During January and February, we have welcomed three new service engineers to the team, Ian Sherwood, Ubay Sohail and Mark Mills.
Ian was the first to joined us on Monday 7th January, having spent the last 10 years working for a banknote and passport manufacturer. Completing his Advanced Engineering Apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering with the company, Ian went on to become one of their mechanical maintenance engineers.
With a strong mechanical engineering background, Ian decided he wanted a change of scenery and industry, commenting:
“I have always been interested in critical power and would like to develop my electrical skills and qualifications, P & I seemed to be a good fit to allow me to achieve this. I have always worked at one site and this role allows me to travel, also the company being a family business, attracted me to the role.
So far, everyone at the company has been friendly and welcoming. I am enjoying the job and I look forward to progressing within the company and adding to my skill set. Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome!”
Ubay was the next to join us on Monday 21st January. Having completed a Masters in Marine Engineering, Ubay has spent the last 4 years in the marine industry, working for both a multinational defence, security, and aerospace company and a maritime charity.
“Having worked for a large organisation and a charity, I was looking to join a small local business. With my previous roles, I spent a lot of time away on-board ships so I wanted to find something based on land, but not office based. The field service engineer role seemed like the perfect fit and my skill set from the marine industry is definitely transferable to the critical power industry. I am enjoying the role so far and it is giving me the challenge I was looking for.”
Finally, on Monday 4th February, Mark joined us.
Mark has over 20 years’ experience working with diesel engines and has spent the last year and a half in the critical power industry.
“Having spent the last year and a half working on generator equipment, I wanted to further my skill set in other aspects of critical power. I was attracted to the role at P & I because they aren’t just a generator service company so I knew there would be the opportunity to learn more about the installation and UPS side of the business, which interests me. I also liked the fact they are a family run business.”
From everyone here at P & I, we would like to welcome Ian, Ubay and Mark to the team!
