PES Performance are looking to the future as they further strengthen their engineering design team.

The appointment of Dean Gardner as Principal Engineer highlights the rapid development of the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) based engineering solutions company in the past two years and its increasing involvement in larger engineering design projects.

Dean joins PES from his previous role as Engineering Manager at Atkins Energy where he looked after the fifty strong engineering team for the Nuclear Design function that designed mechanical handling equipment for various civil and defence nuclear programmes.

Dean’s career includes designing state of the art fly-by-wire controls systems for clients such as BAE Systems, NASA, Bombardier and Lockheed Martin, and supplying design services into clients including, Rolls-Royce’s Tidal Generation (now GE Renewables) and GE Oil & Gas.

On his appointment Dean comments;

“What attracted me to PES was the enthusiasm of Mike and Dan for the success of their business. They never say no to any challenge, large or small.  They offer a level of one-to-one personal service with their clients that is difficult to achieve in larger organisations, due to the complexity at the interface between them. Ultimately having a small experienced team provides total flexibility to adapt to any client and their industry needs and so offer effective turnkey solutions.

“The variety of projects that PES have undertaken is extremely impressive and for an engineer this provides a broad diet of work and the opportunity to experience all aspects of the product life cycle.  Not only do you have the responsibility for delivering the work, you also get to do it!”

Dan Fleetcroft, Engineering Design Director at PES welcomes Dean to the team, saying;

“We have very specific requirements, as an engineering solutions business, operating in multiple environments, and it is difficult to find design engineers who have gained a broad level of experience before specialising.

“It has taken us over 12 months to find the perfect individual to join the team, and in Dean we feel we now have that person. In addition to his engineering design skills, Dean has the experience we increasingly need in terms of delivering larger, complex projects.

“Now we have the senior team in place we are better positioned to mentor, train, coach and develop the growing team. Dean brings new skills to the team and his experience operating in the nuclear design environment and managing projects in excess of £75m positions the PES brand for the future.

“As well as working with clients to explore concepts and develop appropriate solutions, Dean also has the experience to drive these large projects through the supply chain to ensure that they are commissioned and operational within required timescales.”
