Tom Absalom

Managing Director

Tom has worked within the data centre industry for over 30 years, having served an indentured apprenticeship with the leading UK manufacturer of data centre cooling products. A mechanical engineer by discipline, his career has provided a wide range of experience encompassing manufacturing, production engineering, product design (including UK, European and US patents) and more broadly M&E services design and build for critical environments.  

In 2006 Tom joined JCA Engineering and as Managing Director is responsible for all aspects of the business including the engineering divisions that provide design, project and maintenance services to a wide range of clients including data centre sector, healthcare, science and technology and commercial services. As well as thriving on the challenges that operating the business generates, Tom is fully involved in the delivery of services to clients on a day-to-day basis and enjoys nothing more than engaging in the engineering detail. 

The culture we have developed at JCA is very much client and delivery focused, with a genuine desire for collaborative client engagements built for the long-term. Combining this ethos with the privilege of working with the JCA team, unparalleled in strength and professionalism, my role is hugely rewarding.”
