50 new jobs to be added to Aberdeen firms Scottish workforce
Up to 50 new jobs will be created at its Aberdeen base, increasing its Scottish workforce to 290 with the remainder being created either in England or outside the UK.
Proserv said it expects turnover for the 2011 financial year ending December to be up 18 per cent to s113 million, against s96 million a year earlier and is forecasting growth of 20 per cent for the 2012 year.
Chief executive David Lamont said Proserv has benefited from the consolidation of five subsidiaries last year under a new management structure.
The five businesses brought under the Proserv banner last year were Proserv Technology, Proserv Offshore, Hydrafit Subsea, all located in Aberdeenshire, and Houston-based Gilmore Valve and Argus Subsea.
Lamont said: "Since the merger, we have seen significant growth in our business due to our increased capabilities and expertise, particularly in the drilling, production, subsea and decommissioning sectors.
"We forecast even stronger results for 2012, having secured a number of new contracts and, as a result,we will be building on our current global workforce of almost 800 people by a further 17 per cent next year to support our current order book and strong sales pipeline.
"This reinforces our ambitious plans for future accelerated expansion and to meet demand for our enhanced portfolio of complimentary products and services to clients globally."
