The Metzke team were proud to gather together to acknowledge the retirement of Vaughan Burt and to celebrate his career.

The team recognised Vaughan’s service to the drilling contracting industry and the development of the globally recognised Metzke Made range of drilling equipment.

Vaughan spoke fondly of his lifelong involvement in the drilling industry. He said “it’s a game like no other” and that his most cherished and valued memories have been the many people, friendships, and characters he has met along the journey.

Whilst Vaughan has stepped down as a director of Metzke, he is looking forward to being a frequent visitor to the Metzke facilities and keeping in touch with all the team - some of which have been with Vaughan for over 30 years.

To Vaughan and his wife Elizabeth, the Metzke team wish you a long and happy retirement.
