Martin is one of our dedicated Field Service Managers, whose combined technical and operational knowledge is a part of what makes EOS the trusted innovative supplier of choice when it comes to electrical insulating oil.
Martin started his career in 1995, working as an Industrial Placement Student GEC Alsthom in the high-voltage switchgear department whilst studying Electrical Engineering.
The next 10 years saw Martin work in a number of different roles within the industry; from compiling orders for high voltage switchgear and working as a Contracts Engineer, to moving into transformer distribution and managing the transportation of transformers all over the world. Before joining the team at EOS, Martin was a project leader involved in the service and maintenance of transformer installations and their transportation.
With this wealth of practical knowledge and experience, Martin joined the team at EOS in 2014, where he took up the position of Area Manager and later on as Field Service Manager.
Tom leads an office team that is the first point of contact for many of our customer interactions and responsible for driving continuous improvement in the way we provide good service to our customers.
Tom joined EOS in 2010 as part of the Customer Services team, before being appointed Customer Services Manager the following year. In 2014, Tom was given account management responsibilities for our high voltage contractors, which means he now splits his time between these dual roles. Tom is responsible for maintaining and developing working relationships with many of our customers, but specifically our contractor customers working on high voltage networks.
Tom works closely with our clients and during his time at EOS has gained excellent knowledge of their specific needs, from details about individual delivery locations to personnel requirements. It is this level of customer service and attention to detail that has allowed EOS to develop strong long-term relationships with many of our clients. Tom is proud to lead a team that provides a complete, quality service, from the contact customers have with office-based staff, all the way through to their experience with the EOS technical teams on-site.
Mike is responsible for the EOS operations at our Stanlow site. Additionally, he manages our Base Oil product line.
Mike has been with the team since April 2000, having spent his entire career in the oil and chemical industry with companies such as Dexter Speciality Chemicals and Arizona Chemicals. He graduated university in 1988 with a degree in Accounting and Finance, before later qualifying as a Chartered Management Accountant in 1990.
When EOS was formed in 1999, it was a joint venture between Castrol UK and Carless. Mike was the first employee of the joint venture company as a result of both shareholders wanting to recruit a financial controller who was impartial and had not previously worked for either of the partners.
Mike now has a wide ranging role, which includes responsibility for accounting and finance, customer services and administration department, freight/transport, sales of base and process oils, raw material purchasing and stock control.

“EOS has a friendly and approachable way of working and places a lot of emphasis on building relationships with its customers. We work in a transparent way with our clients, suggesting the best practice working methods based on first hand experience in the industry.
There is a vast amount of technical and professional knowledge within EOS, something that set us apart from our competition. Our innovative team are constantly striving to stay that one step ahead, ensuring we meet the latest standards and specifications when it comes to EOS products and services.”
“The continued success of EOS comes down to the people we employ, a small but dedicated and enthusiastic team of both Area Managers and technical operations staff. It is our honest, open and professional approach which has led us to build loyal relationships with our customers. We’re dedicated to the future of recycling used insulating oil and look forward to seeing the company continue to grow into the next 50 years and beyond.”
“We’ve got the right people at EOS, a team of experts passionate about what they do. Our balance of innovators and pragmatists ensure our processes and services not only meet our customers’ needs but also surpass our strict quality and safety controls.
It’s our aim to give our customers a constant point of contact to discuss any oil-related matters. What’s key to EOS is that we will always prioritise giving our customers the most suitable advice for their specific situation over making a quick sale. Our genuine and trusted technical advice, training and information will always reflect that.”
“EOS transformer oil is truly sustainable and renewable, we offer the electricity industry the opportunity to take an oil that is at the end of its life cycle and transform it back into an oil that is as good as new at a fraction of the cost of obtaining virgin oil.
The recent acquisition of EOS by HCS Group opens up a wealth of opportunity for EOS to expand its operations into Continental Europe and beyond.”
“The future looks really good for EOS. We’re the only purpose built plant to accept & treat large volumes of hazardous waste mineral insulating oil and produce a consistent, quality product fit for its original intended use.
Through careful consideration and planning we are able to continually adapt to changes in legislation and industry specification, while our high levels of customer service allow us to meet customer requirements.”
It’s our extensive experience in the (in-situ) treatment, storage and supply of insulating oil that gives our customers peace of mind when it comes to the quality and standard of our services.
Not only do we supply unused and regenerated insulating oil, but we also provide a range of robust complimentary products.
Our people are passionate about what they do, giving honest, pure, expert advice on a subject they know inside and our.
