EnerMech has appointed Steve Swanson as head of cranes and lifting in Africa.

Swanson has more than 40 years of experience in crane maintenance and operations and has held several senior roles within the sector.

Swanson will be based at EnerMech’s recently enhanced premises in Luanda, Angola. The facility comprises classrooms, an on-site simulator, and a practical facility.

EnerMech explained that the appointment follows a series of project wins in the region, and the company hopes Swanson’s appointment will support its growth.

Ross McHardy, regional director of Europe and Africa for EnerMech, said: “As we accelerate our growth across Africa, the business is perfectly placed to leverage Steve’s knowledge and experience to drive our cranes and lifting services in the country. We are in a very fortunate position to attract someone of his calibre with such great connections and a deep understanding of the market and its demands.”
