GR Engineering Services Limited (ASX: GNG) (GR Engineering) announces that its founding Director, Mr Barry Patterson, has passed away. Barry co-founded GR Engineering and was instrumental in establishing the core team of individuals in 1986 that took the business from its roots as a Kalgoorlie based contractor to the multi-national mineral processing design and construction contractor that it is today.
Barry served as Non-Executive Chairman of GR Engineering upon its ASX listing in 2011 and remained on the board as a Non-Executive Director since 2013. Barry graduated from the WA School of Mines in 1968 with a mining engineering degree. Over his career, Barry acted as a director of Sonic Healthcare (1993 – 2010), Dacian Gold (2012 – 2020), Silex Systems (1992 – 2010), Macmahon Holdings (1994 – 1997) and Lyreco (2003 – 2004).
Barry leaves a substantial legacy at GR Engineering, in the WA mining industry, as a WA businessman, philanthropist and family man. The Board of GR Engineering expresses its deepest sympathies to the Patterson family for their loss.
