Engineering and design consultancy firm, ClerkMaxwell, has secured more than Â£5 billion worth of contracts in the last 4 months.
The Aberdeen-based company has only just celebrated its first birthday and is now looking to more than double its workforce in the next year. The firm have already increased their Aberdeen office space and now plans to recruit at least 60 more staff to work on projects in the North Sea and around the world. ClerkMaxwell currently employs 40 staff at the Salvesen Tower HQ with a wide range of technical and development skills, encompassing both topsides and subsea disciplines.
Despite the current economic climate, the firm have managed to secure major business contracts in the last 4 months. ClerkMaxwell have agreed engineering support contracts with major operators such as Chevron North SeaLimited, CNR International and Petro Canada UK Limited.
ClerkMaxwell Managing Director John Wilson, Subsea & Pipelines Director Guy Cook, Technical Director Satnam Shoker, Projects Director Sean Close and Executive Officer Alistair Dornan have been the driving force behind the company. They have over 100 year’s experience between them and they believe this has been the key to achieving success in the current economic downturn.
Managing Director John Wilson said; â€œWeâ€™ve achieved so much in our first year in what has been a testing time for the oil and gas sector. I believe this has been possible due to the experienced team which has been put together at ClerkMaxwell.”
