Engineering company to expand and move


A NORTH Somerset-based offshore sub-sea engineering service company has announced plans to expand to new offices at Wick St Lawrence.

Agito-UK vice-president Gordon Haldane plans to recruit more staff over the next year as a response to an increased demand for the company’s services and signs of an economic upturn.

He said: “It is pleasing at a time when a lot of businesses are struggling or even going under, to be able to take these positive steps.

“Despite challenging business conditions, we are seeing more enquiries coming in and there is a clear demand for our services that was not there even a year ago.”

Agito-UK provides engineering services and specialist simulation software for the oil and gas industry.
