BCAS appoints Atlas Copco’s Mark Ranger as its new vice president

27 June, 2019

The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) has appointed Mark Ranger, business line manager, Oil-Free Air at Atlas Copco as its new vice president. He will join Jason Morgan, BCAS president in ensuring the society continues to evolve to meet the needs of its members and compressed air end-users, with a particular focus on providing quality training and development.

A BCAS Board member for the past two years and chair of the Compressor Committee for over six years, Ranger brings a wealth of experience to the role, gained over more than 35 years in the compressed air industry, working for both distribution and manufacturer organisations. “An important part of BCAS’ role is to ensure that standards are upheld and to promote the safe and efficient use of compressed air and vacuum products and systems,” he said. “I will therefore be supporting Jason to further enhance our training and development offer, for both our members and industry users, particularly in the areas of legislation and standards.”

Ranger added: “The society already offers a wealth of training on important regulations such as the Pressure Systems’ Safety Regulations (PSSR) and competent examiner courses, supported by impartial advice on areas including compressed air efficiency, air treatment and air quality best practice to name a few. I look forward to working with the Board to ensure that BCAS continues to act as an important source of impartial information to the industry as a whole, including our own members and end-users.”

Vanda Jones, executive director for BCAS said: “Mark has already played a vital role as a Board member for the past two years. I am delighted to welcome him to his new position and look forward to working closely with him. At this time of Brexit uncertainty, the society plays an even more important role in helping advise both members and end-users on legislation. We have an active input into proposed UK and European legislation and standards, which means we can help customers to understand their obligations and be compliant, however large or small their operation. Mark’s extensive industry experience will help us to shape the society for the future and to support our members further still.”

Ranger will transition to the position of BCAS president in November 2020 at the annual BCAS ball, following Jason Morgan’s two-year term in the role.
