Opportunities for growth
SengS recruits key figure as managing director
Based at the company’s Ellon facility, David Benison, pictured, brings nearly 30 years’ experience in senior management roles following a successful career across the subsea division of global energy services firm Aker Solutions.
Most recently, Mr Benison was head of subsea lifecycle services where he had responsibility for the service and maintenance of subsea and topside equipment for installed base assets on the UKCS.
SengS was acquired in November 2016 by Pryme Group, a provider of integrated manufacturing solutions to clients across the oil and gas, aerospace and defence industries. The business is headquartered in Dundee and has operations across the UK.
Mr Benison has taken on the managing role to drive continued growth in the subsea market through provision of engineering consultancy, mechanical and hydraulic assembly and specialist high pressure and environmental testing.
Mr Benison said: “I’m pleased to have taken on this important strategic role at such an exciting time for SengS and look forward to the chance to strengthen relationships with our customer base, develop the brand identity and identify new opportunities for growth.
“Working alongside the wider Pryme Group, the potential is there to grow SengS into a serious player within the wider subsea sector; building upon the investment made to strengthen the business’ existing capabilities over recent years.”
Angus Gray, CEO at Pryme Group, said: “David’s expertise and extensive network across the oil and gas industry will create opportunities for the business to move up the supply chain and deal directly with operators and other top-tier customers more frequently.”
