Draeger to continue North Sea safety investments despite Covid-19

By JP Casey

Safety equipment manufacturer Draeger has announced plans to continue investment at its Aberdeen office to improve operational safety, in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The company’s Aberdeen base contains the country’s largest supply of direct-to-customer safety equipment, with over 1,600 items, ranging from breathing apparatus to gas detection hardware. Draeger also announced the appointment of David Donaldson to lead its marine and offshore office, based in Aberdeen. Donaldson will head up projects including the installation of 120 new wireless gas detectors at North Sea facilities by November.

“Despite the great challenges that face the oil and gas industry as a result of Covid-19, there is growing optimism for the future, particularly amongst medium-sized organisations that are large and robust enough to weather the storm, but small and nimble enough to respond to new and emerging opportunities that the current crisis is presenting,” said Donaldson. “We see real opportunity in this area of the market, and look forward to playing our part in supporting future growth here as business starts to resume.”
