David Lamont was named operations manager of Bellingham Marine’s New Zealand division.

He will be responsible for the operations of the East Tamaki production facility, as well as assisting with on-site management.

“I am happy to be back in New Zealand and working with the Bellingham Marine team here,” Lamont said in a statement. “The division is currently in the middle of several important projects, and I look forward to building on the recent successes.”

Lamont joined Bellingham in 2003 as part of the company’s operational team with an objective to study, implement and improve manufacturing and construction systems to allow expansion of the company in overseas markets.

In 2004, he moved from New Zealand to Spain to set up and supervise the production and installation of the company’s first European project in Barcelona. In 2008, he moved to Costa Rica to support Bellingham’s operations in Central America, and in 2010 he moved to Xiamen to assist Bellingham’s expansion into China.
