OCF plc, the UK’s premier HPC system integrator, demonstrates its ongoing commitment to providing customers with deep HPC technical skills, expertise and knowledge with the appointments of long-term employees Barry Evans, Technical Manager and Russell Slack, Engineering Manager to its Board of Directors.
