US-based rotary piling equipment specialist Bay Shore has said that it is targeting Europe, the Middle East and Australia in its drive to increase its sales volume by 30% this year.
According to recently appointed UK and Europe business development manager Paul McIntyre, the ambitious target is part of Bay Shore’s five year development plan.
McIntyre’s appointment was made alongside recruitment of Glenn Leighton to a similar role for the Australian market and Matthew Bratton who is focused on developing other international markets.
Speaking about the recruiments, chief sales officer Valerie Cobb said: “This is a great time to be with Bay Shore, with multiple new initiatives and a product roadmap in place that aligns with a fast-growing market. The diversity of skill sets in the growing Bay Shore team is a direct reflection of the evolving drilling market landscape and its mandate to provide product and technological innovations to continue to meet our customer’s demands.”
According to McIntyre, who has previously worked for Van Elle, Balfour Beatty and ESG (now Socotec), Bay Shore sees huge potential in the UK market for the rotary piling capabilities offered by its equipment.
“Bay Shore developed its range to meet the needs of the US power market,” he said. “The rigs are cost effective in terms of specification and have potential to allow UK piling contractors to efficiently meet the need for rotary piling on projects such as HS2.”
McIntyre also confirmed that Bay Shore is working on a CFA piling range to meet the needs of the UK market.
