That Engineering Chat Podcast with MD Peter Lappin

Relec Electronics’ Managing Director – Peter Lappin was the guest earlier this month on ‘That Engineering Chat’ Podcast, hosted by Chatty Hatter’s Nicole & Caroline. This podcast episode looks at how Peter’s early days as an engineer in the Royal Air Force, has helped navigate Relec Electronics through the pandemic challenges many businesses are currently facing.

With many businesses still feeling the sting of the Coronavirus pandemic, Relec Electronics has been fortunate to stay open throughout lockdown, with no staff furloughs and a safe office space – all fully Covid-19 compliant.

Chatting with Relec’s MD Peter Lappin, The Engineering Podcast team asked how Peter was able to sustain a successful business during the worldwide pandemic. Peter revealed that it had not been plain-sailing for Relec and its staff, but it was the life skills and personal discipline taught in the Royal Air Force that helped navigate the business through these strange and challenging times.

Lockdown has forced new challenges on many businesses worldwide. Relec, in collaboration with their suppliers, has focused on maintaining excellent lead-times, and managing stock for their client’s orders. Relec has always cared about the details, and aim to provide the best service and quality of goods from its range of international manufacturers.
