Torque machine specialist EnerQuip has reported a strong start to 2022, securing more than $5 million in contracts around the globe.

The first quarter has seen the Aberdeen-headquartered firm expand its global footprint with an array of new wins, including its first direct sale to Guyana.

In addition, it secured the first two of a three-machine project for a client in Abu Dhabi, where demand continues to climb, prompting plans to create a new sales and service centre there later this year.

The centre will join international hubs in Houston and Abu Dhabi as well as the company’s global headquarters in Aberdeen and premises in Caithness.

Recent success has seen its client grow to include firms in Africa, North and South America, Canada, Europe, Far East, Australia, and the Middle East, as well as the UK.

In addition to new kit, the new awards include some $1m of after-sales support, which is also viewed as an integral part of the business.

The company’s staff base also continues to grow to meet demand, and EnerQuip expects to take on eight new staff in the UK and overseas this year, with engineering roles set to be its top priority.

Global sales and business development manager Darren Bragg noted the group’s investment in “fostering strong client relationships” as it looks to growing the business.

“Each time we work with existing clients in new locations, we are able to take the network we have established in Scotland to a greater worldwide audience and this is crucial to realising our long-term growth ambitions,” he said.

Director Andrew Robins added: “These recent contract awards are important steps towards a return to pre-pandemic levels and we are on track to achieve that by the end of the year.

“In spite of ongoing operating challenges, we are now able to look forward with optimism and forge ahead with our plans to open a centre in Abu Dhabi which we hope will further consolidate our presence in the important Middle East market.”
