PD&MS Group

The company

Founded in 2002 by its current management team, PD&MS Group is a fast-growing, specialist provider of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services for the global oil and gas industry, serving drilling, production and marine sectors. Operating in a growing, niche market, its core capability is ‘brownfield’ design engineering services, utilising sophisticated project planning and design software tools to service drilling and production operators throughout the oil and gas market. With established operations in the North Sea and more recently Azerbaijan, PD&MS Energy has embedded customer relationships with major blue chip operators such as BP and CNR.

Growth Strategy

PD&MS sought an investment partner who could help grow market share through international expansion, support complimentary acquisitions and introduce skilled individuals to their team to strengthen operations.

The Inflexion difference

Inflexion is working alongside PD&MS’s management team to continue building an international company of scale. Our investment will support the company in launching new services and in deepening existing customer relationships. As part of the buyout we appointed Alan Proctor as Senior Non-Executive Director and further investment will be made to build PD&MS’s sales and marketing divisions.
