Altrad Services becomes UK’s largest industrial services provider

Altrad brings together Cape PLC, NSG and Hertel to create UK’s largest industrial services provider to the petrochemical, energy and infrastructure industries

Altrad has announced its UK integration, following its recent acquisition of the industrial services specialist, Cape PLC. Cape will integrate its products and services offering with two other Altrad owned brands to form the new Altrad Services business.

The consolidation of Altrad businesses, which sees Cape combine with industry leaders NSG and Hertel, is designed to provide an efficient, streamlined offering to customers, and positions Altrad Services as the UK’s largest specialist industrial services provider to the oil and gas, energy and infrastructure industries.

Simon Hicks, Managing Director for Cape UK commented: “The bringing together of three of the UK’s most successful industrial, construction and maintenance businesses is an exciting time of change for the industry. The newly launched Altrad Services enables us to offer something truly unique to our customers - with our dedication to customer service and operational excellence continuing to drive our approach.”

“Due to the size of the new business, we’ll be able to offer unprecedented economies of scale, creating new opportunities for working in a more expansive, but still agile way. This ensures our solutions are always tailored to each customer’s individual needs, with an ongoing commitment to maintaining the most competitive prices.” Simon added.

The newly formed Altrad Services business vision is clear; to grow its business in the UK. To support this ambitious goal, Altrad Services has developed three distinct business lines, with each having its own separate strategy, aligned to its customers and markets. These include Maintenance, Modifications and Overhauls (MMOs), Projects and Nuclear. 

Simon continued “MMO is the traditional part of the business and will continue delivering industry-leading excellence developing deeper relationships with our customers. Projects will be made up of Altrad’s specialist services and offshore businesses - targeting growth through major projects. The Nuclear Stream brings together the excellence of Hertel and Cape, continuing their work with current customers in this area, while developing greater capabilities around nuclear decommissioning.”

“Our vision is clear and ambitious. By bringing together these three leading brands, we’re future-proofing our business and aligning our operations to the current market trends. Altrad’s new expanded offer delivers an enhanced, innovative service - catering for every business in the oil, gas and chemicals industries, no matter what the size or requirement.”

Future developments will see the new integration build on its years of experience in the oil and gas, energy and infrastructure industries, with a vision to become a sustainable business for the future. With a strong industrial services capability, married with unique R&D and service development, Altrad Services will provide an efficient and comprehensive range of services, streamlined for existing and prospective customers.
