A Dyce-based oil and gas equipment sales and rental supplier has made two senior management appointments to strengthen its business operations.
John Milne has been promoted to general manager at Hiretech Ltd, while Jim McGregor joins the company as project manager.
Milne, who has 27 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, joined Hiretech in 2014 as engineering manager. Following this promotion, he is now responsible for overseeing the company’s day to day operations, including co-ordinating equipment schedules, resources and staff.
McGregor brings with him 36 years of global oil and gas experience, most of which has been spent in employment at an oil service company.
These latest appointments follow the recruitment of Steven Ferguson as business development manager last year.
Set up in 2010, Hiretech has a 5-acre site with dedicated facilities.
Meanwhile, MiTech, an Aberdeen-based pipework set-up and measurement software developer, has recently secured new contracts worth at least £100,000 for its bespoke automet™ system.
Automet enables direct transfer of design information from plant design systems, which can then be compared with survey data to give fast and accurate certificates of conformity.
Mike Lloyd, MiTech managing director, added: “It also allows a reliable, safe and cost effective way of replacing existing – or installing new – pipe and steelwork by removing the requirement for hot work.”
Earlier this year mltech completed its first training contract in pipe spool surveying and dimensional control for Ocean Kinetics at its Lerwick facility.
