He will also build on the successes of Red Spider's PowerBall™ and eMOTION™ technologies as well as introducing new additions to product lines across Europe and West Africa.

Mr. Killoh said, "I am very excited to join Red Spider as the company enters a period of accelerated growth. I have been working in the completion sector for many years and look forward to working with Red Spider's team of industry respected experts."

Steve Nicol, Chief Executive Officer, said, "Barry has vast experience introducing new products to markets and developing customer bases in Europe and Africa which will help us to continue our expansion throughout these key growth regions. We have recently strengthened our sales team in the UK with the appointment of two new sales engineers and Barry is a welcomed addition to our growing team."
