In July 2011, T.O.S. (Transport & Offshore Services, The Netherlands) and Sheffield Offshore Services (Singapore) joined forces to broaden their range of high-quality personnel services, named ‘TOS Sheffield Pte. Ltd.' This combination will be able to supply a full range of crew, consisting of both maritime and construction crew, with TOS Sheffield supplying the construction crew.
This will be particularly interesting for customers in the Offshore and Oil & Gas industry. Mr. Kees Wagenaar (managing director T.O.S.): "Our customers will have the benefit of dealing with one single party, thus being provided with a full range of crew at a fair price. By establishing our joint venture in Singapore, we can keep the operational costs low and still provide high-quality services."
TOS Sheffield will be able to benefit from an extended network of local branch offices as maintained by its founding fathers. Offices are located around Europe (The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Ukraine), South America (Brazil), the Middle East (Dubai and Saudi Arabia) and Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia). "One of our goals for the near future is to cover every time zone. And we are well on our way! We are convinced this will be very convenient for our customers who are based worldwide too," says Mr. Bryan Kee, chief executive officer, Sheffield Offshore Services.
Sheffield Offshore Services was established in 1999 and has been headquartered in Singapore ever since. The company has seen continuous growth, reaching a turnover of EUR20 million in 2010, and several international branch offices have been established. Sheffield is specialised in providing construction crew, drilling crew and project management teams.
