Oxford, UK, 18-07-23: Oxford Flow, the flow control equipment specialist, is delighted to announce the appointment of Adam Eckersley as Chief Technology Officer, to help drive the company’s ambitions to lead the transition of the valve industry to innovative technology and reduced emissions.
Adam joins Oxford Flow from Severn where he was Director of Engineering. He brings two decades’ experience in the oil and gas, power, and process industries, and has significant experience in valve product development.
Tasked with producing a market leading engineering and innovation programme for Oxford Flow, one of Eckersley’s primary focuses will be zero emission solutions and hydrogen ready products, as the firm continues to lead the way in technology for the energy transition, such as its ES stemless actuated valve, and its IM series regulators.
Neil Poxon, CEO at Oxford Flow, comments: “We’re delighted to welcome Adam into the Oxford Flow team at such an important period of growth. He brings a strong engineering track record working across sectors such as oil and gas, power, LNG, gas storage, petrochemical and air separation. Having also worked in Europe, Middle East, North Africa, and South America, where we are seeing significant expansion, Adam will be vital to building on our existing innovative approach to developing solutions specifically designed to address customer needs and market challenges.”
As CTO, Eckersley’s role will also involve the review and development of the company’s technology strategy, to expand the offering of control valves and regulators amongst other flow control equipment.
Eckersley added: “Oxford Flow is going from strength to strength, especially with the success of its zero emission, low maintenance technology. The ES stemless actuated valves are game changing, and I feel they will transform not only the valve industry but the energy sector as a whole. I am very excited to be joining as innovation is a real driver for me and Oxford Flow is a world leader with its hydrogen-ready and emission abating products.”
