Andy Left
Tool-room Supervisor

Overview: Andy Left joined the Assay Office in 1987 through an apprenticeship scheme which gave him experience of several departments, including the Tool-Room. He was initially employed in the Hallmarking department, but moved to the Tool-Room because of its expansion. In 1996 when the Assay Office began making its own punches, Andy developed the department further, modernising and improving punch-cutting and introducing lasers.
