Witt O'Brien's has announced that it is closing its Derby, UK facility. This team joined Witt O'Brien's via the acquisition of LINK Associates International, a specialist in specific areas of training and competence assessment, primarily for the oil and gas industries. Fundamental changes in this sub-market's dynamics have led the company to designate this unit as non-core to the company's growth plans.We thank all of our UK team for their dedication and professionalism, and thank our UK customers for the trust they have placed in us over the years.
Witt O'Brien's remains committed to the global energy industry, which is one of the firm's strongest market segments. We will continue to serve this and other sectors through our US operations; our Brazilian joint venture Witt O'Brien's Brasil; and our global network of vetted associates and partners.
