The Ferguson Group, specialists in the rental of containers, accommodation modules and engineering modules to the offshore energy industry around the world, is expanding its international presence in response to customer demand for its products.
Over the coming months, the Ferguson Group’s teams in Norway and Australia will move into larger premises in Stavanger and Perth, respectively, while a new base will open in the Middle East.
The Ferguson Group announced the news today at Offshore Europe in Aberdeen, where it is exhibiting on stands 2E132 and X40. The Norwegian market is key for the Ferguson Group and it is also exhibiting later this year at Offshore Technology Days in Stavanger (October 19-20) on stand 2911 (Hall B).
Steven Ferguson, Managing Director of the Ferguson Group, said: “Offshore Europe offers an unrivalled opportunity to promote our business in the UK and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea, meet with existing clients and develop potential connections for future projects.
“We have had a successful year with international work accounting for 75% of our business and we aim to continue to expand upon that in the future, supported by a three-year, 670million NOK investment programme in the Ferguson Group companies.
“We have had excellent and consistent feedback from our existing customers in Norway that we provide high-quality equipment and services. We hope to build on that in the future as we expand the range of containers, accommodation and NORSOK-accredited workspace solutions we provide to the Norwegian sector, as well as the fleet of specialist refrigeration units through our new company IceBlue Refrigeration Offshore.
“At present, our asset rental fleet exceeds 14,000 units with a replacement value in excess of 1,340million NOK making us one of the biggest global suppliers and able to respond quickly to the demands of clients – wherever they might be located and however many units they need. We plan sustained investment to increase our fleet to ensure we continue to have the global infrastructure in place to support the worldwide operations of operators and major service companies.’’
