About Chris:

Chris is our Engineering Director! He is based in Northern Ireland but is not limited to this location. Chris has come on board to allow us at HFM to expand our services to deal with installations, inspections, break downs and much more! However, when Chris is not attending customers sites and working in the office/factory, he likes to spend his spare time getting some fresh air by engaging in outdoor activities.

Growing up Chris has been a fan of football and still maintains this love of the sport – we will not say what team he supports though! Chris also is a keen golfer, however when he is not trying to get a hole in one, he enjoys spending time with his family. Chris loves to watch his two sons playing rugby.
