John Pitts Appointed a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers

We are very pleased to announce that our Managing Director, John Pitts, has been elected as a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Fellow – FIMechE
“Fellowship is a mark of exceptional commitment, knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering. It demonstrates your wealth of experience, commitment and contribution to engineering.


imehceThe Institution of Mechanical Engineers has over 115,000 members worldwide and has been at the heart of the mechanical engineering profession since 1847. Their vision is centred around changing the world for the better through engineering. They do this by encouraging education initiatives, generating media around engineering topics, setting professional ethical standards, championing innovation and providing industry thought leadership.

John has been a member of ImechE for more than 30 years and has attended numerous events during that time both locally in the South West and also at the Institution headquarters in London. He particularly enjoys  feeling part of the engineering community, being kept informed of developments, and the worldwide recognition of highest standards of engineering that membership of the Institution brings

It was early involvement in the family business of paper manufacture which attracted John to a career in mechanical engineering and his subsequent career with Shell allowed him to begin to specialise in the aviation fuel industry.

As well as being a Chartered Mechanical Engineer (CEng), John is also a European Engineer (EUR ING) and member of the Energy Institute (MEI).

To gain this fellowship John had to show exceptional professionalism as a mechanical engineer as well as demonstrating significant responsibility and leadership qualities within his specialist field (aviation fuel supply). We would like to thank those who provided testimonials and references to help John towards this fellowship as well as the wider eJet team for their continual hard work and commitment to quality engineering practices.
