- Case Studies
Allan began his career with an apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and this lead to project management, which he enjoyed. He worked for Nuaire for eight years as a Contracts Manager before moving to a French ventilation company where he worked for three years. In 1992 he created SCS Group and celebrated its 25-year anniversary in December 2017.
Allan has recently stepped down from his position of Managing Director after many years at the helm, handing over the reins to Christopher Jones who he has worked alongside for many years. However, he will still have a major role at SCS Group as an important part of the Senior Management Team, focusing on research and development in addition to new and exciting product innovations.
Allan knows the importance of cultivating healthy business relationships with clients and is always eager to meet up with customers to discuss any issues and improve the way SCS works.
Allan is proud of the SCS Group staff and takes great pleasure in seeing people develop. He explained: “People tend to stay for a long time and it’s almost like another family.”
In his spare time, Allan enjoys boxing, live music and “playing guitar badly”. He likes to keep fit and in 2016 completed the Paris Marathon, raising cash for CRASH, the construction industry’s charity, along with a number of SCS colleagues.
Allan is also an avid traveller and likes to get out in the fresh air, regularly taking part in triathlons, climbing mountains and trekking. Ever the adventurer, Allan climbed Mount Everest in May 2017. Find out more about his adventure here.
