Cosalt Offshore, a provider of lifting, tooling and maritime services to the oil and gas industry, has transformed its Aberdeen-based premises to help increase manufacturing capacity.
The company worked with the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service, part of Scottish Enterprise, to analyse resource allocation and identify bottlenecks.
As a result, Cosalt Offshore has completely redesigned its mechanical workshop, introducing an automated conveyer and monorail system, allowing for the significant reduction of manual handling and increased productivity.
The firm has also increased staff numbers by 20 in the past six months, taking its numbers to 245 in Aberdeen.
Rod Buchan, chief executive of Cosalt Offshore, said, “The return on investment in the workshop, along with the other new facilities that have recently been introduced, will be significant. We now have the necessary capacity to fully service the increased levels of activity expected in the North Sea throughout 2012.”
The company has also invested in a new onsite training center comprising of two classrooms and a large workshop allowing for practical demonstrations, the testing of lifting associated techniques, mechanical training in lifting equipment, wire rope finishing techniques and equipment maintenance and refurbishment.
