About Me

Peter 2018

I focus on helping food processing companies provide safe solutions to handle potentially explosive materials and comply with the DSEAR regulations.

My core values are safety, compliance and transparency. My customers trust me to ensure their systems are safe and compliant with the DSEAR regulations. I provide solutions that are efficient and have documented proof of compliance.

Since selling Gatehouse.design which specialises in design configuration systems, I have been working with Dodman Limited in Kings Lynn who provide excellent processing equipment for the food processing industry. I now head up Dodman DSEAR, which helps UK food processing companies implement DSEAR solutions.

I am a chartered engineer with an entrepreneurial flair. I have 30 years of experience managing successful large engineering businesses together and the ability to start many businesses from scratch. I have held many board positions ranging from operations, engineering, technical and managing director. I have been responsible for international companies with turnovers exceeding 35 million pounds.

I have worked in many consulting roles, developing large teams of multi-disciplined engineers, including a project portfolio of 30 million pounds. I was responsible for setting up manufacturing operations and joint ventures in China, India, and the Czech Republic.

I am an accomplished design engineer and have been responsible for developing many new products which have received international patents.

I have a masters degree in bulk materials handling and continuously develop my knowledge of dust safety through specialist courses and research.

I am an active member of:
• Institute of Mechanical Engineers
• Institute of Engineering and Technology
• Solids Handling And Processing Association
