Smith Brothers’ appointments add century of engineering expertise 

Published: 21 February 2020 - Carly Wills

High voltage power contractor, Smith Brothers, has added 95 years of electrical engineering knowledge to its portfolio as three new faces join the Yorkshire-headquartered firm – alongside a pair of newly-qualified former apprentices and 11 further roles. 

Appointed as a project manager, Ken Epplestone brings 33 years of experience within the sector. Having worked his way through the ranks, Epplestone has held senior management positions at Northern Powergrid, Electricity Northwest, Carillion, Enterprise and Amey. 

In addition, Roy Flowdy has joined the team at the organisation’s Elland HQ as a project manager. Having worked in the transmission and distribution equipment industry for over 30 years, Flowdy has held accreditations for all but one of the distribution network operators (DNO) in the UK and Ireland.  

Another new face is Sameh Dawoud, the company’s latest civil design engineer. Based out of the firm’s dedicated design office in Sheffield, he has worked in the industry since 1987 – when he graduated from university.

Completing the new-look line-up, Adam Kirk and James Boothroyd are celebrating the completion of their Utility and Construction Training (UCT) each with full-time roles as a trainee fitter and prover.

David Ogden, managing director at Smith Brothers said: “It’s a very exciting time for Smith Brothers, with over 650KW of high voltage connection projects currently in planning, design and construction.

“As our reputation as an ICP and EPC specialist flourishes, we’re constantly looking to expand our team of industry talent in order to support demand. As a company, we’re incredibly passionate about nurturing skills at all ages, and alongside the three new faces, it’s great to see two of our apprentices finishing their education and joining us as full-time members of staff.”
