After graduating from Edinburgh University in Mechanical Engineering, Andy secured his first position in the industry with Smedvig in 1989.
During his drilling career, Andy worked for ten major operators including BP and Shell, working his way up from Drilling Engineer to Drilling Supervisor, before starting to take an interest in designing his own tools.
Andy founded the Rentals Company in 2002 to begin offering these innovations to the industry, securing initial runs with Hess & Shell in 2003. He continued to contract offshore until 2006 by which time the Company had firmly established a small range of niche application tools.
