Dan Whitelock previously served as an OYS engineering technician

OYS has promoted engineering technician Dan Whitelock to the role of project manager with immediate effect.

OYS designs, engineers and manufactures thrusters, rigging and hydraulics solutions for the global superyacht and commercial marine markets. Whitelock joined the UK company in 2016, where he was building thrusters and hydraulic cylinders including some of the largest vangs installed on superyachts.

“This valuable experience in the factory positions him well for the project management role with the practical knowledge of the tasks in hand, timescales involved, and an understanding of the processes and workings of the factory,” says the company in a statement.

OYS currently employs Dan Wilkin as project manager for thrusters and hydraulics and Jon Briggs-Winn as project manager for rigging. Whitelock will be working alongside both, with guidance and support from his colleagues.
