Gary Teague, owner and Director of Gemini Technology Ltd.
Design and manufacture of health physics, dosimetry and radiochemistry equipment.
May 1994. I joined in 1998 as a young Mechanical Design Engineer.
A multi-ring collimator for irradiators. Gemini was born out of J&P (Pinks) which was already making radiation protection equipment.
An X-Ray Irradiator system.
The design of this X-Ray Irradiator removes the requirement for CsCl (high activity Cs-137), with the added benefit of easy to use software that automatically controls the current to suit the instrument under test.
Yes, it's "Flexibility is our strength".
It would have to be Eastbourne in 2015 – we all had such a laugh that year. The 2017 shielding course was also very memorable, with a great atmosphere.
This must be our heatproof coffee flask; they disappear so quickly!
Seeing the people and meeting old and new friends in a relaxed atmosphere. I especially enjoy the annual dinners.
Myself and fellow directors Tony Bates (founder) and Matt Bates, who is Tony's son.
I was told by several senior members that I should get free entry to annual dinners for my dancing...and I once threw a naan bread at a popular AOrg member during a boozy night, after he insulted my choice of clothes.
I took the team go-karting in December, as a fun alternative to a Christmas meal. We had a few drop out last minute, so we drafted in a few friends of the team. These two ringers finished first and second, I later found out they used to go every week!
It's nice to be part of something and SRP is well-respected in our industry.
We have been very fortunate to not be hugely affected, other than business being quieter and meetings taking place on Zoom and Teams, rather than face to face. We have had to furlough two office staff and maintain social distancing in the factory.
BBS UK. My daughter has a rare genetic condition, Bardet-Biedl Syndrome, and this charity provides vital support in caring for patients and finding a cure.
Which one benefit would improve your experience as an AOrg?
