A Welcome Boost to EnerMech

EnerMech has extended the capability of its Valves Care Division with a number of key appointments and investment in facilities and equipment totalling £3.5 million.

The mechanical engineering specialist is also looking at several potential acquisitions which will enlarge its operational footprint in the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

Bob Stephen has been appointed general manager for EnerMech’s UK valves operations and joins from Wood Group where he was engineering and choke valve manager and had global responsibility for the company’s choke valve product line.

Other appointments include Iain Stewart as production manager and Andrew Whyte as workshop supervisor. Tim Milne has been promoted to the role of international sales manager, while Bruce Campbell, who spent 20 years with valves specialist Score, now heads up EnerMech’s valves business in Australia.

The £3.5 million investment follows the acquisition of Aberdeen Valves Supplied Ltd and subsidiary LG Ball Valves Ltd in December 2010 and includes building a new valve workshop and warehouse at EnerMech’s Aberdeen headquarters. The enlarged premises includes a state-of-the art test bay, featuring a remote access HD system which can be used by clients to watch live testing of valves from any location, facilities for gas, cryongenic and pressure safety valve testing and a large humidity controlled storage area.

In-house design, machining and testing capabilities mean ball valves can be delivered within a 16-18 week window while a Fast Track service can cut delivery times to 6-8 weeks when required.

EnerMech managing director, Doug Duguid, said: “Our Valves Care division will greatly benefit from this significant capital expenditure and the recruitment of high calibre personnel who have a wealth of experience in valve design, production and testing.

“We have a blueprint in place in Aberdeen to provide a level of valve care which is unrivalled in the current marketplace. Our objective is to roll that out to the major oil and gas hubs in which we operate and we will do that by a combination of organic growth and selective acquisitions, and we have identified a number of potential acquisitions which fit this strategy.

“Bob Stephen’s appointment as valves general manger gives us a tried and tested leader whose experience can guide the Valve Care division in to new markets and add considerable growth to our revenues. The other appointments and promotions will ensure the success of our UK valves business is mirrored in international markets.”
