The contract, for a land drilling company in Algeria, is to supply 65 land rigs with new and bespoke Rotary Table and Drill Floor Safety Mats. Work will start immediately and is expected to take about 10-12 weeks to complete.
Mark Watt, managing director of SafetyGrip Solutions said “This is the culmination of months of painstaking work and continual communications to have our products and designs approved by the drilling contractor. The process was made even more challenging with the inability to visit in person due to Covid restrictions and having to rely on our agent getting the correct people into video conference calls. The efforts have finally paid off and we look forward to working closely with the client on this and future projects”.
SafetyGrip Solutions Ltd have ambitious expansion plans which will now be brought forward to facilitate the fabrication of the safety mats required to complete this order. This will include the search for additional workshop / warehouse space and an increase in staffing levels. Mark also said “This order couldn’t have come at a better time for SafetyGrip Solutions. With the easing of Covid restrictions and a return to some form of normal working, we are now in a better and stronger position to drive the business forward and achieve the ambitious targets that I have set for the company. I didn’t expect to see any real developments until 2022 so am highly delighted with this contract award."
