Steve began his journey within the engineering industry as an apprentice at Paxman Diesels (now MAN B&W Diesel Ltd) to train to become an Engine Fitter / Tester. Upon completion of his apprenticeship he began working within the motor vehicle trade and in 1985 took an opportunity to return to the large engine and governor overhaul business at EGS.
In 1999, as one of our most experienced staff members, having worked in a number of roles across the company including Test Engineer and Service Engineer, Steve was promoted to Service Manager. With advancements in technology and the gradual progression of the business towards electronic governors and control systems, Steve attended a number of Woodard training courses on digital controls and now within his role as Service Manager, is also responsible for the planning of major retrofit projects.
Steve enjoys the variation and challenges presented within his role in that no two retrofit projects are the same. Even after 27 years of service and seeming to know the business and products inside out, he is still learning as new challenges present themselves.
