Enelift sets course for growth in the offshore lifting market with seven-figure investment
Enelift, formerly Global Offshore, recently announced ambitious global growth plans for its lifting solutions in the oil & gas and renewables industry. The company will invest a seven-figure sum into its operations and establish new support hubs in Houston, Dubai, Singapore, Perth and the Caspian over the next six months.
Operating from its bases in Aberdeen, UK and Esbjerg, Denmark, Enelift was founded by 35-year industry veteran and Managing Director Paul Brebner ten years ago to offer the offshore energy industries safe, reliable and efficient storage and transportation of equipment. The company’s flagship Hinge Lok technology provides superior aluminium, non-welded light weight transportation cradle for casing and tubing. Enelift now plans to enhance its offering further by augmenting its existing solutions with robotics and remote operational and training technology.
The expansion plans are bolstered by the appointment of Jim Clark, owner of Craigendarroch Group to Chairman, a highly experienced Non-Executive Director and Chairman with proficiency on both SME and PLC Boards, and Adam Maitland to Non-Executive Director. Maitland is the Managing Director of Hutcheon Mearns IF, and brings his wealth of expertise in the field of corporate finance. Mr Brebner says, “Enelift may be a new name in the market, but the experience that we bring is industry renowned. Our solutions are underpinned by safety that enables inefficiencies and their associated costs to be eradicated – meaning operational personnel can focus doing what they do best, safely. We remain committed to providing the safest storage and transportation solutions for equipment in the sector as we grow our global operations.” Mr Clark adds, “The market is changing and our solutions fully support customers’ economic and safety aspirations. We are very well placed to take full advantage of increasing opportunities in the Middle East, Africa, Far East and Americas. Safety is our absolute commitment to our customers and our support hubs will facilitate this. Aligning our identity to our entire offering ensures that we will drive our expansion through new products and global support sites across the rest of this year.”
