Over the last eleven years the business has grown rapidly and now provides a vast range of specialist services and personnel across the Oil & Gas, Offshore Wind and Utilities sectors.
In June 2017 the company reached a significant milestone and now contracts over one hundred people. The strong and stable growth of the company is testament to SMC’s relentless commitment to high standards throughout.

Managing Director, Captain Ian Coates said “The business started eleven years ago with one person and has now grown in scale to employ over one hundred members of staff. This is a tribute to the hard work, professionalism, high standards and a dominant safety culture that SMC has built its foundations on since day one. Thank you to all personnel past and present, who have, and continue to work to the highest safety standards. We must also thank our large client base for their continued support and up take of SMC’s specialist services”.
