Dave the pride of Priden

Dave Buttriss strikes GOLD to become a FASSI Certified Installer at Priden Engineering

Dave served his time as an apprentice plater welder with British Sugar. After working for British sugar he worked for Mike Smith Fabrication working on general fabrication until taking a job with GB Bodies in Wisbech getting involved with body building and crane fitting. Following the demise of GB Bodies Dave transferred to Priden Engineering with several of the ex GB staff where for the last sixteen years he has worked with FASSI cranes carrying out crane installs, service and repairs. His working with hydraulics is not confined to his daily work, as in his spare time he restores vintage Ransom crawler tractors and is currently working on a Ransom MG6 to use in ploughing matches.  

A Gold Certified Installer has an FSC-S and FSC-M/H supervised set-up certificate, an ALLMI operator’s certificate and an ALLMI thorough inspector’s certificate. Certified Installers are able to perform the supporting basics, including use of service laptop, FASSITEC for information and software, FSC component identification, IE742 installation wiring and MOL system. Certified Installers can also perform pre-delivery inspection and operator familiarisation using FASSI checklists.

The FASSI training academy is a structured training and coaching program leading to Bronze, Silver and Gold skills accreditation once the necessary skills have been demonstrated. It represents an investment in the independent crane installation, service & repair sector of which FASSI UK, through our authorised network, is the most vigorous supporter & promoter amongst the major manufacturers. There are 85 engineers enrolled in the FASSI training academy nationally.
