NUCORE Group Launched With Appointment Of New CEO

A new group company NUCORE has been established in Aberdeen to create an engineering services group. It currently comprises two complementary trading companies, Oteac Limited and HVAC and Refrigeration Engineering Limited (HVAC&R).

Nucore Group, backed by Lonsdale Capital Partners Ltd, has appointed Graham Thomson as its CEO. Graham spent twenty-two years with Sparrows Offshore, was a member of the Executive Board, and lived for a number of years in the UAE and USA working in the oil and gas industry. Latterly he was Chief Operating Officer for ACE Winches in the UK.

Graham said: "NUCORE is a byword for innovation and quality in the oil, gas, marine and petrochemical industry and the enthusiasm and commitment of the stakeholders to continual investment in their products and people was instrumental in me joining what I consider to be a first class customer-focused business.

The group continues to win new work despite the difficult conditions in the oil and gas sector and I believe there is further potential to internationalise Oteac`s presence by building on HVAC&R`s more established international footprint."

Graham added: "I look forward to leading the team as we set even more challenging and demanding targets as we head into 2017, maximising opportunities along with extending our international footprint and growing turnover."
