We are delighted to announce the appointment of Bob Taylor as the new General Manager for the Cylinder Service Centre.

Bob Taylor General ManagerBob brings to the business more than 33 years of experience within the heavy engineering and shipbuilding industry - much of which has been in management or commercial roles. 

This new appointment follows on from the acquistion of the business by the Benbecula Group earlier this year.

Former Managing Director Gary Davison is still part of the business in the role of Technical Manager. 

This adjustment means a seamless handover to the new management and an uninterrupted continuation of the excellent service our customers have come to expect.

Bob started his working life as a time served fitter in shipbuilding, just like many of the engineering team within our business.

He then moved into Quality Assurance for a spell before transferring into the Estimating Department as a trainee estimator. After 6 years in estimating Bob was ready to take on the more challenging ship repair accounts. His potential was quickly recognised and he was duly promoted to the estimating departmental manager.

His next move was a natural step up to the position of Commercial Manager which he held until his move into the new role at The Cylinder Service Centre.

On his appointment Bob said: 'I am delighted to accept the position of General Manager of The Cylinder Service Centre and see a great opportunity to further grow the business in conjunction with the other companies within the Benbecula Group.'
