Innovation helps Specialist Services lead through challenging times

With a proactive approach, throughout these challenging times, Specialist Services has been continuously working on innovative solutions that maximise efficiency for our clients, while optimising costs, as clients are hugely price conscious in these uncertain times.

Ian Rogers, CEO, and Chris Ridley, Group Sales and Marketing Director, speak to OGN about the changes in demand in the Oil & Gas industry and the company’s proactive and innovative approach in addressing these changes to better serve our clients. They also discuss about the Specialist Services’ forward-thinking approach in addressing the increasing demands for specific products in other industries, such security and defence, renewables, vessels and others.

Within this ADNOC Review issue of OGN, Chris Ridley also talks about Specialist Services’ long-term call-off contract with ADNOC Offshore for all accommodation upgrades and refurbishment works for a period of five years.

While continuing our development and expansion in the Middle East, Europe and Asia, we have recently completed also the acquisition of rental assets from HB Rentals outside the Americas, which include offshore accommodation modules and Zone rated office modules. Leading through challenging times, we have no plans to slow down, as further growth and expansion strategies are already underway.

Specialist Services acquires rental assets of HB Rentals outside the Americas

Further to the continuous development and expansion of Specialist Services Group in Europe, Middle East and Asia, this month we have completed the acquisition of rental assets of HB Rentals outside the Americas for an undisclosed sum.

HB Rentals have serviced their clients with this fleet of offshore accommodation modules and Zone rated office modules from their two locations in Aberdeen in the UK and Abu Dhabi in the UAE. “That geographic footprint, as well as their high quality assets, are very similar to our own rental fleet, but we believe in the value add of acquiring a sizable quantity of 8 man offshore ABS certified accommodation modules. These units significantly increase our capacity to offer larger temporary living quarter solutions in Europe, Middle East and Asia,” said Ian Rogers, Chief Executive Officer at Specialist Services Group.

Along with the rental assets comes a series of new and existing customers, who have been renting these modular buildings from HB Rentals. These assets, contracts and customers are now all part of the Specialist Services Group business since Monday, 12th October 2020.

Specialist Services founding Director, Philip Bond, concluded: “I am pleased that we have bought these assets from HB Rentals. This will strengthen our rental business and having done it in the current market conditions says a lot about Specialist Services Group and our team.”

New Regional Office in the Netherlands

Further to the continuous development and expansion of Specialist Services Group in Europe, we are adding sales and technical support staff for the region. The team will be based in our new offices in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, complementing our existing yard and rental fleet in Holland.

“This new regional office marks another important milestone at Specialist Services Group. As we further penetrate the European and North Sea market, we are able to better support our Clients from two facilities with offices, yards and rental fleet in this region—Labtech in Aberdeen (UK) and now also from Rotterdam,” said Ian Rogers, Chief Executive Officer at Specialist Services Group.

The new office is located in Albert Plesmanweg, Waalhaven area, and includes office space for our regional Sales and Technical Support Team.

“Supported by our Engineering and Manufacturing capabilities in Dubai and New Delhi, this new facility brings significant benefits to the Group by providing BRMs and Modular Hire solutions at competitive rates for immediate delivery, as well as other products from our Buildings, Drilling, Testing, Production and Process Equipment ranges. These are also complemented by refurbishment works, as well as a responsive call out service and maintenance works,” said Chris Ridley, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Specialist Services Group.
