Ivan Feeney - Production Operative, Converters

 

Ivan left school in Bilston in the West Midlands in 1979 to join Wolverhampton Borough Council in their building works division. He was to stay here for six years until he moved to Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Co. in Wolverhampton as part of the production team, producing tyres for the automotive industry. Ivan was to stay with the company for 19 years.

In 2005 Ivan made the move to Reno De Medici in to the position of Production Operator working within one of their two production teams.  He worked a two shift system and trained to become a multi-skilled Production Operator.   In this role Ivan operated all production machinery including a Jagenberg Sheeter, re-winder, packing line and guillotine. He also supported the team in the converting of reels of cartonboard into palletised sheets ready to be sold and shipped to the customer’s specification.

When Warren purchased the assets of Reno De Medici UK's Wednesbury plant in February 2014 Ivan joined the newly formed Warren Converting facility in West Bromwich as a Production Operative, continuing in much the same role as the one held previously and adding to the strength of the Warren production team. 

Ivan lives in the town of Penn in Wolverhampton with his wife and two daughters. They share their home with their cat, Ronnie - named after Ronnie O’Sullivan. Ivan is keen on rock music and likes to go to gigs when time permits. He’s interested all sport, particularly football and darts.

    Violence in the home and child marriages have been a way of life for some families in Ghana and with the help of Action Aid change is happening. From the account we received in a letter through Action Aid from one woman who had experience of her own daughter being kidnapped-the people of Ghana are seeing that their situation can improve through the education of all. Although entirely coincidental, on International Women's Day-our article is well timed.
