John McCullagh

Director/Head Of Engineering

John has been a director with the MMC group for 20 years and has spent his whole career immersed in engineering. He started off as a draughtsman, rose to works manager responsible for a very large fabrication and machine shop operations and 10 years ago took the role of MD. He is a down to earth practical engineer, with great experience, with an eye for a solution and the drive to make it happen. In many cases he is able to say ‘been there - done it’ which is a tremendous asset available to our clients to support their fast track engineering and technical projects.


Rolf is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and alongside his MSS role is the Managing Director of Inlec UK Ltd -an associated MMC group company- who hire test equipment and offer UKAS calibration services. He has been part of the MMC group engineering operations for much of his career and enjoys the technical challenges offered by the engineering sector.


Tim was responsible for the early development of MSS and in particular was the director who dealt with its significant expansion into the UK steel industry. He founded MSS’s Engineering division and he has a passion for quick turnaround site works. Alongside his MSS role, he is also currently responsible as MD for Matchsaver and Evercal who are two associated companies in the MMC group.


Peter acts as our in-house design consultant and brings a refreshingly analytical blend to the teams approach on technical assignments. His early days were spent as an engineer in the UK Armed Forces and were followed by a period as Head of the Engineering Structural Test Facility within a leading UK university. He specialises in structural design, full scale and destructive testing – not a surprise given his military background! He has established a network of test facilities within Europe to support our general engineering and Wind Farm foundation works.


Mal Plunkett

Senior Projects Engineer

Having been impressed with MSS’s can-do approach and innovative solutions whilst he was interface manager on the construction of an offshore wind farm, Mal readily accepted an invitation to join the team. Mal is a highly experienced engineer, having worked in the steel, process, manufacturing, subsea marine and construction industries. This has given him an extensive skill-set that is highly valued by our clients. Outside of MSS, Mal puts his skills to use in the restoration of classic motors.


David Graham, FCA

Senior Manager - Operations and Strategy

David is a Chartered Accountant who was previously Financial Director of the MMC Group companies in the early 1990’s. He has spent many years as Director for a number companies outside the group acting at operational and strategic level. This is the role which he currently fulfils within the MSS team. He has an unfortunate liking for numbers, corporate relationships and contract structures, which is a great asset in the fast moving operational environment in which MSS operates – but doesn’t always make him the most interesting person to talk to at the bar!


Denis Cheung, CIMA

Financial Controller and Company Secretary

Denis who is a qualified member of the Institute of Management Accountants joined the company in 2006 and brings a strong engineering background to the financial team. He has introduced state of the art accounting systems and reporting capabilities with commensurate benefits to clients and projects. His mathematical accuracy and accounting wizardry are legendary amongst the team!
