This follows the acquisition of BETA Machinery Analysis, a Calgary-based engineering consultancy specialising in advanced vibration analysis, and will include the opening of a Southampton office in January 2016.
Mark Hutchinson will become operations manager of Wood Group’s UK vibration team. Jonathon Baker joins as sales and business development manager and Rob Swindell will take on the role of R&D and technical authority.
Bob MacDonald, Chief Executive, Wood Group Kenny, said: “The acquisition of BETA in June this year complemented Wood Group’s existing all-of-facility integrity management capability. Developing a dedicated team in the UK strengthens the investment we have made in our recent acquisition as part of a long term strategy to expand this technical service line globally.
