Employee Profile with Shawcor:
Alistair was instrumental in designing the site and creating an outstanding safety culture when the Batam facility was relocated from Batu Ampar to Kabil in 2004. Alistair's input and leadership as plant manager of Kabil from 2003 until now has resulted in Kabil establishing the reputation as a best-in-class site globally for quality, HSE, reliability and customer satisfaction. Alistair was pivotal in the planning and execution of 2 major tranches of work in 2009/10 and 2013/15 during which Kabil executed a record amount of revenue at high profitability with a near perfect HSE record.
Recognized for his key qualifications, achievements and success to the Shawcor team:
Alistair led major initiatives to create step changes in Shawcor's pipe handling processes, managing the company's first major conversion to reach stacked pipe handling in APAC (which resulted in over 3 million lifts without incident during the ''the Perfect Storm of work" in 2013-15). He has driven Kabil to lead the 'hands free initiative' which has created many low cost, locally engineered projects which remove the need for workers to interact with live pipe and equipment, increasing HSE considerably.

Classified as a role model with proven values and commitment:
Alistair is also a role model for the value Shawcor places on integrity. He insists that quality is built into our processes from the outset, he is always transparent and truly 'walks the talk' on HSE. He has enormous credibility and respect both in the company and in our customers' eyes.
The secret of success is consistency of purpose:
Shawcor Human Resources group would like to thank Alistair for his years of service. Alistair's dedication, knowledge and capabilities were of great value to our Pipeline Performance growth in global markets. HSE is the number one factor with Shawcor's pipe handling processes.
