Harry Gandhi - Unique GroupFounder of Unique Group, Harry Gandhi, says his company is preparing for projected upturns in the industry. (Image source: Unique Group)Unique Group, formerly known as Unique Maritime Group, is set to double its global subsea and offshore business through expansion into new markets and acquisitions

The integrated subsea and offshore solution provider has a turnover of more than US$100mn at present and is taking steps to double its size and global infrastructure by 2019. The company has restructured its worldwide organisation into five new business units to capitalise on its current and future market sectors.

The first expansion into new sectors is the launch of Unique Group’s range of technically advanced products for dive support vessels (DSVs) after three years of research and development. As offshore operations move increasingly into deeper and more challenging environments, the DSV market will become significant in the company’s growth.

Harry Gandhi, CEO of Unique Group, said, “We have over 200 engineering specialists across six global regions and a streamlined, multi-disciplinary offering. We work with the best vendors and offer our customers in the offshore and subsea sectors the most cost-effective solutions for their businesses. We are excited to be entering this latest chapter in our history and I am more than confident that we will reach our 2019 growth target.”

Three senior appointments have also been made to oversee the expansion plans in key growth areas. Mike Jessop has been promoted to global head of diving. Andy Doggett, former manager of Teledyne CDL, has been brought in to head the new survey equipment division, and Steve McMillan, former head of diving at McDermott, has been appointed as global HSE & projects director.

Unique Group will announce a further series of senior global appointments in the coming weeks and the acquisitions will be made public once complete.
