Energy services group ICR Integrity has celebrated the official opening of its new headquarters in Aberdeen.
Chief executive Bill Bayliss hosted the event for about 200 staff, clients, suppliers and key industry players.
The new HQ consolidates nine offices and warehouses around the north-east, while the opening also marked the integration of various subsidiaries under one brand.
ICR, which specialises in maintenance and integrity services, said the move had already led to a transformation in business operations and showed a “real commitment” to the local oil and gas supply chain.
Mr Bayliss added: “This is a very exciting time for ICR and I was delighted so many of our staff, clients and key contacts took the time to celebrate with us. Simply, we want to use our new home base to export our services as we continue to strengthen our global position”.
Ellis Watson, executive chairman of media group DC Thomson, officially opened the new facility, saying ICR was “fantastically positioned” to make the most of opportunities ahead.
ICR has operational bases in the UK, Norway, the United Arab Emirates and Australia, with plans to open new facilities in Houston this year.
Former subsidiaries Walker Technical Resources, North East Corrosion Engineers, Chemical Injection Utilities, Quickflange UK and Mechanical Onsite Services have been merged into a single legal entity.
The new HQ in Aberdeen Energy Park 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 in 2014.
