Due to decreased demand, mainly from the Ministry of Defence, for engine overhaul work we decided that we would refocus solely on governing equipment. Many of the engineers involved were retrained to develop their expertise on governing work and are still part of the EGS team today; their background in engine work gives them an enhanced understanding of the work to be carried out on governing equipment.
Our test engineer Ivor started conducting training courses.
In 2001 we appointed Karl who completed an NVQ Level 2 Performing Engineering Operations with modules including the maintenance of mechanical and electronic systems. Karl started in the overhaul department, and with his training moved to the service and retrofit department.
