Lokring Northern – which provides advanced fluid and gas transfer connectors – has appointed Jake Rowley as technical sales engineer for Aberdeen, while Donal Heery has been promoted to technical sales manager.
The company’s client base has also significantly expanded, which has been reflected in staff numbers following an increase of 64% since 2014.
Rowley joins Lokring Northern with a first class Mechanical and Offshore Engineering degree from Robert Gordon University, and has embarked on a six month training programme with the company.
Joining Lokring Northern in 2011 as a technical sales engineer, Donal Heery utilised his civil engineering experience to provide technical sales advice to clients, and establish the Lokring brand as a trusted standard in the oil and gas, nuclear and defence industries.
In his new role, he will manage a team of sales engineers and consultants throughout the UK and Ireland.
Lokring’s technology provides a mechanical method for producing permanent pipe and tube connections and is a safer, faster, lower cost alternative to welding pipework which eliminates the need for hotwork and the associated health and safety issues.
Lokring Northern (UK) has also recently confirmed its title sponsorship of the 2016 Knockhill Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) Event, taking place on 13-14 August.
The company is also sponsoring the reigning BTCC champion, Gordon Shedden.
