Interview with BGA Chairman Graham Penning in Gear Technology.

Big thanks to our friends at Gear Technology Magazine who interviewed BGA Chairman Graham Penning on his life in the Gearing world.

“In 1973 I moved to Huddersfield after getting a job as a young engineer with David Brown Gear Industries thinking that, after two years, I will move on knowing everything about gears. Well here I am over forty-five years later, still learning something new about gears every week. So, while today I will have no problem introducing all the basics of gears, you will never know everything about gears. That is the joy of gears; they embrace so many technologies that there is always an opportunity to learn something new, and it will be inevitable that you will meet and work with many different engineering experts — most of whom don’t realise how skilled they are!”
