ABERTAY Probus Club met in the Woodlands Hotel on Wednesday.
President Michael Beattie introduced guest speaker David Ashworth, supply manager at Dundee’s Michelin tyre factory. He gave a fascinating talk on the manufacture of tyres and the development of further units in the Americas, Eastern Europe and the Far East. Mr Beattie explained that Michelin in Dundee employs 800 staff and produces 20,000 tyres per day with a rejection rate of only 100 to 150 per day. The company has built its reputation on quality tyres and is recognised internationally with it’s staff training programme and great reduction of staff health issues.
Robert Heslip proposed thanks.
