Brimmond, the Aberdeenshire-based provider of hydraulic, lifting and mechanical equipment and services, has strengthened its board with the appointment of Nigel Jenkins.
Nigel, a qualified Engineer, who specialises in business improvement and growth with expertise in leadership and business management, will take on the role as non-executive director of Brimmond as the company implements its new ambitious strategy.
Brimmond recently integrated the divisions of its business by absorbing sister company Rigrun Europe. The newly unified entity is moving forward with an ambitious three-year strategy to diversify into new markets including marine, aquaculture and renewables, and achieve growth in domestic and international markets.
Brimmond Managing Director Tom Murdoch said Nigel has been critical in implementing the new strategy while working with the wider team to set viable and valuable KPIs to monitor all areas of the business.
He said: “Nigel has an outstanding business track record and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Brimmond’s board, particularly in functions and processes that grow businesses and generate revenues.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Nigel and are looking forward to his continued and increased involvement in the company as we build our brand.
“Unifying the business created a stronger organisation more capable of achieving growth in domestic and international markets. Following a successful year with our highest ever turnover of £6 million, we have been implementing specific strategies, objectives and targets to build upon our 25-year history as a leading provider of specialist hydraulic and mechanical equipment.”
Nigel added: “I am delighted to be working with Tom and the wider Brimmond team at a key time in their evolution. They have fantastic clients who genuinely value Brimmond's outstanding people, engineering skills and delivery focused ethos.
“To further develop, we have created a compelling vision underpinned by a clear market-orientated strategy with everyone in the company contributing. I am really impressed by the whole team and look forward to supporting future growth.”
The company recently rebranded to Brimmond after dropping ‘Group’ from its title and announced Tom Murdoch as Managing Director. The restructure saw him become the majority shareholder of the business started by his late father Alistair in 1996.
The rebranding and restructure followed a prosperous year for the engineering company, which announced new contracts spanning the renewables, subsea and production sectors.
