Five subsidiaries of Aberdeen-based ICR Integrity will soon be operating under one roof after a 15-year lease deal for offices in Bridge of Don.
Walker Technical Resources, North East Corrosion Engineers, Chemical Injection Utilities, Quickflange UK and Mechanical Onsite Services have also been merged into a single legal entity.
ICR specialises in maintenance and integrity services for the oil and gas, power, chemical, nuclear and defence industries.
Its headquarters have been based at The Hub, within the Aberdeen Energy Park, since 2013.
Over the next couple of months, it will relocate operations from six bases across the city and shire into a custom-designed facility, Unit H2, Claymore Avenue, at Aberdeen Energy Park.
The logistical challenge of having six different sites led the group, which employs about 200 people globally, deciding to consolidate operations onto one site.
Chief executive Bill Bayliss said about 20 potential properties were considered before bosses settled on H2.
He added: “The convenient location of the Energy Park, combined with the high-quality facilities and adjoining yard space attracted us to the new unit. The facility meets our business requirements in the Aberdeen area and will support us to fully integrate our service offering, leverage our market leading technical expertise as well as drive expansion.”
The new building has 11,000sq ft of warehouse space and 5,000sq ft of office accommodation. It is owned by Moorfield Real Estate Fund III, which acquired Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks on behalf of property investor Moorfield Group in 2014.
Mark Holmes, head of asset management, Moorfield Group, said: “This deal is great news for the park and for the Aberdeen economy in general.”
Knight Frank, Ryden and FG Burnett were all involved in the deal.
