ATR Group, the global equipment specialist has announced the strengthening of its management team with three senior appointments supporting its drive to double its turnover over the coming three years.
The move is part of the Aberdeen-headquartered company’s ambitious drive to grow its turnover to £150million in the next three years. ATR recently made a step-change in its operating structure with the creation of five dedicated business units to capitalise on the growth opportunities in key sectors of the oil and gas industry.
Dave Grant has been appointed Group business development director to lead the next stage of our growth plan. The former head of global business development at Coates Offshore, he has more than a decades experience in the oil and gas sector both in the UKCS and overseas.
Following the acquisition of Underwater Engineering Services Limited (UES) in June 2012, Duncan Duthie has joined ATR as divisional director for UES. A former director of James Fisher Offshore Ltd, he is tasked with developing and expanding our offering into the market.
Completing the new appointments is Derek Sinclair who has joined ATR to lead the rapidly expanding marine division. Previously the chief executive officer of Survival Craft Inspectorate and managing director of Falck Nutec UK, he brings a wealth of industry knowledge and senior management experience to the business.
Chief executive Keith Moorhouse said: “We have experienced sustained growth both in the UK and internationally across all divisions of our business in the last 18 months and with the integration of ATR and the Cosalt business now completed, we are ready to drive ahead with the next stage of our growth strategy.
“We have built our business on the ability to provide our clients with access to equipment and expertise wherever they are doing business. Our growth means we can provide our services to customers all over the world, even those operating in the most remote areas.
“These appointments demonstrate our determination to continue to deliver for all of our stakeholder groups. This underlines the success we have achieved to date and prepares the way for our continued expansion in the future.”
ATR Group is the market leader in the rental, sale and inspection of specialised equipment to the petrochemicals, marine, subsea and the offshore oil and gas industry.
