MICC employee Shaun McIntosh qualifies for 2019 Bowls World Championship

Shaun McIntosh MICC

We are proud and delighted to announce that Shaun McIntosh has qualified for the 2019 Bowls World Championship!

Shaun is sponsored  by MICC and is one of our employees based in our Washington, Tyne & Wear, Mineral Insulated Cable factory HQ. After many years of hard work and great National success he has been able to qualify for the World Championships via becoming a member of the Professional Bowls Association (PBA).

We spoke to Shaun about his journey to the top of his sport and here’s what he had to say;

I had my first game of bowls when I was seven years old, I used to go along and watch my father regularly played to a high standard – I think this is where my love of the game came from.

After many hard years of practice I started to win junior event titles regularly, this caught the eye of the selection committee for the full men’s team at my local club Hebburn Bowls Association, at the age of 15 I won the men’s singles championship becoming the youngest in the clubs history to do so, after this win I received my first Durham County cap, I remained in the team for that season which ended with us being National Title Champions – since then I have went on to win four English Titles in total.

At the age of 18 I had my first England Under 25’s trial, on this occasion I did not make the team.

2019 has been my biggest season yet, securing sponsorship from MICC Ltd has given me the platform to join the Professional Bowls Association (PBA) which gave me the opportunity to qualify for the 2019 World Championships, after eleven hours on the green myself and my pairs partner qualified for the 2019 World Championships which will take place at Potters Hotel Norfolk in early 2019 – which is also a live televised event.

I look forward to 2019 and hope to achieve all my title goals”

We all wish Shaun the best of luck. For more details on the event please visit;

Daniel’s Mini Great North Run

Can you give little for a very good cause?

Please help Daniel raise money for Isabella and people like her with Williams Syndrome via his Mini Great North Run! https://zurl.co/KnQ8

Here is Daniel explaining why this is important to him in his own words.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 

My name is Daniel, I am 5 years old and I am going to be running with my mammy (if she can keep up) in this year’s Mini Great North Run on the 8th September.

I am raising money and awareness for the Williams Syndrome Foundation UK.

Williams Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder  that occurs randomly
and affects around one in 18,000 people in the UK. It is non-hereditary
and causes distinctive facial characteristics and a wide range of learning difficulties. Infants often have delayed development and can develop physical and mental health problems, including anxiety and depression in  later life. All WS people tend to be talkative and excessively friendly towards adults.

My beautiful cousin Isabella will be 8 this October. Almost 3 years ago, in December 2015, she was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome.

Since then, my very brave Auntie Emma and Uncle Philip have been doing lots to raise awareness of William’s Syndrome and raising money for the Foundation, who have got them through some very difficult times in the last 3 years.

Now it’s my turn to help, I would love it and would be very grateful if you could donate as little or as much as you can to help raise funds for WSF UK as they are a charity very very close to our family’s heart.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Britain Stronger In Europe

We were happy to welcome Deputy Director Lucy Thomas yesterday of the Britian Stronger In organisation and her team along with a few members of the local press. They partook in a guided tour around our facilities and had a crash course in Mineral Insulated cable and its many applications in temperature measurement, trace heating and fire proof wiring.

A first for Lucy Thomas and her team, they were completely unaware of the process of Mineral Insulated cable, and its many applications. Once the tour was concluded they were highly interested in our views of the European Union and the potential of a referrendum.

As a strong exporter of all three products, 55% of our turnover last year was generated through exports to Europe. As an employer of 90+ staff in our UK Headquarters in Washington we view this issue as of high importance, as we export heavily to the European Union we endeavour the best decision to be made that will support our business and moe importantly our employees.

We will be wating with anticipation for the future to unfold and hope for the best result.

Sunderland manufacturer gains from city’s Chinese friendship agreement

Thermal Resources Management (TRM) Group has setup a Shanghai-based joint venture with its sister company MICC, to build its supply chain in China.

The Chinese operation includes a manufacturing plant in Hefei, where it is seeking local suppliers to reduce the costs of exporting components from the UK. The specialist business manufactures products used in the oil and gas, automotive, aviation and electronics industries.

TRM is now strengthening its links with China after welcoming a student who has joined the company on placement through the Sunderland-Harbin friendship agreement.

Student Zuer Qi has been tasked with researching the suppliers and providing feedback to TRM. The 19-year-old comes from the Chinese city of Harbin and is currently in the UK studying accounting and finance at Manchester University.

TRM director Nick Morton said: “We have only been manufacturing in China in serious quantities since the start of the year and we have 60 to 70 staff there.”

“The factory makes mineral insulated cables – specialist heating cables – some of which we will use. But because it’s a joint venture, we are giving them technical assistance to address the substantial market in China and elsewhere in Asia.”

The plant requires specialist materials and Zuer’s knowledge is being put to good use researching potential suppliers in China.

Nick Morton said: “We are already finding out about the technical quality by asking them to send samples which will go through our technical approval process. But Zuer’s perspective of how these companies respond and how they are to deal with will be interesting.”

The project is giving Zuer an opportunity to work hands-on for TRM and gain an insight into how the growing company operates.

She said: “It’s good to get first-hand experience of work while you are an undergraduate and to get to know a company well through a real-life project.

Sunderland and Harbin signed up to a friendship agreement in 2009 to co-operate for the benefit of both cities. Harbin, located in North East China, is the country’s tenth largest city.

Councillor Harry Trueman, deputy leader of Sunderland City Council, said: “It’s great to see our friendship agreement with Harbin in action and the benefits it’s bringing both for TRM and for Zuer. This is the perfect example of how an agreement like this should work in practice.”
