“It’s always good to talk to someone who knows exactly what you need and thats where Acorn North East excels”

Stewart Gordon

Given my long experience and training in linear motion systems, together with my general background in Mechanical Engineering, I am able to provide manufacturer level technical advice and support on a wide range of linear motion products. Whilst at THK I received extensive technical training, including advanced residential technical training courses, so I have a particular expertise with THK products.

As a result of my experience and training, together with the wide range of linear products available from Acorn, I am able to advise on the optimum selection of products for a wide range of potential applications. I am more than willing to meet to discuss any linear motion application, whether this is for an actuator (either positioning or push rod type), linear motion guide, ball screw, roller screw, ball spline or linear bush.

The commercial aspects of product selection and supply are of ever increasing importance. I have a strong commercial background gained over 35+ years, working with a wide variety of organisations; from individuals to large commercial concerns and national governments. I can combine this with my technical experience to offer solutions that are both technically proficient and commercially effective.
