Welcome - who am I??
My name is Andrew, although many people prefer to call me Andy.
Before taking up semi-retirement following the death of my mum in September 2002, I worked as a Project Manager for BancTec

BancTec Ltd was part of a major US based company (BancTec Inc)
based in Dallas,Texas and whilst working I was involved with major installations in UK, Ireland, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Malta, Hungary, France, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Jordan.
