Key People

The people we employ are our most important asset

A wealth of experience

From a client’s initial concept, we take ownership of the challenges to turn them into business solutions. Our engineering teams offer a single point of contact to complete what we see as an “in-house” project, taking it through to commissioning.

The first step is to assemble the correct team to see the project through to the end. In addition to our people, this may include personnel from the client, any of their professional advisers and/or main contractor and must be achieved by liaison between all parties to attain the mutually desired goal. This management team must be dedicated to the project and have the skills and experience to realise the full potential of the latest technologies and techniques.

Planning ahead is vital and we recognise that this requires the team to focus on a number of areas including:

  • Health and Safety considerations.
  • Project planning and timing of key stage activities.
  • Procurement arrangements for manpower allocation, plant and equipment and specialist services.
  • Ensuring appropriate site management and supervision, co-ordination with others on site, quality and financial control.
  • Compliance with statutory and other requirements.
  • Health and Safety considerations.
  • Completion and commissioning documentation.
  • Energy saving and management.

Our objective is to provide a comprehensive installation service, on time and within budget, to the completion satisfaction of our clients.

Read More David gained his leadership experience at both blue-chip multi-nationals and small and medium-sized enterprises. He began his career with 15 years of service at a global packaging corporation, which included a five-year period on location in Asia, where he worked on a range of major capital projects and factory expansions. Before joining Musk as Managing Director, he ran two businesses in the building products manufacture and supply sector – one involving architectural glazing, another involving packaged water and wastewater systems. He also ran Norgren Pneumatics UK and Ireland for IMI Plc. David is married with two teenage children. He enjoys following all kinds of sport, especially when accompanied by a good craft beer.
Read More Ady first joined Musk in 1992, initially as a Works Foreman. Five years later he was appointed as a Project Engineer, which gave him the opportunity to grow our presence at the Kraft Foods site, ultimately installing a four-strong team there. He went on to become Associate Director, looking after various sites and the tradesmen across our workforce. During his time with the company, Ady has actively grown the apprenticeship scheme, helping to steer it from 14 staff members to more than 70 trade and 50 office-based employees. As part of his most recent role, he will be supporting the design package for vessels, and identifying cost savings within our workshop. He will also be visiting sites around the UK to ensure they are following the same company-wide procedures, and learning best practice from each other. Ady is now responsible for a team of five, plus a further nine shop-floor and engineering apprentices, and all trade works. He is also involved with our Health & Safety committee, which meets every three months to ensure best practice.
