With manufacturing of its CXO300 diesel outboard set to commence this year, Cox Powertrain has announced new management appointments to further strengthen its technical leadership team ahead of production.

Head of Quality, Alex Degnen and Technical Director, Stephen Moore (pictured), have a wealth of experience in bringing engines to market.

Staff numbers at the Shoreham, UK-based firm have now grown to over 100 and the new appointments reinforce the high level of investment and input of expertise that continues to be made. A production line is currently being put in place at Cox’s headquarters and, when fully operational, will run in varying shifts to meet the unprecedented demand for the new high-powered diesel outboards.

Degnen has a proven track record, with 14 years’ experience as a quality manager and improvement specialist. He joins Cox Powertrain from his most recent position as Senior Quality Engineer at Ricardo.

Moore also worked at engineering specialist Ricardo for almost 30 years, where he held several senior management positions, across a diverse range of market sectors.

Speaking about the new appointments, Cox Powertrain CEO Tim Routsis said: “Going into this exciting next stage of Cox’s development, we have ensured that we have the best possible team in place to guarantee the smooth operation of our assembly line and the highest quality of production. Stephen and Alex join an exceptional team of highly experienced specialists who have been instrumental in bringing the world’s highest-powered diesel outboard to market. At the same time, our team has also been working hard to make sure a second-to-none after sales service has been put in place, linked to our global dealership network.”
