Engineering Manager – Ishida Europe

Guy Dix

Guy is an Engineering Manager for Ishida Europe, a Japanese owned global manufacturer of automation equipment for the food industry. He works between his local Poole office and the European headquarters in Birmingham, and travels extensively around the world visiting factories in remote places that are way off the tourist track. Guy is also on the steering committee of the Dorset Engineering Manufacturing Cluster that promotes the development of local SMEs in the manufacturing sector.

Guy started in schoolboy motocross and rode up to his early twenties, when getting married and starting a family, he paused the activity for 10 years. Starting riding again in his early thirties he took up Hare and Hound enduros and Evo motocross and still rides today. He’s never been a particularly quick rider but always had a passion for the sport.

With friends he has travelled the world attending GPs and particularly the Motocross Des Nations. Guy likes nothing more than a trip to a local race and then reviewing the action in the pub afterwards.
