Global integrated offshore solutions provider, Unique Group, has completed the acquisition of the Aberdeen, UK-headquartered, load-testing equipment provider, Water Weights.

The newly acquired specialist will be an addition to Unique Group’s well-established Buoyancy & Ballast division, reinforcing its vision to deliver bespoke engineering solutions to customers worldwide.

Unique Group’s manufacturing and global supply chain capability, along with Water Weights’ distribution capabilities, will provide significant synergy potential to reach clients globally.

Both companies will share their extensive network of partnerships and distribution agreements at regional bases around the globe, complemented by integration with other Unique Group business units.

Graham Brading, Group Director - Buoyancy & Ballast at Unique Group, said: “We are excited to combine the expertise of Water Weights with our own. Through our existing buoyancy & ballast capability we specialise in the manufacture and distribution of air-filled buoyancy bags.  With the addition of the Water Weights business, we further strengthen our position in supply of equipment and services to the load-testing industry.

“Both companies have a long-standing track record in helping clients to achieve cost savings while enhancing safety. We will now be able to combine our expertise and service clients effectively from a wider range of locations.”
