Lee ColegateTechnical Director
How long have you worked at Advanced Handling? I worked at Advanced Handling for 10 years, had a little break, then returned for more and have been back here for just over 18 months.

What’s your favourite part of the job? Coming up with solutions for the variety of challenges our customers come to us with.
What did you want to be when you were a child? A fireman, then a pilot and then when reality kicked in, an engineer like my Dad.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I am currently building an extension to my house but when I’m not doing that or at work, I enjoy going to the gym.
Lee’s random fact: Although there isn’t much that is of interest, I have dislocated my shoulder more times than I care to remember and hence got called Mel Gibson for a while.
