29 June 2022 | Ep.71 – a lifetime in welding

In this episode of Stirring the Pot our General Manager Welding Centre, Michail Karpenko chats with our Senior Welding Engineer, Alan McClintock.

Alan is a well respected person in our industry and has made many significant contributions over his career.

His expertise in consulting for welding processes, weldability and quality management – including codes and standards for structural, transport, marine and pressure applications have no doubt informed many projects, businesses, and people.

In celebration of his mahi (work), please join us as Alan recalls his career pathway, experiences he has had in welding both in Aotearoa and around the world, as well as how he came to work at HERA.
