NUCORE Group, a specialist engineering company that provides safety products and services for hazardous environments has made two senior promotions as it ramps up for further growth and the restoration of pre-pandemic trading levels.
John Moore and Russell Bell take on new roles in the company as product line directors.

He has more than 35 years’ unbroken experience in the fire, safety and security sector, working locally, nationally, and internationally in field engineer, project engineer and operations manager roles.
The appointments are to support Nucore Group’s strategic growth plans which will see it invest in people, R&D, systems and its rental fleet.
“Russell and John will be instrumental in growing Nucore Group’s business nationally and internationally across all the sectors we operate in, including renewables, marine, oil & gas, petrochemical and the public and private sectors,” said Phil Davie, Chief Operating Officer.
