Nigel and his business partner in Junipa Holdings, Patrice Bourgois, bought Aurora in June 2004. Nigel and Patrice originally worked together in the auto industry and between them have extensive experience of working in World Class Manufacturing.
In Aurora, Junipa saw an ideal opportunity to acquire a business with potential that required financial and management investment to take it to the next stage of its development.
Nigel is married to Julie (hence Ju Ni Pa). They met when they were both on the same degree course at Liverpool. Outside of work Nigel races a classic Moto Guzzi and shares a passion for Scuba diving with Julie, although these days it tends to be limited to holidays in warm water.
