The company will cap a £400,000 investment in its north-east operations by unveiling new premises at Wellheads Industrial Estate, Dyce at noon on Tuesday, April 25.
The site includes 6,000 square feet of modern office space, a new laboratory and radiographic exposure bays for specialist non-destructive testing.
Offshore Contractors Association chief executive Bill Murray will open the offices.
Staff from MB Inspection’s Hi-Rope division will demonstrate their abseiling skills for up to 100 invited guests at the premises on Wellheads Way as part of the official opening.
MB Inspection announced in February that it is to create a further 50 jobs in the UK following its investment in Aberdeen, where it has an existing 150 staff based on and offshore.
It aims to fill those posts through a recruitment drive to appoint corrosion engineers, inspection engineers, radiographers and hydro-testing technicians throughout the UK - primarily at its Aberdeen and Falkirk sites.
With nearly 20-years’ dedicated inspection experience, MB Inspection has gained a reputation for expertise, quality and safety. The majority of the inspections it carries out are in the form of long-term inspection contracts with several major international companies in the refining, chemical and power industries.
The specialist knowledge and techniques employed by the company, combined with its high safety and quality standards make it one of the UK’s leading inspection companies.
Managing director of MB Inspection, Frank Ross, said:
“I am absolutely delighted to be welcoming Bill Murray to open our new facility in Aberdeen, where he will see some of our expert staff demonstrate the skills needed to provide the range of inspection services we do in both on and offshore environments.”
