Scan Tech Signs Strategic Deal with Perry Slingsby Systems
Scan Tech UK, part of marine services provider, James Fisher & Sons plc, is to boost its provision of quality tools for remotely operated vehicles following the signing of a Strategic Agreement with Perry Slingsby Systems, a leading international provider of remote intervention technologies and equipment systems.
The agreement will see Aberdeen-based Scan Tech UK, which offers the largest selection of subsea rental tools in Europe, appointed as the exclusive rental supplier for Perry Slingsby Systems' extensive range of ROV tooling in the North Sea. The deal could lead to the creation of a number of jobs at Scan Tech UK in Aberdeen.
Scan Tech UK is a long-term provider of seabed excavation services and systems, offshore deck equipment, subsea tooling and umbilical spooling.
Perry Slingsby Systems is a leading international provider of remote intervention technologies and equipment systems with production facilities in Kirkbymoorisde, near York, UK and Jupiter, near Palm Beach, Florida, and sales offices in Houston and Aberdeen.
Said Scan Tech UK Managing Director, John Sands: "We look forward to working with Perry Slingsby Systems to meet the evolving and expanding market for ROV standard and bespoke tooling. The addition of these advanced ROV tools and technologies to our range is in direct response to demands from our clients for more sophisticated equipment for deep water projects. They complement our existing range of equipment perfectly and add another dimension to our product portfolio".
He added: "Scan Tech UK is already a market leader in its field. The agreement with Perry Slingsby Systems will help us further develop and grow our business. Scan Tech UK had a good year in 2004 and the expansion of our product line through the agreement with Perry Slingsby Systems will help us to continue that success throughout 2005."
Said Perry Slingsby Systems' Sales and Marketing Manager, Dave Gillies: "A growing number of customers require the facility to rent quality ROV tooling products. To meet this emerging need, our business model has been expanded beyond straight sales of ROV tooling systems and now includes a number of exclusive tooling rental outlets. Scan Tech UK's knowledge of equipment rental, reputation for service and support, coupled with Perry Slingsby Systems' extensive range of ROV deployed tools, is the solution the North Sea market has been needing."
