Derwyn Oxley

Derwyn has been providing Process Control & Automation (PC&A) products and services in South Africa since 1984, when he started working as a contractor at the RM3 site of Rand Mines in the old Gold Mining sector of Johannesburg - Crown Mines. 

Prior to those early days, Derwyn was educated and grew up in England and saw first employment with British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL). They provided him with excellent training and education by way of an apprenticeship in Instrumentation. Derwyn completed a comprehensive 4 year apprenticeship along with 5 years at technical colleges where he completed "City and Guilds T1/T2 Industrial Measurement & Control" and a Higher Technicians Certificate (City and Guilds HNC), also in Industrial Measurement & Control. 

Derwyn moved to South Africa in 1982 and joined the Gencor mining group at Grootvlei mine in Springs. In January 1984, Derwyn decided to work as a contractor for Wade Walker, contracting to Rand Mines. In 1985, Derwyn was employed by Bateman Process Instrumentation (BPI) as a PLC Project Engineer. BPI provided Derwyn with many opportunities and challenges and Derwyn was to go and work on many PLC, SCADA and DCS products and projects. 

Derwyn also developed customer relationship skills to the extent that BPI asked him to work in a sales role. This also turned into success and saw Derwyn in several roles including branch manager, technical support manager, product manager and sales manager. 

BPI encouraged Derwyn to develop further and it was while at BPI that Derwyn attended many local and overseas technical training courses and in 1992 completed a Management Advancement Program (MAP) at Wits University Business School. 

Since 1994, Derwyn has been living and working in Cape Town and in 2000 started his own systems integration company – Oxley Incorporated. Over the last 20 Years, Derwyn has built up a highly respected reputation for providing professional service and products in the PC&A market. This has expanded to include production monitoring and reporting systems, solutions and consultation. With his involvement in PSQ and SAPICS, he has also been able to share these experiences and knowledge with a far more diverse range of clients and applications.
