Charlotte Richardson joins UK thruster specialist with immediate effect

UK-based thrusters, rigging and hydraulics solutions specialist OYS has named Charlotte Richardson as the group’s new designer.

Richardson brings a wealth of knowledge to the role. She studied Automotive Engineering at Oxford Brookes while also gaining work experience at McLaren. Since graduating, Richardson has broadened her experience further, working within design teams with marine companies also operating in the large yacht and superyacht industry.

“I have hit the ground running and I really enjoy the variety of the work,” she says. “I enjoyed spending a couple of days working on the shop floor where I had the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the range of products and processes here.

”Back at my desk I’ve been altering existing designs and starting on drawings for a new range launching later in the year.”

OYS designs and manufactures thrusters, rigging and hydraulics solutions for the global superyacht and commercial marine industry. The company is based in Christchurch, Dorset.
