J+S celebrates strong year with global award

Subsea controls engineering specialists J+S Subsea have lifted the Operational Support Company of the Year title in the Corporate LiveWire Global Awards.

The Aberdeenshire-based business has taken the top spot in the awards, based on its quality of service, innovation and sustainability initiatives.

Managing director Phil Reid said: “We pride ourselves on understanding customer drivers and priorities so receiving this award is brilliant recognition for our efforts”

“We like to celebrate our success, but we don’t intend to rest on our laurels. An upturn in new work from emerging marketplaces has seen us deploy on decommissioning projects and inspection, repair and maintenance campaigns. We moved to new larger premises in Kintore two years ago, to acquire larger workshops and stores, as well as accommodate a growing team.”

“Our reputation within the industry for supplying quality and value is very important to us.”

Engineering solutions

The company was formed two years ago, following a management buy-out, to focus on delivering competitive and timely engineering solutions within the supply chain.

J+S Subsea spotted an opportunity to bring together an experienced team with the knowledge and expertise to push the net zero agenda in the North Sea oil & gas industry.

As well as offering design, maintenance and engineering solutions for subsea equipment, their Legacy Locker initiative introduces a circular economy into the industry by optimising the value of existing, unwanted capital equipment.

Industry recognition has come through a steady stream of awards success.

Their work on the Legacy Locker was shortlisted for the Excellence in Collaboration award at the Decom North Sea awards two years ago and they were a finalist in Best Small Company in the Subsea Expo awards earlier this year.

They were also finalists in the Manufacturing & Engineering Start-Up category of the national StartUp Awards, and recently business development engineer Tom Hutchison was announced as a Rising Star finalist in the Northern Star Business Awards 2023.

The Corporate LiveWire Global Awards have been running for the last decade and involve over 25,000 votes cast by voters from 32 countries.
