ABERDEEN oilfield equipment firm, Enerquip, has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The Altens-based business, which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, was given the accolade for outstanding achievement in the field of International Trade.
It recognises the organisation’s success in overseas markets, which accounted for about 95% of Enerquip’s £12+ million turnover in 2019.
The company specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of torque machines and associated products, including bucking units and fully rotational makeup and breakout torque machines.
International hubs in Houston and Abu Dhabi work in parallel with the company’s Aberdeen base and additional premises in Caithness to deliver products and services to a growing client base in the likes of Africa, North and South America, Canada, Europe, Far East, Australia, Middle East and Russia, as well as the UK.
Andrew Robins, director, said: “This prestigious award gives important recognition for all that we have achieved in just five years, and we are honoured to be acknowledged with an award which is held in such high esteem.
“Whilst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the shape of our business landscape, Enerquip was established during a downturn and we are confident that those early experiences will stand us in good stead as we face the vagaries of the weeks and months ahead.”
