OEM WINS SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEDO ENTREPRENEURIAL AWARDS
Oil and gas and marine services company, OEM Group, is celebrating after winning a second accolade two years in a row at the prestigious WeDo Scotland Entrepreneur Awards held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Edinburgh.
The company picked up the High Growth Award for showcasing growth across the business covering increased revenue, profit, staffing levels and geographical locations.
Last year, Managing Director Barry Park won the WeDo Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This followed on from picking up Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year at the Elevator Awards a few months prior.
The WeDo Scotland Entrepreneur Awards is an annual celebration of outstanding enterprising success recognising the vision, ability and contribution of the country’s business men and women.
Park established the oil and gas and marine services firm in 2012 after spotting a gap in the market for diesel engine services, spare part procurement and fuel conditioning for the oil & gas, marine and energy sectors. The company now has 30 employees based in offices in the UK, Australia and United Arab Emirates.
On winning the award, Park said: “To be recognised by the judges at the WeDo Awards for a second year running is incredible and we’re very humbled by the experience especially as the standard of the competition in the High Growth category was extremely high.
It’s been a fantastic but sometimes challenging journey for OEM Group since we started out just five years ago. The downturn in the Industry added more challenges than you first anticipated when starting a new business.
Through strategic planning and targeting key customers and new territories along with adding in new product lines, we have grown from strength to strength.
The team within OEM is the key to its success to date, without the right people it would have been difficult to achieve what we have to date.
The OEM team works very hard and deserve the acknowledgement for remaining loyal to the business and our clients in this difficult global climate.”
