The recent appointment of David Leith as Rentals Division Manager is indicative of the company's focus on the specialised rental of high capacity winches, umbilical deployment and subsea equipment.

Discussing 2020 results so far, David commented:

I am delighted that our Rentals division has made such a positive start to the year. Having been a part of the Motive journey for over eight years, I can confirm that our success so far is based not only on our extensive range of rental products - we offer Scotland’s largest fleet of Hydraulic Power Units (HPUs), including a range of ATEX units - but also our continued investment in both new and existing rental equipment.

We have been manufacturing the highest quality equipment since we began trading in 2010. Those proven, in-house engineering capabilities allow us to re-engineer our catalogue of products to suit specific requirements, working to the shortest of lead times and deploying from our locations across the globe.

- David Leith, Rentals Division Manager @ Motive Offshore Group

Whilst recent events have impacted across the entire offshore oil and gas supply chain, I am hugely encouraged by the excellent start to the year, made by David and Motive Rentals.

Our diverse range of rental products was created to suit global market requirements and includes high capacity winches, HPUs, marine cranes, subsea baskets and smaller tooling and test equipment. With market conditions at their most challenging for some time, I fully expect the industry to take further advantage of asset rental and believe our investment in this area remains key to our preferred supplier status. We certainly have plenty to celebrate in 2020, as Motive reaches its ten-year anniversary.
