Scantec reports strong overseas growth
RECRUITMENT agency, Scantec has reported strong growth in its international arm, which supplies staff to the oil and gas sector.
Turnover at the Birkenhead company’s overseas division has more than doubled year-on-year from £1.9m to £3.9m with demand being particularly strong among customers working in Norway’s offshore oil and gas sector.
Scantec. which also works in the nuclear, energy, transport and engineering sectors, said the growth had been achieved despite less than buoyant oil production levels in Norway.
Andrew Willmitt,manager of the overseas division at Scantec, said: “We are absolutely delighted with our phenomenal growth over the past 12 months. What is more, although the last year has been a challenging one for Norway in terms of oil and gas production, we believe a series of major oil and gas field discoveries in the Barents Sea could halt or even reverse this trend.
“We have a high degree of confidence that the stable economy of Norway, outside of the EU, and the extensive natural reserves of oil and gas, make Norway a solid business environment for many years to come.”
