The managing director of Aberdeen-based OEM Group has won the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award at the WeDo Scotland Entrepreneur Awards.

This follows on from Barry Park’s win at the Elevator Awards earlier this year where he was named Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year.

Park established the oil and gas and marine services firm in 2012 after spotting a gap in the market for diesel engine services, spare part procurement and fuel conditioning for the oil & gas, marine and energy sectors.

The company now has 30 employees based in offices in the UK, Australia and United Arab Emirates.

Park said: “It’s been an incredible journey so far, especially as the oil and gas sector has been going through an extremely challenging time. To enhance our offering, we streamlined our business units, OEM Engine Services, OEM Fuel Services and OEM Diesel Pty Ltd, and added OEM Middle East to form OEM Group.

“Not long after this we invested in a larger workshop facility in Scotland and won several important contracts – including a two-year award worth up to £1 million with energy services company Go Marine.”
