Jonathon joined Calix in March 2014 as a Graduate Process Engineer. Working as a part of the production team his main duties were around operation of the CFC15000, Calix’s “Catalytic Flash Calciner”, and operation of the ACTI-Mag hydration plant. Through these duties he developed a good understanding of Calix’s products and processes.
In July 2017, Jonathon became a Production Manager. He manages production and logistics activities out of the Bacchus Marsh site and handles all of the company’s exports. Jonathon holds a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering from the University of Melbourne. His father and grandfather on his mother’s side were chemical engineers, so he felt it was is fate to follow the same path. Calix appealed to him as during his studies he had developed an interest in mineral processing while spending two summers at a tin mine in Tasmania as a Metallurgical Vacation Student.
When not working Jonathon enjoys multi-day hikes with friends, drinking red wine and playing squash and in a competitive dodgeball league.
