Ashtead Expands in USA with Aqua-Tech Solutions Acquisition

Ashtead Technology has acquired Louisiana based subsea equipment rental and cutting services specialist, Aqua-Tech Solutions, as part of the company’s international growth plans in the USA.

The acquisition strengthens Ashtead Technology’s ROV and mechanical tooling offering, broadening its survey sensor rental fleet. It also sees the firm’s specialist subsea services capability extended with the introduction of subsea cutting equipment.

This latest transaction is the fourth deal completed by Ashtead Technology since the business was acquired by Buckthorn Partners and APICORP in April 2016.

Ashtead Technology chief executive, Allan Pirie said: “We are very pleased to welcome the Aqua-Tech Solutions team into the Ashtead Technology group and to expand our operations in Louisiana. This acquisition enables us to provide our full equipment and service capability right where our clients require it, at their project mobilisation locations at ports across the Gulf of Mexico coast.

“Aqua-Tech Solutions is a strong fit with our strategic goal to increase the group’s equipment and services to match customer demand. At the same time, it solidifies our established subsea solutions fleet in support of our clients’ long-term successes around the world.”

Aqua-Tech Solutions president, Jared Deculus said: “This is an exciting time for the business. The opportunities offered by becoming part of the Ashtead Technology group will enable us to deliver a broader range of equipment and project services to our clients. It also opens us up to wider international market prospects where clients are looking for the range of specialist cutting equipment and personnel we can provide.”
