The Board of Specialist Services Group and of Labtech Services Limited are pleased to welcome aboard Paul Duncan as the new Managing Director of Labtech Services Limited in Aberdeen.

He comes with outstanding credentials and brings a great depth of knowledge and experience in business development across Europe and North America.”

For almost three decades Paul held a number of senior management positions and developed a strong commercial and operational background in the energy and oil and gas sectors across Europe and North America. In his most recent role, Paul held the positions of Operations Director and Senior Management Team member at Dominion Technology Gases Ltd, with headquarters in Aberdeen and offices in Norway, West Africa and Singapore. During this period the business invested significantly in expanding their rental fleet of gas quads and completed an important facility upgrade to the Aberdeen production and laboratory facilities. These initiatives underpinned a period of strong performance.
Prior to Dominion, Paul has been working for 25 years in the energy rental sector with Power and HVAC packaged solutions providers within industrial, utility and oil and gas markets across North America and Europe. During that period he lived and worked in Canada, USA and Europe, where he was responsible for business start-ups and business development first for Aggreko and later on for Energyst CAT Rental.
The appointment of Paul Duncan represents an important milestone for Labtech within the Group expansion strategy. “Paul’s extensive experience and oil and gas background is going to be pivotal in the next stage of growth for Labtech and the wider Specialist Services Group,” said Ian Rogers.
Paul Duncan took up his new post on 18th August in Aberdeen.
“Whilst the search for Paul was being conducted, the business was placed under the able stewardship of Chris McGeehan as Interim Managing Director, and I am pleased to be able to advise that Chris has agreed to continue his relationship with Labtech and the Specialist Services Group as a non-executive Director of Labtech, an appointment that will be formalised in the near future. I would like to wish both gentlemen every success in their new roles,” concluded Ian Rogers.
