Bibby Offshore Opens Office in Singapore
08 January 2010
Bibby Offshore, the UK-based provider of subsea construction, IMRand offshore management services, has opened an office in Singapore.
This latest move further internationalises the business following the recent relocation of the company’s dive support vessel (DSV), the Bibby Aquamarine, to the Asia Pacific region.
The company has signed a three year lease for office space in Prudential Tower, in Singapore’s financial district, totaling 3,300 square foot. A small team will be established to work from the new premises, under the leadership of Alan Reid who has been appointed regional manager.
Mr Reid, who has 25 years experience in the subsea construction, has worked in Asia for the last four years. Reporting to chief executive, Howard Woodcock, he will be responsible for managing the company’s activities in the region, in support of its international growth strategy.
Mike Watson, who currently occupies the position of commercial
manager in Aberdeen, has been seconded to Singapore, to assist Alan in
the creation of a fully functioning business unit.
