STATS Group has won a prestigious industry award which marks its success in global markets.

The pipeline technology specialist won the Global Exports category of the Subsea Expo Awards, the second success in four years in the same classification.

Organised by the Global Underwater Hub, Subsea Expo is Europe’s largest subsea-focused exhibition and conference and celebrates companies leading the way in the UK’s £8 billion underwater industry.

STATS Group’s Sales Director, Ron James, accepted the award on behalf of the Aberdeenshire-based company at a ceremony at P&J Live in Aberdeen attended by more than 400 people.

Neil Gordon, chief executive of the Global Underwater Hub, said: "The calibre of the finalists and winners for this year’s awards was testimony to the outstanding innovation, technology, talent and leadership which continued across the industry despite the challenges created by the pandemic over the past two years.

“It was fantastic to be able to celebrate those achievements and successes in person at what is one of the first major events to take place since restrictions eased.

“What was clear too, was the growing emphasis on cross-sector collaboration which highlighted the opportunities that have arisen, and are being grasped, in alternative markets and sectors.

“This appetite for diversification and the ingenuity which has grown with it, is evident right across the underwater industry. There’s a renewed sense of optimism and an excitement about what lies ahead with an unprecedented scale of global opportunities in both energy transition and the wider blue economy.”

STATS Group has a long track-record of success in the international oil and gas sector and according to its latest accounts more than 88% of its £42.5 million revenue was generated outwith its home UK market.

Based in Kintore, near Aberdeen, STATS principal activity is the provision of pressurised pipeline isolation, hot tapping and plugging services to the global energy industry.

Leigh Howarth, STATS Group’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “This award recognises the importance of our internationalisation strategy and in the continuous investment we have made, in both facilities and in recruiting the right people, to establish a robust in-country infrastructure and to be accessible to our client base in key territories.

“I am delighted this vision and the hard work put in by colleagues across the group, in what has been challenging circumstances, has been recognised and it underlines the importance of investing back into the countries and communities in which we do business.”

STATS Group has also shortlisted in the Going Global category of Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce’s Northern Star Business Awards which takes place on 22 April in Aberdeen.
