Specialist Services Does The Right Thing, Puts Its People and The Community First Through Key Initiatives

Specialist Services, part of Centurion Middle East & North Africa (Centurion MENA), continues to put its people first through key social initiatives.

To support employees’ health, the Specialist Services team organised a free flu shot campaign for those who wished to get vaccinated, and supported Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a series of informative events and free examinations held by a doctor from the Aster Clinic in the UAE.

The Specialist Services team also celebrated Diwali – the five-day festival of lights celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world – in their UAE and India offices by wearing traditional clothing, making a Rangoli and distributing traditional Indian sweets. Employees also took part in the Dubai Fitness Challenge throughout November – a collaborative fitness event encouraging 30 minutes of exercise every day.

By undertaking these important initiatives, Specialist Services continues to ensure the wellbeing of their most important asset – their people.

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.”
