PTP is under new ownership

Cambridge based engineering consultancy Product Technology Partners (PTP) is now under new ownership. The company’s Engineering Manager, Ian Hurst, acquired a shareholding in the business on December 1st 2016. PTP specialises in custom Test & Measurement, Control Systems and bespoke software solutions for clients across a wide range of industries.

In his new role as Director of PTP Ian said: “Since joining PTP, I have come to realise how strong the company’s ability to provide solutions really is and how much potential for the future the business has. It is clear that the company is very well positioned to grow and that its skills are very much in demand. It is quite rare to see an organisation with such a wide range of capabilities and experience. I really look forward to helping provide the direction and focus to take PTP to the next level.”

PTP’s other Director, Kevin Snelling, said of the purchase: It is great to start the New Year on a high with Ian taking a directorship and co-ownership of the company. Ian’s wealth of commercial and technical skills have already helped PTP move in new directions and both Ian and I are looking forward to fulfilling our expansion plans and addressing the challenges that 2017 will bring.

Ian has over 30 years of software, electronics and systems development and 25 years of experience engineering and project management. Ian’s previous role includes Head of Operations for Pi Technology (a 140 person automotive consultancy) and Assistant Director of Controls Systems at Ceres Power (an innovative fuel cell technology company), as well as various project management and engineering management roles in leading companies in the Cambridge area.
