On Sunday, 9th January 2022, Andy Mazurkiewicz passed away peacefully at his home in Trawden, Lancashire with his family at his side.

VWM sales director Jason Varey pays his respects: “Our dear friend and colleague Andy – Maz to those who knew him well – started out with Wadkin Colne in the early 1970’s and was very well known and respected throughout the world for his imperious knowledge of CNC machining centres. After leaving Wadkin in the mid 1990’s and then working for another woodworking company for a short while, he joined us at VWM in 2001 becoming our technical sales manager.

 “Andy brought a vast amount of knowledge and business to VWM and for that we will be eternally grateful – it made us the business we are today. His legacy will live on with us. Maz finally took retirement in January 2021 and was very much looking forward to enjoying life with his family, but this was cruelly cut short.

“All of us at VWM would like to offer our sincere condolences to all of his family and he will be sadly missed by us all.”
