Bournemouth born Nick Cary joined SMC in late 2021 as a Sales Manager. Part of a close-knit team of five and with a desire to achieve, it’s perhaps no surprise that Nick’s passion outside of SMC is sports coaching – having obtained BASI qualifications in skiing, ski instructing and FA football coaching.
This love for mentoring and coaching is what attracted him to a role in sales, as he is just as passionate about guiding and supporting his clients through the whole project process at SMC; understanding and mapping out their needs and then working with our design team to ensure that projects are delivered to specification and on time.
Recent SMC Project: Vehicular CCTV Masts
One such project for Nick was to develop internal masts with CCTV capabilities for a fleet of vehicles after progress on the project had stalled between the client and another manufacturer.
It was Nick’s first project at SMC, so is one he’s especially proud of. He was there every step of the way, from getting the technical drawings finalised and the parts ordered through procurement, to getting the perfect balance between the client’s ideal retracted and extended antenna heights.
Some of the unique aspects of this particular project is that all internal cables were required to be housed inside the mast. The mast also had to be positioned inside the vehicle and required having the stack recessed in the vehicle roof.
Whilst all this provided the designers with a challenge, the project paid off as the end result is a specialist mast that can be used in any vehicle for any company that requires CCTV in secure and rapid response situations. In fact, such is the versatility of application of the antenna, Nick is now hoping to apply the same technology for a new project for internal cable masts for sports lighting towers.
Speaking about what he enjoys most about working at SMC, Nick says it’s the people:
‘I work with a great team of friendly and knowledgeable experts across all areas of the business. They are down to earth and always willing to pitch in and help.’’
