A NORTH-east subsea company is looking forward to international expansion – despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Legasea, based in Echt, is also hoping to create 10 new job next year.
The company said it comes following on from “the successful delivery of a variety of projects for exploration and production operators and oil and gas service companies”, which were successfully completed prior to the pandemic.
Business Gateway has provided advice to the Legasea team throughout its first year and with this it has received several grants from Aberdeenshire Council, which enabled the growth of the firm’s team, the development of a marketing strategy and the receipt of crucial ISO certifications.
Ray Milne, Legasea operations director, said: “The ongoing support from the Business Gateway team has been excellent.
“Throughout the lockdown, we have been working hard to put things in place so that we can continue to support our clients and deliver projects when we are back on site.
“There has been a sustained level of commercial interest from companies who want to work with us when COVID-19 passes and this makes us confident that – despite the challenging situation, Legasea is still on a growth trajectory.”
John MacGillivray, Business Gate Aberdeen City & Shire, business adviser, said: “It is excellent to see how Legasea has grown from strength to strength over the course of the last year and developed a strong track record for successfully delivering complex projects for clients.
“This has ensured the company is in a strong position for growth, despite the current challenges posed by COVID-19.”
