Dron & Dickson secures international top 10 position

Hazardous area electrical specialist, Dron & Dickson once again features in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table in acknowledgement of its global growth and international sales.

Dron & Dickson has leapt an impressive 53 places to an overall ranking of 10th position. The company’s considerable growth and success in the international arena can in part be attributed to its continued expansion into emerging global markets, including the Middle East and Brazil.

Now in its fifth year, The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 publishes an annual league table ranking Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing international sales compounded over a two-year period.

d&dColin Maver, Group Director of Dron & Dickson, said:

“We are extremely proud, not only of our inclusion in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, but by our swift rise to a top 10 position. Our international expansion is something we take seriously, and our league table ranking is testament to our significant growth during the past 12 months.”

Maver added:

“Our continued expansion in the Middle East attests to this, with investment in new offices and warehousing to service our clients in Abu Dhabi and the surrounding region. Alongside this investment, Dron & Dickson turnover has doubled in the last 12 months, allowing us to up-skill the local labour market, broadening our scope of service provision in the region.”

Dron & Dickson employs more than 300 people both off and onshore and has a network of bases in Aberdeen, Hull, Lowestoft, Stirling, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Brazil.

The company provides a wide range of services, which include the design, specification, supply, installation, testing, commissioning, maintenance and repair of electrical equipment in hazardous areas both on and offshore.

In addition to targeting growth in the oil and gas sector, Dron & Dickson operates in the renewables and decommissioning markets.

It also works in a variety of other sectors of industry ranging from pharmaceuticals to distilleries. The company offers a full range of life-cycle solutions and holds numerous supply agreements providing competitive contract prices, matched inventory, spend analysis, KPI reporting and technical support.
