Jonathan Dean

Jonathan Dean

Founder and Managing Director, Jonathan has a deep knowledge of metal surface improvement and the precision finishing of engineered parts. He set up Finishing Techniques over 35 years ago and in that time has solved metal finishing problems for manufacturers of simple components through to the highly complex precision parts demanded in aerospace and by F1 teams.

Having established a relationship with OTEC Präzisionsfinish in the 1990’s as Finishing Techniques in the UK, a highlight for Jonathan was forming Otec Inc USA and being acting CEO before handing it on.

Jonathan thrives on being able to solve the precision finishing needs of customers and is very much a hands-on MD. Apt then, that keeping out of the rough is a key objective in his main hobby too, being a keen player of golf.

Richard Ainsworth

With 27 years’ experience in the engineering industry, Richard’s enthusiasm for problem solving is as keen today as when he began with the award of a B Eng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Liverpool.

Richard has helped solve metal finishing problems and win contracts from companies such as Delphi Diesel Systems, Precious Project, Royal Mint, Goodrich (Bandung) and more. He is very active in pioneering work on the surface polishing of metals in additive manufacturing.

A golf player, school governor and with keen interests in motorcycling and old cars, Richard is just as pro-active when he can tear himself away from work.

Jason Hornby

Jason Hornby

Training to be a tool maker, Jason joined the company from school and he has quickly achieved City & Guilds Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Performing Manufacturing Operations.

From the start Jason has made a significant contribution to the company in the sub-contract department, operating the Otec finishing machines and helping customers find the optimum process – machine, media, time – for their finishing needs.

Seeing the transformation of surface finish of the metal parts from the before to after state really enthuses Jason – making him keen to find new processes as part of his training.

Jason is a football enthusiast.
