Joining us in December 2014 as our Maintenance Fitter, Darren is a real asset to our team at Cherry Hill Coolstores.
Born in Devonport, Darren is local to our district, growing up in the region, attending Reece High and gaining a trade as a Fitter and Machinest in the area.
“I did my apprenticeship at Simplot Australia but have had a few jobs since leaving school. I worked at Tas Belting Service and Supplies for four years, Wootton and Byrne Construction (construction and steel works) and I’ve worked on conveyor belts and as a forklift driver.”
Darren also held a position with DPM Engineering for a while and helped build the Devonport Aquatic Centre. Now he is our all-rounder, in charge of all maintenance on site, seeing to equipment, belts, bearings, fitting and forklift driving.
Darren is also a handy all-rounder on the cricket pitch and plays cricket with Brenden at Sassafras. He loves being outdoors and in his spare time (when not hitting people for six) Darren enjoys shooting, fishing and kayaking.
