Celebrating 25 years of Kevin Puckett!

by Chris Jones 07/08/2015 filed under General News


After being decorated for defending queen and country throughout the 80’s Kevin turned his attentions to the UK drilling industry. From our base here in Gloucester he became a driller operating, as we do now, across the UK and Channel Islands. His success as a driller saw him move over to drilling management where he was instrumental in the development of the multipurpose rigs that we call Pioneers and are common throughout our industry today.



During his many years of successful drilling management Kevin employed many of the inspirational and dynamic drilling professionals that we are proud to have with us in a variety of roles today.

Kevin’s enthusiasm to positively impact our operations inspired him to undertake health and safety qualifications.


As Geotechnical Engineering Ltd grew as a company Kevin stepped into the role of Health and Safety advisor, overseeing everything we do on site and at our Gloucester base.


Having completed 25 years with us, and now moving into his 26th year, Kevin is one of the industry’s most experienced people. He hasn’t quite seen it all yet and is look forward to what is to come.


He comments:


“It is amazing to think that I have been here for 25 years. It seems like just yesterday I was loading my drilling kit into a Landrover and heading over to Jersey to drill.


Looking back I can see that all the effort over the years has been worth it. We have evolved as a company and as an industry. We now not only have our operations to be proud of but also our safety culture too.


We never stop striving to improve how we operate here at Geotechnical and now is an exciting time.  A lot of progress made and there is a lot more to come.


Watch out for another update on my 50th anniversary!!”
