Buchan workers recognised for service

BUCHAN employees were recognised for their loyalty and hard work recently at OEG Offshore.

26 members of staff were presented with awards at a team BBQ held in recognition of them collectively reaching more than the double century, during service, most recently with OEG Offshore and previously with Vertec Engineering and Containental Offshore – which merged to form the new company in February 2010.

Among those who have been recognised for their long service is finishing shop chargehand Alan Buchan, 47, and fabrication manager James McDonald, 43, both from Peterhead, who were each awarded for ten years’ service. Management accountant Linda Scott, 32, from Nether Kinmundy was recognised for five years of service.

John Heiton, Chief Executive of OEG, said: “These long service awards are an opportunity for us to recognise staff who have dedicated many years to the company, in its former state as Vertec Engineering and Containental Offshore and since the merger of the two businesses to form OEG Offshore.

“At OEG we try to provide our staff with a positive, challenging environment in which to operate. Working together as a team has played a crucial role in us becoming the successful company that we are today and we are proud to have a large number of staff who continue to want to work for us.”
