OEM Diesel Products, which recently relocated its headquarters from Dyce to Altens to accommodate the continued growth of the business, has opened a new office in St George’s Terrace in Perth, Australia.

The move places the firm, which was established in 2012 to provide a single point of contact for companies sourcing engine services or spare parts in the oil and gas, marine services and energy sector, in the heart of the oil and gas district, close to major names in the industry.

In Aberdeen, the company recently moved to its new base at the Commerce Centre at Souterhead Road, Altens. The building, which spans more than 6000 sq ft includes a sizeable workshop, reception area, additional offices and boardroom. OEM’s Dyce building in the KirkhillIndustrial estate is now being used to provide additional storage facilities for its clients.

The specialist company recently signed a co-working agreement with the IPU Group to combine OEM’s expertise in the servicing of generator sets with IPU’s specialised knowledge of non-electric engine starting, long-term maintenance of stored fuel and extending the life of engine oil and hydraulic fluids.

The partnership has allowed OEM to launch a pioneering fuel cleaning system which is designed to prevent contaminated fuel causing major down stream problems of power failures on oil and gas platforms.

Managing director, Barry Park, said: “OEM continued to experience growth throughout 2014, and market demand for our new fuel conditioning systems made our decision to open the base in Australia relatively easy.

“Our new Aberdeen headquarters will also allow us to meet the modern demand from our clients which centresaround quality aligned to cost. As the company continues to grow, so too does our search for additions to our quality workforce. We plan to secure the services of a further six new members of staff in the very near future.

“Our long term plan is to build the business across Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney, and the Middle East. 2015 is definitely set to continue to be an exciting year for the company.”
