NSG strengthens team with appointment of new general manager

Posted 06 June 2011

Leading scaffolding and industrial services firm NSG UK has announced the appointment of Tim Walker as general manager.

Tim has been with the company for 11 years, joining straight from Nottingham Trent University after gaining a BSc Honours degree and a post graduate certificate in Management.

In his new role as general manager, Tim will work with managing director Mike Carr to oversee the day to day running of NSG UK at its Deeside headquarters and support the strategic direction of the business.

Tim started his career with NSG UK's administration department at Ratcliffe Power Station in Nottingham. He then spent four years as project manager, working across the nuclear, construction, pharmaceutical and power generation fields, before moving to NSG's Runcorn office as commercial manager, looking after key clients Ineos Chlor Vinyls and Ineos Enterprises. Tim was also responsible for managing NSG's satellite offices across the North West.

Managing director Mike Carr said: "NSG UK has a proven track record in developing our workforce and recognising the achievements of employees, and we always look to recruit from within where possible. Tim has worked his way up to become an integral part of our continued growth. He has excellent project management skills and has built up strong client relationships. Tim's appointment will bolster our ability to manage a wide variety of projects and bring best value to our clients."

Tim added: "I am delighted to be appointed as general manager and to be able to play a part in expanding the business. NSG UK is enjoying a sustained period of stability and growth under an excellent team of directors, and we are developing opportunities across a wide range of sectors including oil and gas, transport, nuclear and social housing."

Deeside based NSG UK is a leading provider of scaffolding, painting, blasting, thermal insulation and building repairs, with over 40 years of experience. It has continued to win new business and retain clients despite the harsh economic conditions affecting the construction industry. The business increased turnover by 10pc over the past year to £18million and counts some of the construction sector's biggest names - such as Corus, Lilly, Balfour Beatty, Laing O'Rourke and Ineos Chlor Vinyls - as clients.

NSG works in a variety of sectors, maintaining growth over the last year in the construction and engineering sectors while expanding into the rail, social housing, marine and off-shore, oil and gas, and nuclear sectors.
