Marine design and engineering company Houlder has strengthened its marine equipment business stream with the appointment of Paul Shaw as Director.
Created in 2012 during a restructure, Houlder’s Marine Equipment business has already had success supplying pipelaying, access, handling and support equipment to the offshore energy sector.
Mr Shaw joins Houlder with background in the energy technology and offshore cable industries. He has proved adept at delivering sustainable growth in global markets.
The appointment marks the latest development in a strategy that has seen Houlder, a UK employee owned business, more than double its headcount and turnover in the last five years.
Mr Shaw commented: “Supplying innovative marine equipment is an exciting business to be in. To join a company with Houlder’s ambition means a significant opportunity to deliver real benefits to a growing industry sector.”
He will be based in Houlder’s Tyneside office and lead a team operating globally to support energy companies, their contractors and suppliers.
