Bibby Offshore is on target to achieve a turnover of £220million by the end of 2013 and plans to increase this to £650million by 2017. In May this year Bibby Offshore relocated to a new, purpose built office facility at Prospect Park, Westhill, to provide the company with the additional capacity necessary to support its significant increase in staff numbers and services, as Bibby Offshore’s operations expand both in the UK and internationally.

BOL and BRIL, part of Bibby Offshore has grown from 10 employees in 2003 to now employing more than 1,300 people onshore and offshore worldwide, with offices in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Singapore and Trinidad.
