Network infrastructure specialist Xtreme Business Solutions has expanded its workforce with eight new recruits as a result of an upsurge in work from the energy sector at home and overseas.
The Westhill-based company’s headcount now stands at 48, after winning a clutch of new contracts for clients including Transocean, Genesis and Technip. Further major projects with a combined value of £1.2 million have been secured for 2013, including rig fleet refurbishment work on behalf of Diamond Drilling and Transocean.
Over the past two years Xtreme has invested heavily in specialist equipment and offshore survival training for its team of fibre and data engineers. This investment has allowed the company to offer its clients in the energy sector a full range of onshore and offshore communications solutions.
“It is very encouraging that oil and gas companies are making use of our capabilities to tackle rig cabling, maintenance and refurbishment projects offshore and overseas,” said Graeme Duncan, managing director, Xtreme. “As well as attracting new clients, we have been able to extend the range of services we offer our existing clients.
“Over the past few months, we have tackled a diverse range of jobs from the installation of complete network infrastructures in new office buildings to fibre work for CCTV systems on offshore rigs.”
