Aberdeen-based company EnerMech, an provider of mechanical engineering services to the international energy industry, has appointed Chris Dixon as director of its new UK Mechanical Handling Services division.
EnerMech says the appointment will enhance the group’s delivery of its cranes and lifting, hydraulics and training services to the UK and European energy sector. According to Phil Bentley, EnerMech regional director for Europe, “Chris Dixon brings with him a wealth of experience in the mechanical handling services sector, both in the UK and overseas, working latterly with Stork and before that with Sparrows across a range of executive roles over a 24-year period.
“Our newly created Mechanical Handling Services business line merges the management of our cranes and lifting, hydraulics and training services divisions, allowing us to offer a more integrated service to the wider energy market. Chris will work closely with global business line director, John Morrison, to deliver this integrated solution.
“Over the last 15 months we have optimised the talent we have within EnerMech and recruited where necessary to strengthen our skills base, while improving our systems and investing in new technology to enhance our long-term performance.
