THE chief executive of offshore accommodation firm Ferguson Modular, part of the Inverurie-based Ferguson Group, is at OTC to promote the company’s growing international business.
Tim Sheehan joined the business last year, following a number of high-profile posts including heading up Acergy UK and Bibby Offshore, and vice-president at Technip, based in the US and developing business in the Gulf of Mexico and Americas.
He said: “My time spent in the US gave me a great understanding of the market there and OTC is always a tremendous way to promote your business and seek out scope to secure further projects. We have been and will continue to invest heavily in developing technical excellence, enhancing our products and expanding internationally. The global market is holding up well for us, with contract wins in the North Sea, Australia, the Far East, Caspian and west Africa, so it is a case of continuing to ensure we focus on the right opportunities for us in the right part of the world at the right time.”
Ferguson Group is just starting year two of a three-year, £60million investment programme.
