Norway-based boat handling system and specialized davit supplier Vestdavit has appointed Andy James as Director of Operations for the U.K.

Andy James served 25 years in the Royal Navy as an engineer, including working ashore as a workshop manager in a shipyard and as a project manager for new equipment. At the VT Group (later BAE) he helped implement and provide a fully commercial model of support to a fleet of six RN warships.

Rolf Andreas Wigand, Managing Director, Vestdavit, said, “The U.K. is an increasingly important market for the high quality boat handling systems we provide, both for warships and for the offshore energy industries. Andy James is an experienced marine engineer with a naval background who understands the needs of procurement authorities, how yards work and what operators need. He will supplement our existing agencies by providing a technically competent point of contact for Vesdavit’s customers in the U.K. and its sphere of influence and help us develop new markets.”
