Air Products South Africa has appointed a new Regional Manager for the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) Region in the shape of Sugene Vickernand.
Vickernand has over 20 years experience in the gases industry and ushered in the new role last week as the company hosted a breakfast briefing for media and key stakeholders to highlight its commitment to sustainability and growth in local businesses and communities through corporate social investment initiatives.
Air Products South Africa (Pty) Limited manufactures, supplies and distributes a diverse portfolio of atmospheric gases, specialty gases, performance materials, equipment and services to the Southern African region.
The KwaZulu Natal region, which consists of facilities in Pinetown, Empangeni and Newcastle, forms a large part of Air Products South Africa’s operations.
Vickernand commented, “Having served in the gas industry for 21 years in various positions and regions, I will apply the learnings of these years to the KZN region and use the experience and knowledge to create initiatives and operational efficiencies for this market. Another area of importance is to comply with all associated safety standards.”
Several major industry companies have signed an historic agreement today for the commercialisation of the Free State Helium and Natural Gas (NG) field near Welkom in South Africa.
