Our People

Stephen Doe - Managing Director

Stephen moved from Teesside aged 16 to serve his apprenticeship on various power stations all over England.

Following his apprenticeship he worked for Techflow becoming workshop supervisor at the tender age of just 22. During his 12 years with Techflow he mainly looked after Power Stations in the North East Lincolnshire area.

After successfully setting up a valve workshop for a local engineering firm, Bayes Engineering, Stephen and his father Maurice, also an experience Valve Engineer, decided to go it alone and set up Endotec in 2001.

In 2004 due to expansion, Endotec moved to its larger, custom built offices and workshop in Immingham and in 2007 have expanded further into the premises next door.

Darren Schofield – Operations Director

Darren has been with Endotec since our early days in 2002. He started on the workshop floor progressing to Quality and Logistics Manager and is now Endotec’s Operations Director.

Michael Doe - Contracts Manager

Michael ha s been with Endotec since 2003 joining as a technician and is now our Contracts Manager.  His primary role is managing on site projects and outages.


Like many industries the engineering and valve business was built on the development of apprenticeships and on the job training. Over the last 10 to 15 years this has dropped off and the result is a lack of experienced and time served engineers and technicians.

Endotec believe in the apprenticeship system as a way of maintaining standards and building for the future success of the industry and we currently have two apprentices.
