Oxford Flow has strengthened its team with the recruitment of product engineer Jamie Manson.

Joining the company from Rolls Royce, where he managed the supply chain of the Nuclear division in a Supplier Quality Role, he will be responsible for purchasing and supply chain management within the business as well as overseeing internal production.

An apprentice-trained engineer, Jamie graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 with a foundation degree in Integrated Engineering. While at Rolls Royce – which he initially joined as a higher manufacturing engineering apprentice – he supported multi-million pound projects and worked to incorporate lean six-sigma principles into external and internal production, developing specialisms including manufacturing, process and quality engineering.

Discussing his appointment Jamie Mason said: “I’m very pleased to be joining such an ambitious young company at such a crucial juncture of its development and helping to support it as its customer base grows.”

Oxford Flow’s CEO Simon Hombersley added: “Following several successful field trials with a number of household-name companies we will be increasing our production and disseminating our PRVs more widely. Jamie’s appointment as Product Engineer is an important step in our growth as a business and we’re delighted to have him on board.”
