Royal day for Flowline Specialists

Energy Voice

Flowline Specialists has been presented with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise at its headquarters in Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire.

The energy industry equipment manufacturer and service provider learned earlier this year it had been honoured in the category for international trade.

Its royal recognition came after it grew overseas sales by 2,600% to £3.4million during the six years to March 2015.

Turnover rocketed by 640% to £6.36million over the same period, with overseas sales representing 55% of the total, while staff numbers ballooned from eight to 55.

Established in 2001 and now employing 60 people, Flowline Specialists designs, engineers and manufactures equipment to handle flexible pipes, umbilicals and cables for global oil and gas, subsea and renewable-energy markets.

Alongside its Oldmeldrum headquarters and a manufacturing facility in Fyvie, the firm has bases in Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore and Dubai.

The operation in Dubai, which was set up just last year, is targeting the Middle East, India and Africa for new work.

Presenting the company with its Queen’s Award, Aberdeenshire Lord Lieutenant James Ingleby said: “The dedication, dynamic and innovative approach of the management and team have paid dividends for the company and this award is thoroughly deserved.”

Flowline Specialists chief executive Jim Smith said the award recognised “the hard work invested by our whole team in developing the business”.

Mr Smith added: “Their contributions have supported the evolution of Flowline Specialists from a UK-focused business into an international one with overseas bases.

“It has been a pleasure to welcome the Lord Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire to our premises and give him an insight into our business and operations.”
