Energy is key growth factor for firm – boss
Design and engineering consultant W.S. Atkins said yesterday the oil and gas sector played a key role in its plans for future growth.
The firm, which employs around 1,200 people in its energy business, including 170 in Aberdeen, said a buoyant market in the UK and the export of its skills around the world meant oil and gas was an important part of its expansion. Martin Grant, managing director of energy at Atkins, said the division had enjoyed high demand in the past year and he expected that trend to continue.
He added: “Atkins is an international business but it is important to highlight that energy is a key growth sector for the firm, and oil and gas is a big part of that.”
