ABERDEEN-based control technology provider Proserv Controls is driving forward with its expansion after opening new facilities in Cumbernauld and Abu Dhabi following a seven-figure sum investment.
Michael Purkiss, Proserv Services vice president, said the opening of both Service Centres of Excellence demonstrated the firm was “growing and moving forwards” despite the global pandemic.
The new site in Cumbernauld represents the firm’s Service Centre of Excellence for Measurement and replaces its location in Coatbridge.
The facility offers almost 800 square metres of space, including a testing laboratory, workshop and office provision. The base will serve as the team’s global headquarters (HQ) for its growing measurement and metering activities, with a capability to supply independent system design, build and installation.
The new base in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi is an upgrade on its previous base in the city, with a service workshop of more than 1,000 square metres, 400 square metres of office space and encompassing a total footprint of almost 3,000 square metres.
The site delivers a wide range of Proserv’s service and production capabilities including the build, repair and upgrade of all brands of hydraulic control systems, pressure testing facilities, as well as the provision of the firm’s bespoke AEGIS maintenance optimisation solution and remote asset monitoring.
Mr Purkiss said: “We made our commitment to these facilities before the pandemic arrived, and our team has skilfully harnessed their dynamic designs to make them safe and entirely fit for purpose within the current requirement for socially distanced work environments, with reduced physical contact.
“Once life returns to normal, these new sites will then transition very smoothly back to their original plans. But, moreover, they give us the necessary scale and size to ramp up our expanding activities and enhance our efficiencies even further.
“Our life-of-field service support business has gone from strength to strength and that has taken time and effort as we have built up relationships with some of the biggest players in the industry.
“These new facilities demonstrate that even during a global pandemic, we are growing and moving forwards. Strategically, there are strong synergies between these sites that will ultimately assist in expanding our footprint through enhanced capacity and scale.”
