Meet the Team

Clark Skates

Since starting STC in 2001 both of our boys have been through school and university and so Leah and I are officially 'empty nesters'!

In my spare time I play drums with 2 bands, one of which now has an official website and is on Sound Cloud, the other plays various pubs and occasional weddings.

My other hobby is biking, which we mainly do at night, off road, in all weather. Quite a challenge but great for the work-life balance!

I've loved working at STC as part of the team and continuing to see the company grow and thrive. In the 20 years since we started we have taken on and progressed 4 apprentices to become an integral part of the STC family.

Ian Myland

I am a founder member of STC and have been in the industry for about 30 years. As Account Manager I enjoy using my experience to help match client needs to their exact equipment and then maintaining a good relationship over many years.

In my spare time I play golf (badly, apparently).

Peter Ord

As the third founding member of STC and with 30 years in the weighing/CCTV industry, my role as Service Manager is to keep all my wonderful engineers busy and under control!

Outside of work I enjoy golf, motor sports, travel, and cycling as well as doing exactly what my wife, Helen, tells me to do.

Jo Hopking

I work for STC part-time as a member of the admin team which I greatly enjoy; it enables me to escape the house from my 2 boys!

In my spare time I am in charge of walking the dog and working towards beating my PB at the local parkrun.

Aaron Bailey

I joined STC as an apprentice engineer in 2010 and have enjoyed learning the trade with an experienced team. My main roles are setting up new equipment, responding to customer phone enquiries and general repairs….along with making the occasional cup of tea!

I like to think I am energetic – enjoying the odd game of football, climbing and taking any opportunity to try and improve my jumping stilt skills

Gary Foord

With over 30 years working in the weighing industry I have a vast knowledge of both retail and industrial equipment, and enjoy installing and servicing CCTV Systems.

I have 2 dogs and a family so am always busy, either keeping my son Harry amused or enjoying a social pint or two, or even playing a few sports!

Leah Skates

I have worked part time with STC since it was launched and deal mainly with Accounts.

I am married to Clark, the MD; we have just celebrated our 30 year Anniversary with a trip to Singapore and Bali. I also enjoy going to the gym, power plate and pilates. Before joining STC, I spent many years as an English teacher and have enjoyed teaching GCSE at a local secondary school.

Scott Mitchell

I've been with STC since the early days as a service engineer.

I've recently moved out to the country and am enjoying family life there. I am out walking most weekends, either along the coast or over the heathlands which are fantastic.


Helen Ord

I have worked part time with STC for the past 12 years and my responsibilities include looking after the administration of the service side of the business, and helping manage the company finances. 

In my spare time I enjoy cycling and pilates, and spending time with Peter and our grown-up children.

Harry Scott

I have been contributing to the team as an engineer since 2016. I like to spend as much of my free time as I can with my wife and twins, who are certainly a handful.

My hobbies include anything that involves some adrenaline. Motorcycles (on and off road) are a real passion of mine. I'm a keen track rider and love the speed!


Fiona Myland

I have worked part time with STC since it was launched and provide administration support.

Outside of work I am a trained sports therapist and enjoy keeping fit.

George Wesson

I joined in 2016 as an apprentice having recently finished college with a qualification in engineering.

In my spare time I enjoy tinkering with my bike and any other objects that I can find!
