Jim Collins - Senior Engineer
Jim is a highly experienced engineer with skills developed at Pye, Philips Consumer Communications, and Cambridge-based design consultancies. With extensive knowledge of mechanical systems, medical devices, consumer goods, injection mouldings, and tool design, Jim has been involved in the development of many novel engineering systems, and is an inventor on several patents.
For eighteen years prior to joining Coalesce, he has worked on a range of drug delivery devices, for global pharmaceutical companies. For Roche, he formed part of a team that developed a family of devices in the diabetes pump therapy arena, receiving named recognition on a Red Dot award. For GSK, he was involved in many device projects, test and development rigs, and technology investigations. In addition, he has led, or been part of, teams on various projects from the concept stage through to production in both the medical and consumer sectors.
Away from the office, Jim can be found on Saturday mornings on the golf course, and when not tinkering in his workshop, or on his Harley, he carries out general babysitting duties with his Grandson.
