Oil and gas firms join forces
Two of the biggest names in inspection services for the oil and gas industry are to join forces following the acquisition of MB Inspection by Dutch-based inspection firm RTD, part of the Spanish multi-national Applus+.
A market leader in inspection and testing services for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, MB Inspection turns over around £30m a year and has offices in Gt Yarmouth; the company employs over 350 staff.

Frank Ross of MB Inspection said: “We are currently tendering for over £60 million in new business and believe the combined capabilities of our two companies greatly enhance our offering.”
