Paul Wilson is Founder and Managing Director of EDM Zone Ltd, who has been solving problems in precision engineering for over 40 years.
Paul started his career as an apprentice at Parsons, eventually becoming a time served Toolmaker. His skills and dedication were recognised early, winning the Sir Claude Gibb memorial prize and Apprentice of the Year for four consecutive years. Before branching out on his own with EDM Zone, Paul had held roles as Operations Manager for a medical device manufacturer and Production Manager for a high precision tooling manufacturer, each helping to broaden his sector experience.
Paul has seen that same commitment he had to his own training extend into EDM Zone, winning Regional and National Manufacturing Apprenticeship Awards for the last 5 years for their own internal training schemes. This commitment has extended into STEM activity where he has dedicated thousands of hours with local schools, colleges, and universities.
Paul is still kept very busy and has further plans to scale-up EDM Zone to meet its full potential – whilst finding time to work with the NHS to conquer their “Unmet-Needs”.
