Doug joins following Graham Pemberton’s decision to retire from the business. Doug brings a wealth of knowledge in the energy industry to the business having worked for some of the most well-known service providers over the past 30 years.

Doug Sangster, Director- Australia said:
"As a former customer, I have always been aware of Airpac Bukom and appreciative of the high standards and consistent quality of the rental services offered.  I am delighted to have the opportunity to take over the mantle from Graham, and very much look forward to re-connecting with former colleagues and clients as we continue to develop the Australian business”. 

In his new role Doug will be based in the long-standing Perth base but will be providing support for customers across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Airpac Bukom has a strong track record for delivering high quality services across the region for a variety of applications, supporting clients on LNG, pipeline, maintenance and well testing projects. 

Haydn Davies, Managing Director, said:
“Having worked for the Vp plc group for over 25 years, it is with sadness we say goodbye to Graham as he commences his well-earned retirement. His contribution has been greatly valued and we wish him every success in the future. Doug takes on the role at an exciting time with a number of high profile projects due to commence in Australia in 2021. His experience across a variety of applications make him well placed to build on our previous successes in the region. We look forward to working with Doug in this next chapter of our development.
