Howard has spent over 35 years in the vacuum pump industry in several countries.
England: Completed a 5 year engineering apprenticeship with Edwards High Vacuum International Ltd. Completed a one year City and Guilds Workshop Technology Course Earned the Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Mechanical Engineering Spent two years in the Field Service Department at Edwards
Canada: Worked in Factory Facilities dept. for switchgear company Gained sales and applications experience in Air compressors, Liquid pumps, Power transmission products (clutches and brakes) and Hydraulic seals. Howard returned to work for Edwards as a sales engineer. Due to customer requests, technical training was offered using UK based trainers and Howard prepared the practical equipment for them to use. He then took over the technical training role as he gained experience in this field.
United States: Howard then moved to Massachusetts to take on the role of Technical Training Manager for North America with BOC Edwards (now Edwards Vacuum). When Stokes Vacuum became an Edwards company the Stokes "Vacuum School" Service training was updated and new technical training developed for the Stokes products. In addition to training in North America he also delivered training courses to semiconductor engineers in Thailand and Ireland.
When BOC was purchased by Linde in 2007, the Edwards business was divested and became a private company. In preparation for this buyout Edwards closed the technical training department.
As a result Howard started Vacuum and Low Pressure Consulting to offer his training skills and experience in the vacuum industry to companies that are new to the technology, or whose employees can benefit from a better understanding of vacuum processes. At this time only training on rebuilding Edwards RV rotary vane pumps is offered, and advice is available for the EM rotary vane pumps..
