Aberdeenshire based Plant Integrity Management Ltd (PIM) is set to increase the size of its workforce by 10% by the end of the first quarter of 2017.
The firm, which specialises in integrity management services, has created five new positions at its UK headquarters.
The new roles, which include two senior engineers, a corrosion consultant, a software developer and a technical assistant, will bring the company’s headcount to 57.
Steven Plant, managing director of PIM said, “PIM started life just over five years ago with four people. In the current climate, to be able to say that not only are we still in business but that we are growing and are in the fortunate position of being able to create five new roles is testament to the demand we are seeing for our services. Our clients understand that integrity management is not just about doing the bare minimum, rather they have recognised the need for change and have committed to improving their assets and making them sustainable for the long term.”
Steven added, “We are committed to being the best in the industry and to helping our clients to achieve best practice on their assets.”
This latest announcement follows a further period of substantial growth for PIM. In 2016 the company was awarded a five-year contract to provide inspection management services by Nexen, a wholly owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited.
“Our growth plans are not limited to the UK. We continue to explore the opportunities which exist to deliver integrity management services in the Middle East. We recently implemented a risk based inspection plan in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia at Ras Al-Khair for Ma’aden Phosphate Company.” Steven concluded, “We expect to be in a position to announce further plans regarding our overseas expansion later this year.”
