 19-25 people on a day to day basis. Recently I have been a part of the environmental team for a few months and the company decided to send me on my NEBOSH Environmental Course. Although I would prefer to do my NEBOSH in health and safety I was not going to turn it down.

I was slightly worried about coming into a completely new world and thought I may struggle. The first day was really hard to take in as it was like a minefield however after speaking to the tutor he made things seem so easy with his revision sessions and firing questions throughout the week.

The second day flowed easy and started to build my confidence, when I have studied with other companies for other courses I have found myself relying on personal revision. Although I gave a good solid 3 hours revision a night Dave really ensured you was always on track with his teaching techniques. Although I feel I may have passed the examination I am not totally confident.

I have already expressed my feelings towards doing the NGC1, 2 and 3 and hope this will be sometime in the future.

I had one issue and that was the lunch time arrangements, although a cob van comes round at lunchtime, it would be good if food was provided as part for your course. Maybe I feel this as I have experienced this at virtually every other training facility, I just feel it gives that little more personal touch.


All in all I feel very happy about my time at RISK and would recommend to anyone for training.


Thank You

Daniel Troop
