Scopus to push for international growth after £13m cash injection
Specialist survey firm signs deal with Growth Capital Partners
Scopus, an electronic survey provider to the oil and gas sector, has secured £13m in an investment deal with Growth Capital Partners (GCP).
Operating a network of 180 staff, Scopus provides precision laser surveys for customers including international oil companies and major contractors.
With offices in Abu Dhabi and Thailand set to open this year, Scopus is hoping that the cash injection will support the Aberdeen-based firm as it grows both nationally and internationally.
The investment follows the appointment of former UK head of oil and gas firm Talisman John Forrest as chairman and sees GCP take a minority stake in the business and a seat on its board.
Andy Inglis, founder director of Scopus commented on the deal, which marks GCP’s fourth in nine months: “GCP will provide the new investment to fuel the ambitious plans we have to expand the business and to build on our leading market position.”
