Middle East - End of an Era
Paul Hayward, Pentagon Freight Services Middle East Managing Director, retired at the end of March. Paul and his family are relocating back to the UK after more than 35 years in the United Arab Emirates. We couldn’t let him leave without a send off and our talented OCTG team created the perfect platform for a final photo call.

We thank Paul for all he has done for Pentagon and wish him and his family all the very best for the future and a long, happy and healthy retirement.
