EnerMech names new head for mechanical handling services in UK

Engineering services specialist EnerMech has appointed Chris Dixon as director of UK Mechanical Handling Services.

EnerMech said on Thursday that Dixon would enhance the Aberdeen-headquartered engineering services group’s delivery of cranes and lifting, hydraulics, and training services to the UK and European energy sector.

The company’s Regional Director for Europe, Phil Bentley, said: “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 & 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 optimized 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.”

To remind, at the beginning of 2017, EnerMech entered the electrical and instrumentation (E&I) sector with the acquisition of EPS Group in Australia and the Americas.
