Farrat New Starter – Paul Mellish: Head of Engineering and Operations

23rd Jan 2020

In 2019 Farrat were pleased to welcome Paul Mellish as our new Head of Engineering and Operations. A few months in, we’d like to tell you a little more about one of our new additions to the team.

What led you to Farrat?

I completed a degree in Manufacturing Engineering & Management at Loughborough University. I then spent almost 11 years at Rolls-Royce (aero engines) in a variety of Manufacturing Engineering roles. Following that, I moved into the automotive industry as a Technical Manager at Bentley Motors.

I was drawn back to aerospace for a couple more years in a consultant role, assisting a number of domestic SME’s to become more globally competitive. Following a short stint in Additive Manufacturing as an Operations Manager, I became the Operations Director for an aerospace surface treatments business, before moving to Farrat.

What are you most looking forward to getting involved in/doing at Farrat?

Assisting an already successful company to achieve the next big step and become world-leaders in our industry sector! I am also looking forward to enabling each area of the business to achieve its objectives and develop a high-performing community that is sustainable for the long-term future.

What drives you on a day to day basis?

Knowing that I have made a tangible contribution to the performance and success of the business. On a personal level, my main drive is to make my family proud and to provide them with a comfortable way of life.

Paul is just one of many new team members in a range of areas of the team including engineering, HR, accounts and operations. We’re looking forward to introducing you to more team members throughout 2020.
