A Teesside engineering business has appointed new directors as its reputation grows internationally.
Stokesley-based ProSalus has two new directors, both from the local area, who will assist with the company’s continued worldwide growth in the gas and chemical sectors.
Dick Greenock, from Thirsk, joins ProSalus as a director bringing with him a wealth of experience in the chemical sector having worked as an operations director for a major, national chemical business.
ProSalus has also appointed Steve Heighton, from Stockton, as a director with a specialism in the gas sector having spent many years working as a senior site engineer.
In addition to the new recruits, one of ProSalus’s team has also received a prestigious award.
Faye Austick has boosted ProSalus’s recent success by being named as Middlesbrough College’s ‘Best Business Apprentice’. Faye, who joined ProSalus two years ago as business administrator, is currently working toward her NVQ level 5 in business management.
ProSalus is one of the UK’s only independent technical safety consultancies and specialises in the implementation and compliance of safety standards working in sectors such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceutical, fine chemicals, power, waste management and foodstuffs.
The company has an international reputation spanning 15 years- working with multi-nationals such as Shell, BP, GlaxoSmithKline, Scottish Power, National Grid, Marathon Oil, Ineos, British Gas and Total- and has developed a range of software tools designed to help companies comply with functional safety and process safety legislation.
ProSalus was established by husband and wife team, Colin and Carol Easton, from Stokesley, and now employs a team of 10 at its headquarters at the Springboard Business Centre at Stokesley Business Park as well as a number of associates who deliver courses in countries including the USA, Australia and Singapore as well as throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle and Far East.
Managing director Colin Easton said: “ProSalus has certainly seen a steady increase in the need for its niche services which are in huge demand as accreditations and regulations become ever more necessary in the process industry.
“Our new team reinforces our international reputation as we have grown from being a small, family-run operation to a global business. We are now able to take on many more varied projects which will provide a huge boost for the company as we further our growth plans.”
