Our Team

Here at Hiatco, we are more than just colleagues – we are a family.

The importance of the Hiatco family to our future growth cannot be under estimated – without them it wouldn’t be possible.

And it isn’t just about expanding the workforce – talent retention is just as important as talent attraction and that’s why every year Hiatco invests in its staff so they have the opportunity to move up the career ladder.

Here are just a few of the people who are part of the family…

Paul Sun

  |  BA (Hons)

Managing Director

Paul inherited the family business after his father Tony Sun sadly passed away in July 2012.

Paul now drives all high level strategic management decisions but has handed the day to day running of the business to newly appointed directors Stuart and James. Keeping the ethos of his father’s vision central, Paul’s plans are to grow the business over the next few years.

Stuart Parkin

Operations Director

Stuart was 17 when he joined Hiatco as an apprentice. After completing his apprenticeship in 2004 he excelled and at 24 was promoted into a supervisory role.

As operations director, Stuart is responsible for the running of the business, ensuring all contracts are fulfilled to customers’ specifications. He also looks after Health & Safety, having completed an IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health) Managing Safely course in 2015.

James Parkin

  |  AWeldI

Production Director

James, like his twin brother Stuart, joined Hiatco at 17 in 2001. After completing his apprenticeship he moved into the production side of the business and worked his way up to the role of welding supervisor.

In 2009 James completed his training to become a CSWIP 3.1 welding inspector. In 2016 James, along with his brother Stuart, took over the running of the company on a day to day basis from MD Paul Sun.
