Subserv Pro Ltd and ORCA Offshore Ltd join Atlas Professionals

Adding Scope to the ROV and Diving Industries

Through the collaboration of our subsidiaries, Atlas Professionals has been able to grow and strengthen its presence within the Energy and Marine industries. Now, one year on, Atlas Professionals completed the acquisition of a 100% interest in Subserv Pro Ltd (SSP) and ORCA Offshore Ltd (ORCA). This acquisition will add further scope and options for both Atlas’ clients and personnel.

Based in Banbury, the office will expand Atlas’ UK network, bringing together two of the strongest agencies in the niche markets of ROV, Diving, Inspection and Renewable Energy.

Sharing the Same Values

When Atlas began proceedings of the acquisition, both companies found that they shared the same core values; to invest and help their professionals grow within their careers. Marcus Chandler, Managing Director of SSP explains the importance of combining these companies, “When selecting the new custodians of Subserv Pro & ORCA the criterion was to find a partner with the same basic ethos, expertise, passion and resources to guide our business and people through the next stage of their development. Having worked closely with Atlas Professionals over the past year I am convinced that we have made the right choice.”

Management Change

As of the end of August, SSP’s and ORCA’s staff shall remain unchanged, with their teams operating in the same location. However, Marcus and Operations Director Celia Chandler will leave the company and hand over management to Andrew Blears, Director of Atlas, with daily operations managed by Rob Pattenden, Jason Timms and Will Taylor-Walsh.

Atlas’ UK Network

This office will be collaborating with Atlas’ Lowestoft branch, where all of Atlas’ ROV services have been transferred. “I am very enthusiastic about the transaction, it perfectly fits our strategy,” says Atlas Director Andrew Blears. “In an ever changing industry, where competency, reliability, compliance and quality assurance are vital elements in our business, the combination of these services shall ensure that we are able to excel and further improve the level of expertise available to all that rely on us. During difficult economic and market conditions, we see this as a big step forward in creating a sustainable and strong company that has the foundations to survive the test of time.”

As ever, Atlas shall remain committed to continuing business as before, offering quality and maintaining a personal approach in all that we do.
