The First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond, officially opened Bibby Offshore’s purpose-built headquarters, Atmosphere One, on 28 May 2013.
The company recently relocated from Aberdeen Harbour to the new office facility at Prospect Park, Westhill, to provide it with the additional capacity necessary to support a significant increase in staff numbers and services, as Bibby Offshore’s operations expand both in the UK and internationally.
Bibby Offshore is on track to achieve a turnover of £220 million by the end of 2013 and plans to increase this to £650 million by 2017, creating more than 100 onshore jobs in the north east.
Bibby Offshore’s Chief Executive Howard Woodcock said: “Continued investment in the development of the energy industry is exceptionally important and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to welcome the First Minister to officially open our new premises.
“The move was essential due to the speed at which we are expanding, the impressive demand for the company’s expertise, and our growth strategy to triple the size of our business around the world in the next four years. We have a number of key initiatives in place to ensure we recruit and train the most talented people in order to ensure the business can continue to grow.”
