SPIROTECH Aberdeen, a bulk handling, fabrication and blast containment specialist for the oil and gas sector, has been acquired by a team of industry experts and renamed Spiral Services.

CEO and investor Neil Thomson led the acquisition which will see the company continue to operate in Dyce, Aberdeen under the new name of Spiral Services with the existing team including Kris Hunter as General Manager.  Currently, the team includes 8 staff with plans to expand to 16 during 2020.

Alongside Mr Thomson, the acquisition is the first co-investment by Garrick Group, a team of specialists supporting growing businesses in the energy sector.  Founded by Ronnie Garrick, Douglas Garrick and Davie Garrick, the team will provide non-executive support and reinforce the existing industry track record driving the new business.

Mr Thomson said: “I am delighted to have finalised the acquisition of Spirotech Aberdeen and look forward to the growth ahead for the new business Spiral Services.  For the Garrick Group and I, it is a fantastic opportunity to work together again and utilise the expertise and industry knowledge we have gained over the past 28 years.”

Douglas Garrick, who co-founded TWMA will sit on the Board of the new business , added: “With Neil driving this exciting opportunity, we are delighted to provide support to a business that has a solid track record while also supporting growth with new product lines focused on equipment and engineering solutions.  With Neil as CEO, the company is already introducing new service lines including the recent Blast Control european agency agreement with plans to develop further services as Spiral Services moves forward.

“Neil has many years’ experience in areas of the R&D, fabrication, engineering and managing teams globally in the oil and gas sector.  Along with the existing team in the Aberdeen premises we are looking forward to supporting him and the staff during this exciting period of growth.”

Spiral Services, formerly Spirotech Aberdeen, was launched in Aberdeen in 2017 as part of parent company Spirotech-SRD.  The firm has built a reputation for excellence in design, manufacture and testing of screw conveyors, pressure vessels, blast curtains and chemical holding tanks.

Garrick Group is focused on supporting growing businesses in the offshore and onshore sector at board level, specifically those with export strategies and plans for growth.
