A LEADING ENERGY INDUSTRY SPECIALIST
A company with ambition.
In 2022 Motive secured a significant investment from H2 Equity Partners (H2) - an independent private equity firm with a strong performance record and currently managing a portfolio of 14 companies, with over £1.1 billion in sales.
H2 supports good businesses, helping them become the best in their sector.
Motive has a clear, focused expansion strategy, continuing to grow and strengthen our offering through successful acquisitions and collaborative business relationships. This has played a key part in the company's progression, and reputation for Motive is everything.
Launched with the aim of providing quality equipment and services from a positive place of work, Motive delivers a complete solution for the entire project lifecycle: from conception to completion, with our core values of people, planet, product at the heart of everything we do.
Our focus has always been on safe, reliable solutions to help keep clients’ projects moving, whilst offering maximum cost-efficiency.
As the world changes, so do we. We remain versatile and responsive, one of many reasons our clients keep coming back.
WE ARE MOTIVE
Our Team makes us what we are.
With a people-first ethos and an open culture that encourages communication and demands accountability in every action, our people truly care about what they do, and about the environment in which we work.
CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
We believe in a "values-based" approach.
Motive is committed to contributing back to the communities in which we live and work.
We are proactive in supporting local initiatives and regularly undertake fundraising and charitable work for good causes. Team Motive was formed by our employees as a way to come together to make a difference.
It’s important to Motive to support our local community and we’re very happy to be involved with Huntly ASDitude, a local, parent-led charity supporting children & families affected by Autism, AD(H)D, and related conditions.
Team Motive took on one of our toughest challenges to date - the Illuminator Night Trail Race. Described as Scotland’s toughest night half marathon, the team covered the challenging 15 mile route at Glen Tanar to raise funds for Braemar Mountain Rescue.
Macmillan Cancer Support
From the Great Motive Bake Off to the Ironman 70.3 Dubai challenge or the Edinburgh Marathon, Motive is always happy to get involved in raising funds for Macmillan.
We are proud supporters of RNLI and our local lifeboat station Macduff, with our Christmas ‘win a day off work’ raffle now a regular feature on the Motive calendar.
Cancer Research UK
Team Motive is tough enough! Motive’s dedicated mountain bikers completed the Strathpuffer, the ultimate 24-hour mountain bike challenge, raising funds for Cancer Research UK.
Whether it’s a Kilt Walk or a Fire Walk, if it means raising money for veterans’ charity Erskine, Motive is there!
We've done a lot in a short life
We are bold and ambitious.
Starting out servicing the oil and gas industry, we now work across multiple sectors, delivering end-to-end solutions on projects for leading operators worldwide.
