• Our Family

    With integrity, commitment and putting the customer at the heart of their processes, Alderley soon developed an enviable reputation for technical excellence, quality and customer service – and have repeatedly partnered with some of the biggest names in the industry as a result.

Over 50 years of delivering technical excellence with family values at our core.

In 1989, Tony Shepherd brought multiple companies and their many years of experience together to form Alderley.

As Founder and Chairman of Alderley, Tony’s ambition was to create a leading, British engineering company to support not only the growing oil and gas industry in the North Sea, but also his family. This meant that the oil and gas industry was about to experience a new type of company.

Even in the early days when many young businesses can struggle, family values outweighed the pursuit of quick wins for the balance sheet. With integrity, commitment and putting the customer at the heart of their processes, Alderley soon developed an enviable reputation for technical excellence, quality and customer service – and have repeatedly partnered with some of the biggest names in the industry as a result.

From humble beginnings as a single workshop in Wickwar, Gloucestershire, Alderley has now grown to become the leading system integrator for Modular Packages in the oil and gas industry.

Almost 30 years and over 750 systems on, Tony is still integral to the business as Chairman of Alderley. His demand for technical excellence, unwavering resolve for quality, and commitment to providing the right engineering solution for our customers – both operationally and commercially – continue to resonate throughout Alderley. And with the Shepherd family represented on the board and in key positions throughout the company, the same family values and ethos that have resulted in the successes so far remain core in all of Alderley’s activities today.

With ambitions for another 30 years of success, the Shepherd family and a firmly ingrained set of values will continue to drive Alderley forward in the future.
