Global Energy Group has continued its diversification strategy with the acquisition of a metals specialist in the nuclear industry. The Inverness and Aberdeen-based energy service firm snapped up Langfields, a nickel alloy and titanium fabrication business that also serves the pharmaceutical, chemical, offshore, marine and defence industries.

This is why both of our last two acquisitions have been non oil and gas.”
