Wellpro Group, a recently launched intervention start-up, expects to create seven new jobs within its first year of trading after announcing its move to new premises in Aberdeen.

The business, which is primarily focused on well intervention and thru tubing tools, has been established to meet the demand for innovative solutions within the well intervention market in the UK and European markets as well as other major operating locations globally.

Chief executive Jim Thomson and technical director Scott Fraser were formerly managing director and UK manager respectively at Wellvention Ltd. prior to its sale to ALS. Operations director Grant Forsyth was most recently regional manager at Hunting Energy.

Wellpro Group is based at 5,750 sq. ft office and workshop space on Auchmill Road, Aberdeen which provides a platform to expand the business and the existing team – with the firm actively recruiting for several key positions.

Within its first weeks of trading, the company has held positive discussions with operators and service companies while it is also currently in the process of a significant investment in new equipment.

Jim Thomson commented: “As a start-up company, we are entering the market at an exciting time as the demand for innovation continues to grow.

“Wellpro Group is not limited to the UK and we aim to expand the business globally. Going forward, we will be hiring best in class personnel and working towards ISO and FPAL standards and accreditations to serve our clients.”
