Happy Retirement Phil Roper
22 December 2017 By Robert Godley
On 22nd December 2017, CCPI Europe sadly said “goodbye” to a well-respected and long serving member of staff, Phil Roper, our Deputy Head of Laboratory.
Phil has been part of the laboratory team for 10 rewarding years at CCPI Europe, initially starting as a part time laboratory administrator. Due to his background and previous scientific training, he soon progressed into his position as Deputy Head of the CCPI Europe Ltd UKAS accredited (No. 0600) calibration laboratory.
During his time at CCPI, Phil has been part of the team that has increased the laboratory’s scope of measurement while still reducing the uncertainties of measurement. He was part of the company move to its new and current premises and has played a key role in the high-performance level and continuous development of the CCPI Europe UKAS accredited (No. 0600) thermal calibration laboratory.
Due to Philip’s commitment and skill level, he will be leaving the laboratory in a very strong position and will be sadly missed by all.
Although we’re sad to see Phil go, all the staff would like to wish him the best in his retirement.
However, with Phil retiring, a position needed filling in the Laboratory and who better to take over P. Ropers’ position than another P. Roper…
Phil’s son, Paul Roper, whom has recently passed his BSc (hon) degree, supported by CCPI Europe, will be taking over the role.
Paul has worked for CCPI for many years helping in the software and systems development as part of the IT department. We can’t think of anyone better to take over his dad’s role.
Paul’s background in IT and software development will help the calibration laboratory continue to expand and progress.
Congratulations to Paul on the new role and for passing your degree, plus thanks and best wishes to Phil during his retirement.
