Cochran Boilers crop up everywhere…

Date: 06/02/2019

Last year we were contacted by a wreck diver from the Netherlands who dived on an unknown wreck in the North Sea and found a Data Plate that came off one of our boilers! We are currently trying to see if we can find the boiler records to help identify the wreck in the North Sea.

Appointment of a new Cochran Training Manager

Date: 05/02/2019

At the end of last year Cochran bade farewell to one of our stalwarts, Bill Higgins. Bill had been with Cochran for over 30 years, initially as a key member of our service team, but in more recent years as our Training Manager. In this role Bill flourished and became known across the length and breadth of the UK, carrying out training from Shetland to Cornwall and everywhere inbetween, not to mention many overseas excursions. During his 7 years as Training Manager Bill grew Cochran’s training revenue 4 fold and trained literally 1000’s of managers, technicians and operators on the safe and efficient operation of boiler plant. He’ll be missed by customers and colleagues but it is time for Bill to enjoy a long and happy retirement.
