Dräger appoints safety industry expert to its Aberdeen operation

Draeger Marine and Offshore, a division of The Dräger Group, an international leader in the fields of medical and safety technology, has announced the appointment of Euan McIntosh as a senior manager at its Aberdeen operation.

 McIntosh, 38, whose career in safety spans 16 years, joins Dräger having held a variety of senior roles in the safety industry, including as UK Upstream General Manager of Total Safety, and having worked with many of the leading organisations in the oil and gas industry.

 He also successfully established, grew, and later sold, his own safety services business.

 McIntosh comments: “I am delighted to have joined Dräger’s Aberdeen operation. It is great to be working alongside such a talented and committed team within an organisation that is so highly regarded for its quality and service.

 “Dräger has extensive experience serving the oil, gas and offshore sectors, and there is a huge wealth of knowledge both within the team here in Aberdeen, and across the company’s global operation.

 “As the only major manufacturer of safety equipment based in Aberdeen, Dräger is ideally positioned to provide an unrivalled full service safety offering to firms operating in the oil, gas, renewables and offshore sectors.”

 Matthew Bedford, Managing Director, Dräger Safety UK adds: “It is a pleasure to welcome Euan to the Dräger team. He will be a great asset to our Aberdeen operation at an important time for our customers as many look to build new energy operations alongside more traditional oil and gas operations.

 “It is vital that the safety culture inherent within the oil and gas sector is carried over to the new energy industries of the future, and Dräger’s Aberdeen team is well-placed to support customers in this area.”

 McIntosh lives with his family in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, returning to settle where he grew up after moving to America to study.
