Apprentice and Master.
From working at Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation at Fisherman's bend during the 2nd World War, to Can Plant Manager for SPC Ardmona, Jo's passion for engineering was still not met.
Circa 1989 he began the intricate designing and manufacturing of machines for the weaving of non-woven textiles - exporting them all around the world.
He considers the first 30 years of his working life as just his apprenticeship.
Jo rollerblades to maintain his fitness.
