EnerMech Gains Rights to Gunnebo's Lifting Products for UK Offshore

Aberdeen-based EnerMech will have preferential rights to the distribution of all Gunnebo's lifting products to oil and gas industry companies working in the UK Continental Shelf area.

Gunnebo Industries is a world leader in the manufacture and marketing of lifting technologies and has developed systems for chain and lifting components that can handle weights of up to 125 tonnes.

EnerMech has emerged as a leading player in the cranes and heavy lifting market. The company provides specialist services in the operation, inspection and maintenance of cranes and lifting equipment in addition to design, engineering and management of onshore and offshore crane projects.

EnerMech operations director, Phil Bentley, said, "This agreement will boost turnover by several million pounds each year and gives us access to top quality equipment which is approved by all the major operators and contractors.

"It adds value to our lifting operations and is part of a growth strategy which matches first class products and service with an unwavering approach to maintaining health and safety standards."

EnerMech has also recruited Martin Dunbar from GTC (Cosalt) where he was client operations manager. He has been appointed UK sales manager with responsibility for rolling out the Gunnebo range to existing and new clients.

Mike Gough, managing director of Gunnebo Industries UK, said, "We already enjoy a healthy presence in the UK offshore market but we see this new deal as a major step forward for us in securing a much higher profile through a highly professional partner. It is clear that EnerMech's uncompromising stance on quality and safety fits perfectly with our own strategy."
