Chris Mason - A&M’s bionic man with a titanium knee

Remember the bionic man? Steve Austin was a world-wide TV phenomenon in the late 70’s & early 80’s. Chris Mason is A&M’s our own version with his titanium knee (photo below after surgery).

Chris has been an Account Manager for seven years and is a former footballer for Halesowen and Stourbridge and non-league international for England.

His football exploits resulted in Chris requiring knee surgery and a new titanium knee two years ago. A&M precision engineer a wide range of metals including titanium, but all the credit goes to the NHS.

Chris started cycling a year ago to aid his recovery from the knee replacement surgery and got a new bike in 2017 as part of A&M’s cycle to work scheme.

He has now signed up to ride 150 miles in the Albion Foundation charity challenge from Swansea to the Hawthorns from Wednesday 4th - Saturday 7th April 2018.The Albion Foundation uses the power of football and WBA FC to provide sporting and educational opportunities to the most disadvantaged members of the local community.

A&M are located a quarter of a mile from the Hawthorns and are sponsoring the drinks for the challenge and Chris’s clothing.
