Jonathan Steward

Jonathan Steward

Managing Director

I have worked in and around the glass industry for the last 30 years and in early 2010 I set up Eco Engineering with my wife Emma, who is our Commercial Director.

In my early years I started as a sheet metal worker fabricating and installing ductwork systems for furnaces and IS Machine cooling.

My work has taken me all over the world installing and removing IS Machines and Lehrs, working directly for glass manufacturers or working for companies who provide services direct to the glass industry. As well as installing and decommissioning equipment I worked for O-I Europe building IS Machines before they moved to Poland.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and anything to do with off-roading!

I set up Eco Engineering with my husband Jonathan in 2010 and more recently have been juggling running a business full time and managing a 3 year old!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, especially my little boy Joe and our two dogs.
