UK-based offshore equipment rental company Hiretech Limited has appointed Keith Mackie as Managing Director, with current Managing Director and company founder Andy Buchan taking on the newly created role of Chief Executive Officer.

Mackie has held a number of senior roles within the engineering and energy service industries, most recently as Managing Director at Power Jacks Limited.

Commenting on his new role, Mackie said, "I am delighted to be joining Hiretech at such an exciting time. The customer focused growth delivered through integrity, technical strength and investment is within the DNA of Hiretech and I look forward to further developing the business."

Chief Executive Officer, Andy Buchan added, "Hiretech has grown significantly over the last three years as we regenerated ourselves following the recent downturn, and we identified a requirement to further strengthen our management team as we continue to capitalize on the opportunities that the energy markets present to us."

Hiretech, a leading independent equipment rental, sales, service and maintenance company offering pumping spreads, powered umbilical reels, hydraulic power packs and supporting equipment, invested over GBP1.5m in new equipment during 2018, with a similar level of investment ongoing throughout 2019.
