Our History

Denholm Oilfield Services can trace its roots back to 1866 when the J. & J. Denholm was founded as ships agents on the Clyde in Scotland.

Over the next century and a half, Denholm expanded into ship owning, ship management, logistics, industrial services, seafoods and oilfield services.

Denholm companies have been operating in the oil and gas market since 1974 and have been serving the North Sea since the beginning.

Over time the oilfield services business has grown internationally and in 2015 our success led to the decision to demerge from the Denholm Group and operate as an independent Group dedicated to serving the international oil and gas market.

Today we employ over 4,000 people in seven countries on four continents and turnover in excess of £170m.

We continue to grow as a business both through acquisition and organically and have a strong track record in acquiring value added services that compliment our existing services to meet our customers' requirements.

Today Denholm Oilfield Services has never been better placed to meet our customers' requirements both at home and internationally.

We are very proud of our heritage and the solid platform that 150 years of ethical trading has afforded us.
