Andrew Oliver

Position: Engineering Manager and Director

Andrew is late Parkol founder John Oliver’s son and continues his engineering expertise within the business. He is responsible for overseeing all of our engineering activities, having first joined as an apprentice engineer in 1998 – completing a five-year specialist marine engineering training programme which included six months at the well-regarded South Tyneside Marine College. Andrew became a director in 2011.

Andrew is proud of Parkol’s leading industry reputation, and relishes the opportunity his role brings for him to continually trial new ideas.

My dad was very much a marine engineering expert and my mentor, and I learned all my skills from him.

This represents everything I’ve ever wanted to do since I was young. I would watch my dad at work during the school holidays and shared his fascination with boats, so it was inevitable that I would follow in his footsteps.

I feel very proud to be carrying on my dad’s legacy and hope that I can also pass it on to my children, if that’s what they decide they want to do.
