Tendeka Sets Up Shop at Aberdeenshire

Tendeka, the provider of completions and monitoring products and services to the upstream oil and gas industry, announced it is to enhance its North Sea and international growth plans with expansion into new headquarters in Aberdeenshire and the development of a high-tech research and development facility in Aberdeen.

The company is to move its headquarters to Abercrombie Court, Arnhall Business Park, Westhill. The new premises will house executive, sales, projects and support services.

Tendeka will retain its current premises in Peterseat Drive, Altens, Aberdeen, converting them into high-end research and development, testing and assembly facilities. In addition a fluids, chemical, rubber and sand laboratory for its extensive completions portfolio will be included, with further enhancements of its sub-surface engineering capabilities.

The Altens premises will also house a new compounding facility for Tendeka's leading range of swellable packers and a regional sales and technical center.

The company, which has offices in all the world's major oil and gas centers, has seen a significant increase in international business in the last 12 months, with multi-year awards for all products and service lines in its portfolio.

Alongside this significant investment in facilities, Tendeka continues to expand its service and product offering, and is actively recruiting in the UK, Europe and globally. Positions for regional managers, sales and technical staff, R&D support and designers are included within the company's recruitment drive.

Tendeka CEO Gary Smart said: "Tendeka has rapidly grown its geographical presence, product portfolio and market position and this investment is the logical next step in our growth plans.

"The UK North Sea still possesses significant opportunity and our international business is experiencing rapid growth. Such investment enables us to fully support our growing business.

"Tendeka's clients operate in some of the harshest and most technologically challenging environments and our expansion and commitment to the development of innovative technologies and the evolution of our existing offering ensures we are aligned with market needs."
