Joe McGhee, Foreman Piping Repair and Fabrication

I completed my Pipe Fitting Apprenticeship in Scotland in 1971 and worked for 35 years in the petrochemical, mechanical and ship repair industries. During those years, I worked on off-shore oil rigs on the North Sea, Scotland and Stavanger Norway doing pipe repair, reconfiguration, hook-up, maintenance and shutdowns. In 1993 before immigrating to Canada, I was involved in the construction, maintenance of on-shore Refineries and Desalination Plants in the Middle East, Scotland and Western Australia. After moving to Canada in 1994 I worked as a mechanical pipe fitter in gold mines in Mongolia, Russia, Yukon and Alaska. I joined Meridian Marine in 2000 accepting the position as Foreman, of the Piping Fabrication Division overlooking the quality and procedures of all pipe work.
