An Ellon-based engineering company has invested £2.3 million in new premises following the rapid growth of the business in under two years.

SengS Subsea Engineering Solutions Ltd, which was established by managing director Murray Kerr in July 2012, has just completed work on new manufacturing and test premises at the Balmacassie Commercial Park in Ellon, Aberdeenshire.

The specialist engineering firm, which offers engineering design and consultancy, test and assembly, and IRM project support, has completed over 150 projects since its establishment. The company currently has a workforce of 12, including an accounts manager, project engineers and CAD operators.

Murray Kerr, Managing Director, said: “Most of our work is consultancy but once we move into our new manufacturing and testing facility, we will become a service company providing repair, refurbishment, testing and flushing services for topside subsea applications.

“Looking ahead to 2015, the company aims to expand into tool rentals, manufacturing and cutting services to further increase its market share and the portfolio of services it can offer to its clients.”

SengS, which delivers turnkey packages to its clients, has gained recognition for its achievements in the finals of the Grampian Awards for Business Excellence 2014, in the Business Success Under Three Years category.  The final winners will be announced on 26 June.
