Titan Torque and Tools Services, an Aberdeen firm providing specialist support to the offshore drilling sector, plans to take on new workers after moving to a site 66% larger than its old premises.
It has switched from the city’s East Tullos Industrial Estate to a modern 25,000 square-foot office and workshop at Queens Links near the beach. Its previous base was 15,000sqft.
Titan, which employs 19 people and plans to add a further four by the start of next year, said it had spent over £150,000 on its new premises and the installation of cranes and specialist tools and equipment.
Managing director Keith Gaskin said: “We’ve invested in the business with a view to increasing our capability, capacity and delivery of services.”
Business-development director Bruce Jepp said: “Our expertise for specific projects has led to additional contracts with clients. We, therefore, required a base that could grow with us.”
Titan supplies drilling-support and torque services, bottom-hole assembly equipment and rental tools for clients in the North Sea and internationally. The company – among the winners at last year’s Northern Star Business Awards – has worked on projects in the UK, Africa, Middle East, Far East and South America.
