Chris learnt his trade in the Armed Forces where he spent 23 years with the Royal Engineers. He spent time working on a wide variety of projects in the Army with his specialist skills being in mechanical engineering and explosives. After leaving the Army, Chris established a successful fireworks company but found he wanted to move back into the engineering field. ROME Services York was born in September 2014, combining Chris's love of cruising and marine engineering. Being a boat owner himself, he really understands what it takes to excel in this field - "Having owned a cruiser for the last 8 years, I understand the pleasures cruising can bring to so many people" says Chris "I really wanted to provide a high quality service that focused on the boat owner as well as the boat. I firmly believe that communicating with the customer is the key to a successful relationship".

Chris's approach of communicating with his customers has really paid off and combined with his flexible and fair approach to business, Chris has established himself as a reliable and trustworthy engineer. "It’s the little things that count to our customers" he says "taking your shoes off when entering a boat, leaving it exactly how you found it or even just calling the customer regularly to keep them informed of the work you are undertaking. It all goes a long way to building up that bond"
