It’s a great pleasure to welcome our new Cases & Enclosures Technical Product Specialist, Patrick Bennett.
Prior to joining us, Patrick spent 17 years being a Photographer and taking on jobs such as weddings, portraits, and even snapping the odd celebrity, including Princess Anne, Michael Schumacher, Ronaldo and various bands, just to name a few. Being a self-employed photographer, Patrick had experience of using various cases, including Flight Cases and protective cases (identical to our Hurricane Cases), as well as having an understanding of different applications these cases can be used for in his previous line of work. With this in mind, we think Patrick will be able to take Cases & Enclosures into a market where we are looking to grow as a business.
Before being a Photographer, Patrick was at Mercedes-Benz as part of their Customer Service Department. The skills Patrick used in this job role is exactly what we strive for at our company, excellent customer service and maintaining happy customers.
Other than Photography, Patrick has a very keen interest in music and also plays in various bands. We’re sure he will be a success at the company and Patrick is ready to ‘rock & roll’ as our Cases & Enclosures Technical Product Specialist.

We recently said goodbye to a long-serving employee of The Allendale Group, Andrew Brand, as he becomes our first retired employee. Andrew has been part of the team as our Machine-DRO Technical Product Specialist for 7 years and will be greatly missed by our team. Andrew was very well liked by all staff and customers alike, and his wealth of Engineering experience helped the Machine DRO range to become the success it is today.
Andrew’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for him and we hope he enjoys his retirement, as well as some retirement gifts from the company. Andrew is planning to write a book and work on restoring a dolls house during in retirement – so we may well hear from him as a customer in the future!
