Workspace specialists, Space Solutions, have announced a record breaking first quarter, ahead of their departure to exhibit at international oil and gas conference, OTC, in Texas, USA.
Known in Scotland for its work with the major oil and gas players the Aberdeen headquartered firm has revealed that turnover in the north east has increased by over 30% compared to this time last year; booking over £7million of work in the first quarter alone. This has been attributed to a mix of factors including international expansion, which has seen personnel operating in Oman, Kurdistan and Paris.
In response to growing customer demand, the firm has increased its head count by 23% in the past 12 months, which included the appointment of sector specialists such as Bob Williamson and Paul Galbraith.
Commenting on the strong first quarter, managing director Steve Judge said:
“It’s been a good year for Space Solutions. One that has seen us complete significant projects both at home and abroad; something that we anticipate doing more of this year. The company has worked with the oil and gas community in Scotland for over 15 years, and is now using the experience we’ve gained to support them as they move into emerging markets.
“To have achieved such steady and continued growth is testament to the quality and diversity of the projects that we have delivered. Our international aspirations are based on a combination of client led opportunities and our own ambitions to expand the business overseas.”
Most recently, the firm has handed over the new European headquarters for international IT giants, Wipro, in Paris, and has been commissioned to a project in Kurdistan for Abu Dhabi national energy company, TAQA Atrush B.V, as well as a design project in Oman.
Space Solutions will be exhibiting for the first time at OTC next month with the support of Scottish Development International (SDI). The company has benefited from a focused period of investment, which has included the acquisition of businesses to operate from London and Muscat, Oman to support its ambitious international aspirations.
