Texo Pursues Offshore Wind with New Blyth Office

Texo Group has opened a new office in the Port of Blyth with the aim of supporting the needs of the offshore wind sector and focusing on back-of-deck and mechanical equipment projects.

Texo has also made three new appointments to its engineering leadership team to head up the new office in the North East of England and to help meet the company’s growth in project opportunities.

David Stark took the position of Construction Director, James Russell of Equipment Director and Andy Lovell of Sales Director, joining Managing Director Andy Kay, Engineering Director Garry Kennie and Operations Director James Allan.

Russell and Lovell will be based at the new Port of Blyth facility, where they will be responsible for the development of the company’s renewable energy and equipment supply strategy.

“We have a carefully assembled team of specialists with outstanding reputations within their respective sectors. Our engineering capability and expertise extends to upstream, downstream oil & gas through to clean energy, renewables, nuclear and critical infrastructure,” said Kay.

“Moreover, having an office in the North East of England now, helps us immensely in servicing the engineering needs of our clients in the region.”

Formed in July last year, Texo is said to have been founded in response to the market need for an experienced and highly skilled multidisciplinary engineering team, to deliver integrated technology-led asset services.

The company offers in-house fabrication, rope access, painting, inspection and NDT, along with mechanical equipment design and supply.

“The real differentiator for Texo is the ability to provide a truly holistic approach to each project. There are several single skill providers out there, but the market has been crying out for a multi-discipline specialist like Texo,” said Russell.

“This is an exciting time for the Group, especially with the growth in renewable energy projects. Andy and I are very much looking forward to playing our part in the future success of Texo.”
