A new management team and a change of focus lie behind the re-launch as Blackhawk Offshore of an established UK-based services company.
Formerly Yardbury Kinetics, Blackhawk Offshore offers a broad spread of support to the oil, gas, and marine sectors focussing on hydraulic control systems and equipment for rigs, vessels, and production platforms.
The company is led by commercial director Craig Banks and business development director Andrew Mackay, who each bring with them more than 20 years' oil and gas experience.
Mr Mackay said: "Blackhawk Offshore builds on Yardbury Kinetics' long and successful record in hydraulics to offer a significantly wider and more flexible service to our clients and we have already been awarded work in the North Sea and further afield under the new branding."
Blackhawk Offshore has headquarters and full workshop facilities in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified and FPAL registered, an Oil & Gas UK member and IADC associate member, and works with all the UK’s major oil and gas drilling, service, and intermediary companies.
Mr Mackay and Mr Banks are both attending next week's Subsea Europe 2011 event in Paris where they will be joined by Alain Béroule, Blackhawk Offshore regional director for Western Europe, and Hédi Behassen regional director for Southern Europe and West Africa.
Mr Mackay added: "Our motto is 'clear vision, rapid response, singular results' and we are committed to becoming the oil and gas industry's first choice for specialist support by reducing our customers’ downtime and increasing their uptime."
