Denholm Oilfield Services announces key acquisition

Denholm Oilfield Services has announced the acquisition of Smart Screening Technology – Non Destructive Testing (SST-NDT), a specialist inspection service provider in Bahrain.  The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, is a natural bolt on for group company Relay Engineering Limited which provides mechanical and electrical engineering solutions to the marine and oil and gas sectors in the UK, Bahrain and Kazakhstan.
Michael Beveridge, CEO of Denholm Oilfield Services, commented “The acquisition of SST-NDT is in line with our strategy of broadening our service offering in existing geographies and gives us the ability to cross sell our existing services into a new customer base. Bahrain has several large expansion projects already approved in the oil and gas and industrial sectors and this acquisition should enable us to grow our market share in Bahrain”.
Paul Fisher, Managing Director of Relay Engineering Limited, commented: “The acquisition of SST allows us to offer inspection and heat treatment services to the  marine, oil and gas and industrial sectors in the Middle East alongside our existing services.”    
SST – NDT will continue to operate autonomously providing professional inspection services including Radiography, Ultra Sonic, Magnetic and Penetrant testing alongside the extensive heat treatment services offered.
