When it comes to talk about torque, market-leader EnerQuip offers the last word in global excellence, striving for connection integrity at every turn.
Launched in Aberdeen in June 2015, EnerQuip is a leading specialist in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of market leading torque machines and associated products, including bucking units and fully rotational makeup and breakout torque machines which can be adapted to suit any application.
These flexible solutions delivered by the best in the business are light on their feet when it comes to giving customers what they want, where and when they want it – and demand is increasing in all four corners of the globe. The company’s highly skilled team delivers 24/7, 365 support and works with a growing client base in an increasing list of locations that includes Africa, North and South America, Canada, Europe, the Far East, Australia and the Middle East.
With strategically placed service centres across the globe to capitalise on UK export opportunities, EnerQuip consistently exceeds the expectations of the evolving demands of the energy industry in mature and developing markets. This is thanks to a winning blend of support for existing fleets of equipment through service activity, and the design and manufacture of cutting edge, innovative equipment which seamlessly solves customer challenges whilst complying with all the latest industry regulations and operational demands.
A Queens Award for Enterprise (2020) winner, Made in Scotland winner (2021) and finalist (2022), Northern Star Business Award finalist (2022) and Elevator Award finalist (2022), EnerQuip has achieved phenomenal success in just seven packed years. Far from resting on their laurels, however, its energetic team is already gearing up for the next phase of the growth journey by shifting EnerQuip’s entire global headquarters from Altens, Aberdeen to Findon on the outskirts of the city.
North east-based operations are now in a single, spacious location, within easy reach of vital transport infrastructure and benefit from significantly expanded accommodation which includes 4,500 square metres of workshop, 15,000 sq. metres of yard and 1,200 sq. m of office space. Activities are further supported by a busy manufacturing team at Lybster in Caithness, which employs a team of ten.
News of the HQ relocation comes hot on the heels of a challenging 2021 which ended positively on a high note with news that EnerQuip had secured $2 million of deals, further strengthening its export credentials. The work included an initial $1m contract to supply EnerQuip’s offline make-up and breakout unit to Kazakhstan in a long-term deal which will see the company deliver multiple systems over the next three years.
And in a faster than anticipated return to pre-pandemic activity, the company is already ahead of expectations for 2022, thanks in no small part to a successful geographic diversification strategy which has already yielded a further $5 million dollars of work in Q1 alone.
To date, this has seen EnerQuip land its first direct sale of equipment to Guyana in a contract award of almost $1m and a $500,000 scope of work to supply an existing customer with a containerised make-up and breakout unit in Uganda.
Additionally, two torque machines are set to travel to Abu Dhabi, with a third to follow later in the year, in a contract worth in excess of $1.2m with both projects fulfilling the team’s desire to work with existing customers in new territories, whilst exploring new avenues and opportunities to expand the client base.
This strategy of partnering for growth is not only crucial in fostering client relationships in a mutually beneficial way, but also enables EnerQuip to support clients on their own growth trajectory whilst exploring new possibilities and consolidating plans to open a sales and service centre in Abu Dhabi during the first half of this year.
In response to the recent contract awards, EnerQuip has just appointed two new members of staff in Houston and ten in the UK, setting the pace – and the narrative – for further expansion in 2022 and beyond.
