New senior positions and board appointment created at Apex Industrial Chemicals

APEX Industrial Chemicals has created eight new positions as a result of a period of sustained growth.

Gavin Hedingham, formerly of Subsea 7, takes up newly created post of general manager at Apex and Victoria Gammie, formerly of Energy Ventures, takes up the position of financial director.

Victoria Gammie also takes a seat on the board at Apex. Additional new posts include five further sales jobs across Scotland and an additional post in the finance department. Company turnover is on track to achieve 20 per cent growth in the current financial year, with new accounts increasing by 100 per month across both offshore and onshore sectors.

Newly-appointed Gavin Hedingham says: “Apex has a planned growth strategy for the coming three years. Our turnover is firmly on track to exceed the previous year’s figures by 20 per cent. Unlike many chemical suppliers, at Apex we formulate, develop and manufacture our products and we currently have around 350 formulations available to our customer base. We are investing in our production and research and development teams to continue to be a leading manufacturer and developer of products for a wide range of sectors including oil and gas, industrial, marine and transport.”

Apex expects growth from both its onshore and offshore clients and the focus of Gavin Hedingham’s role is to expand the international footprint of the company. The five new sales positions will increase domestic sales across Scotland.

Victoria Gammie’s appointment as financial director gives a structured focus for the planned growth activity. Victoria says: “As a management team we are also looking to acquire suitable, complementary companies which will grow our portfolio of products.  My background in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions will help facilitate acquisitions to drive forward the organic growth strategy.”

Apex Industrial Chemicals was established in 1982 and specialises in the manufacture and supply of specially formulated chemical products for business to business markets. From its purpose built base in Altens, Aberdeen, Apex supplies to onshore and offshore companies, currently exporting to 22 countries globally. The company’s portfolio of more than 350 products includes rig washes, descalers, dewaxers metal surface treatment products and completion fluid additives.  More about Apex can be found at
