Company Profile

At Oceaneering, we solve the unsolvable. We are a global engineering company that has its roots in deep sea operations for oil & gas industries. Today we operate a diverse portfolio of business units and associated activities. Not only do we operate fleets of ROVs for deep sea operations. We run the NASA neutral buoyancy laboratory and we develop the next generation of spacesuits. We design some of the most popular entertainment rides for the likes of Universal and Disney. And here at Oceaneering Mobile Robotics (OMR), we specialize in creating cutting-edge, autonomous mobile robot (AMR) technology-based, turnkey logistic solutions. Our AMRs are employed in the production facilities of premium manufacturers and hospitals. With a focus on safety, reliability, and performance, OMR continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with robotics.
