As a director, I oversee the commercial aspect of MedTec Design Services Ltd. One of the most important elements to my role is Business Development and Strategic Growth. I identify and assess new market sectors, growth areas, trends, customers and products and services, as well as set aims and objectives in order to develop, grow and improve the business. 

I take great pride and responsibility in my ability to successfully secure new business for MedTec, this has been evident in the pivotal role that I have played in bringing a vast number of new major clients to the company, many of which I have nurtured into repeat business.

I also manage the day to day administration of the business including everything from HR and finance to health and safety.

Exceptional customer relations go hand in hand with the fantastic services that we offer, so it is my job to ensure that every client’s requirements are met and that they feel valued, understood and appreciated as MedTec customers.

ANDREW DURRELL

MedTec - Meet The Team - Andrew

My Dad was one of the founding partners of MedTec, so I grew up in this technical engineering environment, which I naturally always had an interest in. I ended up doing an apprenticeship with MedTec at age 16, combined with a day release engineering course at the Isle of Wight College. I’ve come and gone from the business over the years, in various engineering roles, but been back with MedTec since 2012.

I have spent most of my career working in wind energy, helping one of the world leaders in the field design more efficient and advanced wind turbine blades. People often see wind turbines spinning away generating electricity but underestimate the amount of design work that has gone into the blades, the components inside, the processes involved in making them and the amount of complex technology going on beneath the surface. It’s a competitive industry where things are constantly evolving, there are plenty of challenges to keep me busy and the fact I’m working in green energy makes me happy.

I enjoy the diverse mix of work that comes through the door, we’ve taken on some really interesting projects over the years, from the big global companies to the small one man bands, the variety of work and people you meet along the way means it rarely gets boring.

Working for a small company like MedTec means you get treated like an individual, not simply a resource. We’re a friendly professional team and it’s a great environment to quickly pick up new skills and experience.

We’ve got a really great team of staff here, and we are planning on building up our numbers this year. I believe that if we continuously improve our capabilities and the services we offer, as well as keeping our regular customers happy, we will win new clients, enabling us expand the business and our numbers.
