LABTECH Services, a Specialist Services Group Company has announced that in response to the current market conditions in the oil and gas Industry and in line with recent process optimisation, the company has relocated its facilities in Aberdeen.

"This change marks another important milestone at Labtech and Specialist Services Group. The currently challenging time in the industry, especially in Northern Europe, is reflected in reduced demand for new builds on the one hand, while on the other we are witnessing an increased demand for modular building rentals as well as service, maintenance and refurbishment works. In response to that, Labtech is now focused mainly on providing modular hire units for rental and service works," said Ian Rogers, chief executive officer at Specialist Services Group.

The new facility is located in the Logman Center, Greenbank Crescent in East Tullos, and includes an office space for the Labtech team and a yard for our Modular Hire fleet storage, refurbishment, recertification and modification works.

"To support the increased demand we are experiencing for our Modular Hire units, we are expanding our fleet in Aberdeen. We already have the highest specification and newest Office Module fleet available anywhere in Europe. We will now expand our provision with the introduction of our fully ABS compliant FLEX 33 Accommodation Module. This launch along with our improved service capabilities covering HVAC, F-GAS, ATEX and IECEx recertification is an exciting next step in Labtech’s development. In addition, Labtech will continue to deliver new build solutions to our client base manufactured at their Group facility in Dubai, ensuring internationally compliant products at commercially competitive costs," said Chris Ridley, group sales and marketing director at Specialist Services Group.

The team restructure and facility relocation will bring significant benefits to Labtech and Specialist Services Group by providing sought after modular hire units at competitive rates for immediate delivery as well as responsive call out service and maintenance works.
