WSG announces CIS acquisition

06 April 2017

WSG UK Ltd, a well-established service provider within the worldwide oil and gas market, are delighted to announce that on the 6th March 2017 we acquired a majority share of CIS (Northern) Ltd, a market leader in the Industrial & Environmental Services sector.

Currently, WSG UK Ltd and Group companies offer an extensive range of services from their numerous worldwide sales and operation facilities. WSG’s service offering includes: Process & Pipeline Services; Joint Integrity & On-site Machining; Coiled Tubing; Slickline Services and Valve Repair & Refurbishment.

Gareth Turner, WSG’s UK Managing Director comments

Following on from our other recent acquisition, the addition of CIS (Northern) into the WSG group reinforces our commitment to the supply of integrated services, I truly believe that we add value to our customers with the addition of more specialised services in order to decrease the number of interfaces on site.

CIS (Northern) Ltd. will continue to trade as normal from the Teesside facility but will enjoy the additional benefits of merging with the WSG group and will now be able to offer the whole range of services to their existing client base. Going forward the business will be re-branded as WSG Industrial Services Ltd and benefit from investment in new equipment and additional service offerings.

Mike Lee, CIS’s Regional director comments

Having served the Teesside manufacturing base for over 24 years, we believe that by joining the WSG group we now have the platform to not only underpin our traditional core services but to add new service line that will complement them. Safe, efficient & cost effective services have always been our aim, a business ethic I know is shared by everybody involved in the WSG group, giving us all an excellent foundation from which to grow.
