MacLean International Fit 4 Offshore Renewables
A year-long intensive programme has reaped dividends for MacLean International Group Limited as it joins a select group of companies reaching Granted status on the Ore Catapult Fit 4 Offshore Renewables (F40R) Programme. The industry led, fully funded unique service, supported by One North East (ONE) and Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP), was set up to help UK companies prepare to bid for work in the offshore renewable energy sector.
With an impressive track record in Oil and Gas over the last 45 years, supporting clients globally with hazardous area electrical, MRO, tooling, valve, PPE and safety solutions, MacLean International, part of the DNOW Group, operating in 180+ locations, was shortlisted from over 80 applications, based on its robust systems and the drive and commitment from Senior Management.
MacLean International fully immersed itself in the 2 parts to the dynamic initiative: a Business Excellence programme and detailed Sector Awareness training, implementing an array of business enhancements. Granted status now confirms that Ore Catapult is fully satisfied that MacLean International Group possess the knowledge, capability and competence to meet the required standard to do business in the sector and have the systems, processes, and knowledge deeply embedded within the organisation to succeed well into the future.
Mark Bruce – DNOW Vice President International Operations shares this conviction “The F4OR programme has been a catalyst to the company’s strategy for continued growth in the renewables sector. We are now in a much stronger position to access new opportunities to engage with major industry stakeholders and potential future customers and are fully committed to further invest in people, products and systems to enhance our offerings both domestically and internationally in this sector”.
