Motive Offshore Restructures to Expand Global Reach, Create Jobs

North-east marine equipment specialist Motive Offshore, headquartered in Boyndie in Aberdeenshire, is restructuring to become Motive Offshore Group, with expectations to create more jobs for the local area.

Motive Offshore Group, which is comprised of two key operating companies – Motive Engineering and Motive Rentals – is in its fifth year of business and has experienced considerable growth since inception. The number of employees has doubled to more than 100 and the company has launched a new office in Aberdeen and opened international facilities in Norway, expanding its global reach.

As part of the restructuring, Motive Offshore Group not only plans on strengthening its offerings to clients in the UK and internationally, but the firm has expectations for ambitious growth in 2015 including job creation.

While the exact number of jobs to be created is unknown, the company has plans to continue growth domestically and internationally, a company spokesperson said in an email to Rigzone.

“The restructure will allow the firm to focus on each division, and in turn, there will be a requirement for more staff as the business continues to grow,” the spokesperson stated. “Over the last year, the firm has been focused on strengthening its middle management team making several key appointments, including HR, finance, sales and HSEQ managers to strengthen its overall services.”

Additionally, Motive Offshore Group recently launched its yearly apprentice intake with availability for six craft apprenticeships as part of a four-year program, which combines practical paid work and college training.

“The company restructure marks a pivotal time for the business as it continues to expand with an increasing portfolio of clients and workforce. The market is currently facing some challenges, but we are continuing to strengthen our position in the industry, continually reinvesting profit in our equipment and people to drive the business forward and offer our clients innovative products and an unrivaled service,” Motive Offshore Group CEO James Gregg said in a written statement. “It is great to be heading into year five with ambitious targets for 2015 as we focus on worldwide growth and further employment, which is vital for the local economy and the skills shortage in the industry.”
