About Ross Hartshorn

Ross joined Liniar as an apprentice toolmaker at the age of 17, learning his craft on-site in the HL Plastics toolroom as well as studying at Derby College.

On completion of his apprenticeship he was promoted to his current position of Toolroom Supervisor, a role that he has excelled in.

Ross’ function in the toolroom involves him supervising a team of 10 experienced staff. This includes delegating all of the toolroom workload and the day-to-day running of the division, ensuring that the production department is fully supported and contributing to efficient operations.

One of the major responsibilities of Ross and his team is to check tooling for tolerance and measurements and to correct any defects by refurbishing the equipment to maintain exceptional production standards.

Under his own initiative, Ross has also expanded his position to include design work on the extrusion tools. Using the knowledge that he has gained from day-to-day trials he has designed and implemented his own improvements to further increase productivity.

It’s safe to say that Ross’ contribution through his own enterprise is a major reason that scrap levels are kept at a minimum due to the high quality of the tools.

Ross is an outstanding individual, both professionally and personally. He brings a level of dedication to his role that is above and beyond the remit of his position.

As an incredibly hard worker, Ross has earned complete respect from his peers and in return has full respect for all of those around him.

His all-round effort is always 100% and his ability shines through in everything that he does.

In 2014, Ross was named ‘Apprentice of the Year’ by Derby College. The outstanding workbooks he created have since been adopted as the template for all future students on the course.
