Posted: October 7, 2019
Leading controls technology company Proserv celebrated victory at a prominent trade association awards ceremony held on October 3rd.
The Aberdeen headquartered firm picked up the Export category award at the Energy Industries Council (EIC) National Awards Dinner 2019 held at 8 Northumberland Avenue, in London.
The EIC provides dedicated services to help members understand, identify and pursue business opportunities globally. Established in 1943, the EIC is a not-for-profit organisation with a membership of over 650 UK-registered companies who deliver goods and services to the energy industries worldwide.
The award categories are based on the eight growth strategies explored in the EIC’s annual ‘Survive & Thrive’ report, which is now into its third year.
The award-winning companies demonstrated how they have successfully adapted and implemented one or more of these strategies to remain competitive and grow in the current challenging economic climate.
The judging panel selected Proserv for the Export category award due to its “successful strategy of boosting growth through service localisation in the Middle East”.
The firm’s Programme Director Andy Anderson received the prize from UK TV personality and comedian Dara Ó Briain, while Proserv’s Group CEO David Currie and ADNOC Operations Director John Bright were also in attendance.
Speaking after the awards dinner, David Currie remarked:
“October has already represented a hugely positive month for Proserv. We have seen the official unveiling of our corporate restructure into two technology driven divisions, Proserv Controls and Gilmore, a Proserv Company, while receiving this award from such a globally recognised body as the EIC, for our business model in the Middle East, is testament to the great work our various teams are doing in different parts of the world.”
Proserv has a notable footprint in the Arabian Peninsula, including facilities in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the UAE and Dammam in Saudi Arabia. It works closely with the region’s leading national oil companies.
Stuart Broadley, the EIC’s CEO, said of the recent awards ceremony, “Our members are without a doubt some of the hardest working and most dedicated people in the energy industry anywhere in the world. These awards are highly sought after as they truly reward those UK businesses of all sizes and sectors with the most exciting growth strategies.”
