Newport Wafer Fab

Thomas Duggan is celebrated as one of the leading new talents of the UK industry.

Newport Wafer Fab congratulates Thomas Duggan for his outstanding success in being shortlisted in the Young Engineer of the Year category at the prestigious the 2017 TechWorks Awards.

Thomas’ rapid progression to become a valued core contributor to the Fab’s test team saw him recognised alongside representatives from the UK industry’s institutions including ARM, WMG and the University of Warwick.

Thomas started work at Newport in 2010 as an operator, and within four years his talent and commitment have seen him promoted to a lead operator and trainer role. His continued success in this role, and his further education and training resulted in Thomas’ progression to a process engineering position. Congratulating Thomas, Newport Wafer Fab managing director Dr Paul James, said "Thomas represents the many staff we have developed and supported. We firmly believe that promotion of this millennial generation is a key component of our very exciting future."
