Energy service firm Apollo Offshore Engineering said yesterday it wanted to double its workforce to 60 in three years.
The Aberdeen-based business employs nearly 30 people but wants to recruit a further 12 in the next year alone to help it to meet turnover targets.
Apollo has annual turnover of £2million but has set its sights on £3million in its financial year starting in October.
Director Ryan Menzies said the company’s growth was helped by strong demand for engineering support services.
He added Apollo would ultimately target the Gulf of Mexico for new work plus Australia and Singapore.
Mr Menzies said: “A lot of our projects tend to be in the North Sea but we are also doing some work overseas. Every region has its technical challenges. Projects like deepwater developments or high-pressure, high-temperature fields throw up tricky engineering problems we are well-placed to help solve.”
In addition to its Aberdeen headquarters, Apollo also has a project office in the Granite City and an engineering site in Nottingham.
