DavyMarkham is about to enter one of the most exciting periods in its history. After many years of foreign ownership and a declining order book, a new era of increased high integrity design and manufacturing in the Nuclear and Defence sectors has begun. This is epitomised and substantiated through recent contracts with Sellafield, AWE, Magnox and Innovate UK.
In response to the increase in demand for high quality solutions, Dr Alan Thompson has been appointed Director of Quality. Alan's background includes manufacturing and in particular steel metallurgy and welding technology. These skills have been developed at Cranfield University where he completed his PhD, as a welding lead within Tata Steel and Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing where he was part of the team that helped set up the Nuclear AMRC.
Chief Executive, Bill Clark, commented "I am delighted to appoint Alan as Director of Quality within DavyMarkham and look forward to him playing a key role in strengthening skills, processes and capabilities for high quality manufacturing. Alan will not only positively impact the company but also help customers overcome technical challenges they are facing in design".
