Andy Manning

Operations Manager

Andy Manning is a professionally qualified commercial and technical senior manager with nearly 30 years’ experience in process plant industries. He joined Opus in July, 2012 and is currently primarily involved with developing the company’s consultancy and technology and business platforms.

He is registered with the Engineering Council as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and is a member of The Institution of Plant Engineers (MIPlantE) and The Society of Operations Engineers (MSOE). In addition to plant/mechanical/electrical engineering qualifications, he also has a Diploma in Management from the University of Reading which included modules on strategy, marketing, finance, operations, personnel and information technology.

The universal requirement for process plant has meant that Andy, 45, has experience in most manufacturing and production industries and utilities, in particular oil & gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, microelectronics, power generation and water supply.

He joined the Permutit Co Ltd, part of the Thames Water Group, in 1983 as a technical trainee and rose to become a senior design sales engineer gaining experience as a development engineer and project engineer along the way.

Between 1994 and 2006 he worked for Elga Process Water, initially as a contracts manager, before moving into a marketing/business development role and latterly becoming service operations manager. In 2006 Andy joined Cameron Process Systems as a business manager responsible for an international aftermarket business.

Andy considers Opus to be an ambitious, technically strong, environmentally aware and well respected organisation that works with technologies and within markets that he is both familiar with and interested in. He said: “Opus have a high profile in the offshore oil and gas industry in the UK and although having already undertaken many projects outside the UK it is the overseas market where Opus will be able to make the greatest contribution to its growth targets.”
