R&M Engineering (R&M), the integrated engineering and fabrication and offshore construction specialist, has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Colin Maver as Managing Director.

Maver was Group Director of Dron & Dickson for 16 years, gaining extensive market experience in UK, Brazil and UAE. He will assist R&M to capitalise upon strong growth opportunities in both existing and new markets.

Commenting on his appointment, Maver says, “I am delighted to be joining the R&M team at a time when we are ready to take our specialist solutions to new markets. Our services enable R&M to support major tier one engineering contractors, as well as providing primary and secondary structural and specialist piping fabrications. Coupled with R&M’s values of recognising differing needs and preferences of each type of customer has made it an easy decision to join the team. There is undoubted growth potential as we look to develop a range of services and with the strong leadership team in place, it is an exciting time to join the company.”

R&M has developed a range of service offerings including Laser Survey and Scanning, Design, Engineering, Fabrication and Offshore Construction.

Current Managing Director, Alan McLean, will move into the Commercial Director role having steered R&M through substantial growth during his 32 years with the company.

McLean says, “At a turning point in the industry, we decided it would be a good time to bring some more expertise aboard to further complement the great team that exists within the company. Colin’s appointment will allow me to focus on our client requirements and the complexities of ever-more demanding technical scopes. We must have the ability to be highly adaptable, and we are mindful that given the growth in field life extensions, and resultant lower production rates that follow, a different mind-set is required.”

Throughout his career, Maver has played an integral role in domestic and international expansion, steering overseas growth and opening new offices in South Africa, Brazil, US and UAE.

R&M Chairman, Doug Sedge, adds, “We are incredibly pleased to have secured Colin’s expertise at a time when the business is ready to be driven forward. With our strong leadership team, specialist expertise and in-house ability, his appointment is at an opportune time.”

R&M Engineering was established in 1979 and employs 80 staff.
