Alfie is CEO and founder of ACE Winches. Graduating with a Marine Engineering Apprenticeship, Alfie worked as a Downhole Valve Specialist in the oil industry. In tandem he opened a marine and hydraulic engineering workshop manufacturing deck equipment, to service the fishing industry.
As the fishing business took a down turn, Alfie looked to new markets, primarily offshore oil and gas for ACE winches and deck machinery. ACE Winches is the trading name of Alfred Cheyne Engineering Limited and over the last fifteen years Alfie has seized opportunities to establish engineering, hire equipment, hire personnel, service and winch academy divisions.
Alfie was named Scottish CEO of the Year 2013 at the Scottish Business Awards and the 2012 Institute of Directors’ Global Director of the Year. A series of prestigious awards for ACE Winches has been attained over the years including two prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in International Trade.
