T.O.S. and Sheffield join forces in new provider of construction crew for Offshore and Oil & Gas industry.

In July 2011 T.O.S. (Transport & Offshore Services) and Sheffield Offshore Services have joined forces to broaden their range of high quality personnel services. The new venture is called ‘TOS Sheffield Pte. Ltd.’

By joining forces, they will be able to supply a full range of crew, consisting of both maritime and construction crew, with TOS Sheffield supplying the construction crew. This will be particularly interesting for customers in the Offshore and Oil & Gas industry. Mr. Kees Wagenaar (Managing Director T.O.S.): ‘Our customer will have the benefit of dealing with one single party, thus being provided with a full range of crew at a fair price. By establishing our joint venture in Singapore, we can keep the operational costs low and still provide high quality services.’

Covering nearly every time zone
TOS Sheffield will be able to benefit from an extended network of local branch offices as maintained by its founding fathers. Offices are located around Europe (The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Ukraine), South America (Brazil), the Middle East (Dubai and Saudi Arabia) and Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia). ‘One of our goals for the near future is to cover every time zone. And we are well on our way! We are convinced this will be very convenient for our customers who are based worldwide too.’ According to Mr. Bryan Kee, Chief Executive Officer, Sheffield Offshore Services.

The company has seen continuous growth -reaching a turnover of 20 Million Euro in 2010- and several international branch offices have been established.
