Andrea Hough OBE
Andrea joined Hawker Siddeley Dynamics Engineering as a commercial apprentice straight from school. The Company changed its name many times over the years as Andrea progressed through IT, Commercial and then Production Management before taking over the three manufacturing plants in Farnworth, Welwyn Garden City and Portsmouth during the period when the company was acquired by Vosper Thornycroft in the mid 1990’s.
In 2004 after a restructuring by Vosper Thornycroft, Andrea and her business partner purchased the remaining manufacturing site which had relocated to Worsley, Manchester in 2004 and so began AT Engine Controls Limited.
Andrea has a Diploma in Business Studies and was recently awarded an OBE in the Queens New Year’s honours list for her services to Manufacturing.
