EnerQuip unveils new base in Houston

Bosses at EnerQuip hailed a major step forward for the fledgling oil service firm yesterday with the unveiling of a new £800,000 facility in Houston.

The Aberdeen-headquartered company, which was launched in June 2015, said the new base would improve its supply and servicing of “torque machines” in the US and Canada.

EnerQuip plans to at least double its Houston-headcount over the next six months, with jobs being created for service technicians and business development roles.

The company currently employs three people at the Texan facility.

It has 27 staff members across its Scottish bases in the Granite City and Lybster, Caithness.

EnerQuip director Andrew Robins, who is in charge of the new facility, said: “Houston is a key strategic market for us, whilst we have entered into it earlier than planned, this was driven by the successes we have had in the area. Our investment in Houston marks a firm commitment to the region and positive start to 2017.”

“We are continually looking to expand further in this region and will actively be employing staff locally to meet the demand in this area.”

EnerQuip has managed to achieve rapid growth, despite the tough economic conditions in the north-east.

In May 2016, the company said it had trebled in size in its first year of trading and attracted scores of clients.

Chairman Andrew Polson said: “I am delighted with the results we have achieved in such a short period, especially at a tough time for the industry.

“Following our success over the last year, we are delighted to be able to enhance our global footprint as we go from strength to strength in delivering a 24/7 service to our customers internationally.”
