Meet the team at SGS Baseefa

Back in November 2016 SGS Baseefa appointed their new Operations Manager Mr Phil Oates. Phil has an extensive background in the explosive atmospheres industry. To find out more about Phil please read the full article here.

I was appointed to the position of Operations Manager in November last year after spending time as a Certification Engineer with the company.

Since 1975 I have worked in the Explosive Atmospheres industry, primarily within manufacturing. As the vast majority of our customers are manufacturers I feel I can relate to the issues that you have especially regarding the interaction with test and certification bodies such as SGS Baseefa.

Recently we have carried out some internal re-organisation in order to provide a more customer focussed approach. This should result in faster turnaround times for quotes and testing/certification activities, whilst retaining our focus on quality and integrity.

We welcome feedback regarding our services and, if I can be of any assistance with regard to any issues you may have, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

I am looking forward to leading the company and I am confident that we will continue to provide high quality, cost effective testing, certification and training services to our current and future customers.
