Today we announced to our employees that on January 1, 2022 we will align our two UK entities, Bilfinger UK and Bilfinger Salamis UK, in turn becoming one of the largest engineering and maintenance contractors in the UK.
The new Bilfinger UK will employ more than 4,500 people with 14 onshore locations across the UK’s key industrial hubs. Combining our onshore and offshore capabilities, we are ideally placed to deliver large renewable energy projects as the UK transitions to net-zero, whilst expanding the services and solutions we provide to customers in oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical, utilities and pharmaceutical markets.
“The sectors we operate in are changing rapidly as the UK accelerates its energy transition. Combining the strengths of both businesses will create a unified proposition to respond to the shifts in market demand.
“The merger will position the company as a contractor of choice to deliver major renewable energy projects, strengthen our existing presence in our traditional markets of oil and gas and utilities and target growth in power, food and beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical.”
“We’ve already been working together on projects for hydrogen plants, carbon capture facilities and onshore and offshore wind, and the move will enable us to face the market as one integrated engineering and maintenance, modifications and operations business.”
