Engineering firm the Varley Group has gained the services of an engineer from Spain for its Specialised Vehicles Division.
Eliseo Bouza from Madrid has joined the Varley team and will be based at its headquarters at Tomago in the Hunter Valley region of NSW.
Mr Bouza has 30 years’ engineering experience, with a particular focus in the fire and rescue sector.
Past roles included Fire/Engineering Manager for Papworth Specialist Vehicles where he was responsible for 109 new Fire Engines for the London Fire Brigade plus 33 new Fire Engines and 2 Rescue units for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue.
Papworth’s former Managing Director, Denis Mellon says Mr Bouza brought to the company “a quality of engineering that it didn’t possess.”
