The development of QLM’s manufacturing offering is increasingly important as we refine the design of our equipment to accommodate mass-market industrial scalability. Bringing electronics design in-house with a dedicated expert is a crucial step towards long-term self-sustainability, making it an excellent time for John to join the team and help drive the commercial design of the product forwards.

John obtained his BEng in Electronic Engineering at Cardiff, before starting his career in the defence industry, developing hardware platforms for key management and secure communications systems. He then moved to a company developing optical fibre based acoustic sensing equipment for applications within the oil and gas, security and transport sectors, where he first met QLM’s CTO, Xiao Ai. Most recently, he has worked in the fire industry leading a multidisciplinary team developing certified alarm devices, detectors and systems for high volume manufacture. John will be collaborating with our Head of Manufacturing, Mark Walker, and Head of Engineering, Dr. Alex Dunning, as well as our external manufacturing partners and our R&D teams.

John said, “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to join QLM and be part of a talented team working on such an innovative new product. The state of the art technology is a real draw for me, especially as it helps to address such an important real-world issue as emissions.”
