EFC Group, a designer and manufacturer of instrumentation, monitoring, handling and control systems for the global oil and gas industry, announced the launch of a new manufacturing plant in Moray. 

 

The base in Enterprise Park, Forres marks the Group’s second phase of expansion in the area and a £100,000 investment. This follows the opening of a new satellite office in the same business park in September 2012. 

 

The new 4,000-square-foot plant has been opened six months ahead of schedule, demonstrating how EFC Group is driving forward its aggressive growth strategy. The company achieved turnover of £14 million last year and projects it will exceed £30million turnover by 2016.

 

The facility sees the number of EFC employees based in the region reach 18, eight more staff than originally anticipated. New personnel in the region includes project and software engineers to design and project manage EFC’s extensive range of Choke, BOP, Diverter and Managed Pressure Drilling Control Systems.

 

EFC Group CEO Bob Will said, “As part of our growth plans, we will also be increasing our number of offshore personnel to complete system warranty extension visits and electric and hydraulic gauge calibration services. Extending the range of services, whilst making use of competent and enthusiastic personnel in this region is crucial for providing the high level of client support that EFC Group is known for providing.  

 

EFC Group has options in place to move quickly into phase three expansion plans for manufacturing activity in Forres, which could be confirmed as early as summer 2013.

 

Following the opening of the new bases in Forres, EFC Group now employ s 127 members of staff across its offices in Aberdeen, Leeds, Houston, Singapore and Abu Dhabi. The Group also has international representation in Norway, Mexico, India and Brazil, making it well placed to serve its global client network.
