International liquid handling and pump specialist PG Flow Solutions has appointed Roy Rødningen as its new Managing Director as from 1 February. He succeeds Steve Paulsen.
Roy Rødningen has more than 30 years’ management experience in engineering, manufacturing, construction and other industrial activities.
Rødningen joins PG Flow Solutions from a role as Managing Director of steel construction supplier PCS Stokke Stål. Prior to this, he held Managing Director roles at naval architect and marine engineering company Brevik Engineering and Fenner Mandals which is a producer of lay-flat hose with export all over the world.
He has also spent a decade with international drilling technology supplier Aker MH / MH Wirth (now HMH), when it was part of oil services group Aker Solutions. Rødningen has also spent time in managerial positions at NOV and Hydralift.
“Roy has broad industry experience and solid know-now from leading and developing companies with engineering, manufacturing and construction at the core of their business. This is PG Flow Solutions in a nutshell. We are delighted that Roy has joined the company as managing director,” said Stig Olav Bjørkedal, Chairman of PG Flow Solutions’ board of directors
Rødningen succeeds former CEO Steve Paulsen, who last year informed PG Flow Solutions’ board of directors that he wanted to pursue opportunities outside the company after year-end 2021. He headed up PG Flow Solutions for just over six years, first as COO and then as CEO from 2018 onwards.
“Steve played a key role in successfully transforming PG Flow Solutions from being a supplier primarily to the marine and offshore industries, to also becoming a trusted supplier of innovative pump and liquid handling solutions to the aquaculture industry and land-based industries such as wastewater. We are grateful for his excellent contribution over many years,” said Stig Olav Bjørkedal.
PG Flow Solutions provides proprietary solutions, systems and products for companies within aquaculture, maritime industries, energy sectors and land-based process industries. The company’s headquarters and manufacturing facility is located in Sande, Vestfold, Norway.
