BPD Zenith Expands Business

BPD Zenith is expanding its business with the launch of new premises in Aberdeen.

The company specializes in the provision and support of IBM's Maximo Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software, which is used by many North Sea operators to manage their maintenance and engineering operations. The new office is at Original House on Craigshaw Road where seven new and existing staff will be based.

BPD Zenith is headquartered in Carlisle and has driven its Aberdeen expansion plans forward on the back of a successful financial year, which saw the firm record a turnover of £2.5million – almost 40% more than figures recorded for the previous year.

George Lightfoot, managing director of BPD Zenith, said, "We are delighted to expand our presence in Aberdeen. Over the past few years we have been developing and growing our client base in the North east and we felt the time was right to open an office.

"We recognize the significant opportunities that the Aberdeen oil and gas sector presents as more North Sea assets are acquired by lower cost operators, many of whom are already our clients. To date, we have provided Maximo software implementation and customization services to support 25 successful asset transitions in the North Sea.

"We pride ourselves on providing a high level of expertise in the maintenance sector, which has enabled us to develop software solutions that can be tailored to suit the needs of individual clients.

"We are particularly looking forward to working with companies operating in the energy sector and intend to use our unique positioning as a company that specializes in EAM with a presence in Aberdeen to offer clients on site, local expertise, training and support with their asset management systems."
