Profile – Gavin Engelsman
We would like to also take this opportunity to welcome Mr. Gavin Engelsman to our technical team; he is a GRP Specialist and brings with him a wealth of experience as our Technology Manager.
Jan Krüger has also moved from our sales department and now heads up our Technical Department. Jan’s first task as Technical Manager has been to enhance our Field Services division and we can now proudly say that we on-site for 70% of all GRP installations. Our aim is to get to 100%.
Our main objective for onsite visibility is to not only train all of the staff on the ground but to ensure that they are constantly installing GRP Pipes correctly. This in turn promotes the longevity of the pipeline in the ground to approximately 50 years. The lifespan of the pipeline can be extended to as long as 120 years should the installation be carried out as per requirements laid out in our Installation Guide.
