James Fisher Marine Services acquires leading hydrographic survey capability
JFMS has purchased the operations and assets of Insight Marine Projects, a leading hydrographic survey services company based in Cornwall.
James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) today announces the purchase of the operations and assets of Insight Marine Projects Ltd (Insight) - a specialist survey company headquartered in Cornwall.
Insight, which has a developed an excellent reputation within the surveying market for the supply of coastal, inshore and offshore services, further enhances JFMS’s extensive in-house capability. The purchase will see the addition of hydrographic/geophysical survey and construction support to JFMS’s existing offering to the renewables, oil and gas and civil engineering markets around the world.
The combination of assets and resource, alongside the recent purchase of the Cerys Line survey vessel, will doubly increase JMFS’s ability to support its customers with an enhanced, customer driven and truly integrated marine service offering.
Richard Argall, managing director of marine projects at JFMS said of the purchase:
“Our market leading marine service capabilities have been further strengthened through the purchase of Insight. Complementing our existing offering, we can now provide an even more comprehensive service to our customers globally. Insight is known for its first class subsea survey expertise and we are very happy they are joining the JFMS team.”
Alex Richards, managing director of Insight added:
“Being part of JFMS means that Insight is now able to undertake larger and more complex surveying projects for customers around the world. We are delighted to be joining the group and are looking forward to our future partnership.”
Insight Marine Projects will be rebranded during 2017 to form the subsea surveying division of marine projects at James Fisher Marine Services.
