A Scottish oil and gas engineering services contractor has announced plans to create 200 new jobs in Dundee and Aberdeen as part of a global growth plan.
Texo Group is aiming to generate an annual turnover of £100 million to recruit an additional 800 workers at its overseas depots.
The business will be headquartered in its purpose-built facility in Westhill, Aberdeen, alongside strategically placed fabrication facilities at the Port of Dundee, and a new, bespoke fabrication facility located at the Port of Blyth, alongside overseas drone operating bases in Nigeria, Malaysia and Brazil.
Texo Group is expected to announce several major new contracts this summer to support its global expansion.
John Wood, Chief Operations Officer, Texo Group explained: “Texo combines decades of experience and expertise in technology, engineering and industrial services, together with significant capital investment to bring to market a fully integrated asset services solution for the global energy sector and other critical infrastructure industries.
“Challenging the status-quo and looking at new processes and technologies to help clients operate, manage and extend the safe working life of their assets is something that is in our DNA.
“We are not looking to be a me-too organisation. As a group we have looked at the architecture of traditional engineering, procurement and contracting companies with fragmented supply chains – we have redesigned the model to become a client-centric organisation which will help them work smarter, safer and more efficiently.
“Providing integrated asset services, Texo Group aims to become a leading Inspection, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (iEPC) specialist for multiple sectors, including oil & gas, clean energy and renewables, marine, nuclear, telecommunications and utilities.”
Meanwhile, Texo has appointed Mark Kelly as director of its drone survey and inspection business.
