Meet the Team – Alan Wills

We don’t want to give away his age but Alan is our longest standing member of staff, having been with the company since day one (over 30 years ago!).


With a passion for engineering and hydraulics, he is a Chairman who still loves to be involved in the business, with many years’ experience, he can always be relied upon for his technical advice and hands-on approach and still enjoys the day-to-day hustle and bustle of the business.


Alan has worked in the hydraulic and engineering industry all of his adult life and has vast experience and qualifications, as a lover of motorbikes however, he is still very proud of his cycling proficiency certificate!


After many years of hard work in the business, Alan is pleased to be able to take things a bit quieter and now enjoys spending quality time with his family.  He is a speed enthusiast and is passionate about cars and motorbikes, he has built up a fantastic collection over the years and enjoys track days both in the UK and internationally.
