Neptune Marine Services (Neptune) has established an office in Houston, Texas as it is targets to expand its services within the Gulf of Mexico and the Americas.
Operating under the name Neptune Subsea, the company will be led by John Allen, a Houston-based strategic business development advisor, formerly of GE Oil and Gas. Allen is expected to drive the expansion and maximise Neptune’s opportunities in the region.
The expansion has been supported by Scottish Development International, the international arm of Scottish Enterprise. Funding was awarded to Neptune Subsea Engineering in Spring 2016 for Company Growth Business Support for expansion into the Gulf of Mexico.
Robin King, Neptune CEO, said: “Our expansion into the US was a strategic initiative planned to provide key clients in the US with the technical expertise they have grown to expect from Neptune. We are optimistic about the potential opportunities that our presence in the US will deliver and look forward to expanding our client relationships in the region.”
Kevin Stephen, Neptune’s operations and business development director for Europe, Mediterranean and Africa, added: “We are delighted that the office in Houston is now in place. I would like to thank Scottish Enterprise for their support and advice which was a key factor in enabling Neptune’s expansion to become a reality.”
