"I believe there's a great opportunity for us to shape and deliver new torque solutions, create lasting partnerships with key clients and take full advantage of the fact that we can offer our services for any make and model of torque equipment in the industry.
"The prospect of soon adding a new dimension to our service offering via our own development programme – one which taps into our specialist knowledge and experience – only adds to our confidence that we're creating something special at EnerQuip."
Dave said: “We’re delighted Andrew has joined the business. His knowledge and experience of software and control systems coupled with the existing skillsets of the Enerquip team will undoubtedly allow us to deliver a service level currently not available in the marketplace.
