Upon leaving Edinburgh, Andrew worked as a graduate design engineer for BAE Systems designing composite panels for military aircraft on the F35 Joint Strike Fighter project. After several years he moved to a small company working in the offshore sector which designed and built customised equipment. Andrew joined as a design engineer, then led several projects before setting up a consultancy department prior to becoming a Director.
In 2010 Andrew set up his own design and consultancy business, Ardmore Craig Ltd, working with his team to design and build novel equipment for the offshore oil & gas, subsea and renewables sectors supplying around 2000 tonnes of machinery to date for use around the world. In parallel with this he has set up several sister companies undertaking onshore engineering and developing new technologies. As an engineer Andrew has been fortunate to travel round the world visiting America, Brazil, Azerbaijan and Singapore among others while undertaking challenging projects and developing solutions which positively impact on the energy sector.
