Offshore, Onshore and Overseas

The energy industry presents many interesting challenges and our approach is to provide a tailored service for each project, taking time to understand our clients expectations.

Building on the reputation of our parent company, we are able to cater for inspection, maintenance and construction projects in the most unlikely of locations.

Our experience within the offshore drilling industry spans more than twenty years, going back to our first annual surveys for Exxon Mobil in 1986, then named Mobil North Sea Ltd, (still an ongoing contract).

Recent years have seen Axiom branch out into all sectors of the oil and gas industry and we are also well placed to cater for the expanding renewable energy sector.

In addition to our other accreditations, we are members of the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) and the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). Find out more about these organisations.
