Over 20 years of experience in project engineering, process engineering, procurement and expediting as well as a wide ranging background have enabled Jon to develop an in-depth understanding of the needs of Clients, Contractors and Suppliers and their inter-relationship in fulfilling the overall project schedule to required time, cost and quality parameters. In addition, his diverse experience has provided him with the ability to assess the impact of any potential delays and to prescribe and implement effective remedial actions on a timely basis.
The best way to describe Jon is a multi-discipline project engineer.
With a BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering and an MSc in Subsea Engineering, Jon’s engineering experience is largely centred on the Oil and Gas industry, with particular emphasis on pipelines (both onshore and subsea), gas processing and LNG facilities.
A diploma in Accountancy and a Bachelor in Foreign Languages (English and French), along with her 10-year-long experience in the Uk, first as a Student Wellbeing officer then as a HR office manager, have contributed to build her international profile.
Once back in Italy, she was hired as logistics Manager’s Assistant for a busy forging company, an experience that helped Veronica to improve her customer relationship knowledge, that later allowed her to become the head of the customer care department for a second forging company.
She is currently the Managing Director of SCMHUB S.r.l.

SuDev Projects, being based in the South of England, has great road, rail and air links enabling full national and international coverage for our clients.
Our logistics partner, SCMHUB, is based in Brescia, Italy – a central location to all main forging & machining suppliers in northern Italy.
It has good road access to western, northern and eastern Europe as well as to the main Italian sea ports.
Northern Italy is one of the major worldwide centres for forgings which are the base components for a large range of oil & gas equipment items such as BOPs, subsea production trees, valves, pumps and compressors. Unfortunately, most of the forgings are currently shipped separately as LTLs (LESS THAN LOADS) resulting in increased cost and increased truck movements. Our service, including a stopover at our facility in Brescia, consolidates and optimizes shipments by increasing FTLs (FULL TRUCK LOADS) and therefore reducing overall costs.
It is becoming increasingly clear that projects are executed on ever more frequently tighter schedules to enable Clients to maximise their investment returns by generating revenue at the earliest opportunity. One of the impacts of these tighter project schedules is a tendency towards “just-in-time” procurement, culminating in a reduction in any available delivery schedule “float”. In other words, an ever increasing number of items are becoming schedule critical before the purchase orders have even been placed.
The expeditor mainly operates from either the Clients’ own offices or from his/her own base office, and monitors vendor progress remotely.
The expeditor mainly operates from the vendors’ premises and maintains regular communications with the Clients’ office. The expeditor is available on site to identify potential areas of delay and to advise and assist wherever possible in order to eliminate problems and/or minimise their impact.
In summary, our effective co-ordination, coupled with our proven professional expertise, academic skills and a high level of managerial and “hands on” experience, not only ensures that products meet the required specification parameters in full, but also minimises the risk of late deliveries and thereby effectively reduces any impact upon the overall construction schedule(s). This effectively also eliminates the risk of our Clients incurring “knock on” costs (either direct or indirect), due to late delivery of key equipment, which obviously represents a very important element of the overall project costing philosophy.
