Texo Group is bidding to become a leading inspection, engineering and technology integrated services specialist with a new industry group.
A new engineering and technology group, which is yet to be named, is set to create up to 1,000 new jobs across multiple UK based locations and generate annual revenues in excess of £100m.
It is being launched to meet the demand for integrated engineering services within critical infrastructure.
Representing an unprecedented offering in turnkey services to both UK and global markets, encompassing initial design, through to lifecycle management of critical assets.
The business will be headquartered in its purpose-built facility in Westhill, Aberdeen, alongside strategically placed fabrication facilities at the Port of Dundee, Hebburn and a new, bespoke fabrication facility located at the Port of Blyth, alongside overseas Drone operating bases in Nigeria, Malaysia and Brazil.
Providing integrated asset services, Texo Group is looking to become a leading inspection, engineering, procurement and construction (iEPC) specialist for multiple sectors, including oil and gas, clean energy and renewables, marine, nuclear, telecommunications, utilities and critical civil/infrastructure.
The Texo Group is currently undergoing an expansion plan to ensure commitment to its integrated iEPC ethos.
The business will offer clients an integrated asset services solution through a variety of group divisions, including Texo Drone, which supplies UAV survey and inspection solutions, operating from multiple global locations including Brazil, Nigeria and Malaysia with dedicated R&D facilities located at Herriot Watt University.
John Wood, chief operations officer, Texo Group said: “Challenging the status-quo and looking at new processes and technologies to help clients operate, manage and extend the safe working life of their assets is something that is in our DNA.
“We are not looking to be a me-too organisation. As a group we have looked at the architecture of traditional EPC companies, with fragmented supply chains and have redesigned the model to become a unique client-centric organisation which will help them work smarter, safer and more efficiently.”
Texo Drone, a division of the Texo Group, is the owner and operator of one of the world’s most advanced fleets of unmanned aerial vehicles for industrial survey and inspection.
The company provides an integrated aerial survey and inspection service, delivered by multiple remote pilot aircraft system (RPAS) and associated payloads.
