BPE expands with two appointments

BPE has appointed two new members of staff as it continues its ambitious growth plans.

The chemical and biochemical engineering design firm, based in Hampshire, has taken on John Aspinall as a senior project manager.

John, a member of IChemE, has more than 30 years’ experience of delivering technically complex and highly serviced projects in both the public and private sector. During his career he has led a plethora of multi-million pound projects within the life science and pharmaceutical sectors.

John said: “BPE is doing some really ground-breaking work, taking new approaches to solving process engineering challenges. That different way of working and willingness to challenge the status quo appealed to me and I’m excited to join the company.”

Mike Brown, managing director, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome John to the team. His specialisms in biotechnology, life sciences and pharmaceutical sectors, reflect the make-up of our client base and will be of real benefit to the businesses we work with.”

BPE has also brought on board a new graduate chemical engineer in the form of Sam Fass. Sam, from London, studied chemical engineering at Imperial College London and will be based at BPE’s headquarters in Colden Common, near Winchester.

Sam said: “The design project was by far my favourite part of my degree so I’m excited to be working with one of the best process design companies in the UK. BPE has a brilliant reputation and I’m proud to call myself a part of the team.”

BPE is currently undertaking an ambitious five-year growth strategy. Last year it opened a new office in the North of England and several new appointments have been made in 2017, expanding its team of established experts.
