Marine equipment specialist Motive Offshore – which based in Boyndie, near Banff – has promoted Eddie Moore to head of sales at its Norway office, just over a year after launching in Scandinavia.

Operating as Motive Offshore Services AS in Norway, the international division has experienced strong growth, establishing a reputable name in the area and completing its first year of business with turnover of around £1 million.

The Aberdeenshire firm specialises in the manufacture and rental of high-capacity winches, umbilical deployment equipment and specialised subsea equipment. It has a fully operational base in Stavanger and invested more than £2m in its marine equipment in the last year.

Motive Offshore – set up in 2010 by James Gregg (chief executive), Dave Acton and Bob Smit, – now employs more than 100 people across its three bases in Boyndie, Aberdeen and Norway.

The firm has future plans to recruit additional staff and to further invest in rental equipment, which will be showcased next month.
