UNITED Plant Services (UPS) has appointed three new regional managers as part of a five-year growth plan following a review and restructuring of the business.

The company provides engineering support and maintenance to heavy mechanical equipment within the mining, construction and quarry sectors.

Recently appointed managing director Greg Mulhearn has created the new roles. The new appointees include Gavin Dunsmore, who moves from workshop foreman to become regional manager Scotland. Rob Davis-Hilliard will be regional manager north after joining from Finning UK, while Jimmy Rice has been promoted from depot manager to the role of regional manager south.

Scottish regional manager Gavin Dunsmore is a qualified engineer who has been with UPS since 1997. He said, “Throughout my time with the company I have supported customers including Scottish Coal and Balfour Beatty, before joining the power generation division, and subsequently a foreman position. Each role has provided me with invaluable experience and training, which combined, has equipped me with the right skill set to take on this exciting and challenging new role.”

Gavin will assume responsibility for the Scottish engineering team as well as ongoing customer relationships, new business opportunities, safe working practices and KPI reporting.

Managing director Greg Mulhearn said, “The review and restructure of the business will enhance our customer experience. We are committed to placing customer solutions at the heart of our business and our three new regional managers will be working in close partnership with our national customer base to deliver engineering and compliance solutions to the highest levels. It is an exciting time for United Plant as we look to the future and I wish each of our regional managers every success in their new role.”
