KenzFigee, a well-established lifting, handling and service specialist of tailor-made equipment for the marine, offshore and wind energy industry, is delighted to announce the opening of the new UK office, workshop and storage facility at Brechin (Angus), 35 miles south of Aberdeen.
The new site at Brechin Business Park (Scotland) has been chosen to allow KenzFigee UK to accommodate the company’s rapidly expanding workforce and facilitate an increase in demand for its engineering expertise in the global offshore oil & gas, defence and renewables markets.
The new offices will house multiple project teams within the KenzFigee UK organisation including an innovative engineering department and versatile multi skilled service workforce. As part of this development, 4 new jobs will be created at KenzFigee UK with two new staff having already been hired.

The new space will create much needed additional capacity to support our expansion plans into renewables and deliver a project-centric working approach.
KenzFigee is a unique place to work and our team is an important part of our company’s culture. I am delighted we are able to expand our premises and settle in this outstanding setting, with a workshop of 650sqm (9m eaves height, 6.5m crane hook, 5te gantry crane) and 2000sqm yard space, we will also have support from the Hydrus Group where we will have access to an additional 2000sqm workshop space with 15te and 50te gantry cranes if required.
We are very proud to be making this crucial step in development and are confident that we have improved our position to serve key operators for service and engineering support, this move firmly sets the wheels in motion for KenzFigee to create a legacy as a globally recognised hub for engineering excellence”, concludes Barry.
