London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. is pleased to announce the appointment of talented engraver Andréas Robert. Andréas studied engraving at the world-famous Liege School of Gunmaking under the tutelage of Pierre Dôme, whilst also furthering his experience working with jewellers to engrave their signet rings.
Andréas joins the Pensbury Place team to work full-time alongside the admired Rigby engravers and fellow Liege School of Gunmaking alumni, Geoffrey Lignon and Saija Koskialho.
Talking about his appointment, Andréas comments: “Joining John Rigby & Co. gives me the opportunity to work on the finest guns and rifles currently available, and to be a part of an old, historic British gun making company. The team is relatively young but has a wealth of experience. With my past schoolmates working there too, it’s a little like we have never left school, and a real privilege to work alongside them.”
Rigby’s managing director Marc Newton added: “I am delighted to welcome Andréas to the team and can’t wait to see his engraving take shape – I’m incredibly impressed with what I’ve seen so far! Our business is growing all the time and to take on another talented engraver is testament to our aim for long-term growth.”
