It operates from 60 strategically placed locations in nine countries across six continents serving offshore energy operators, developers and major service companies in the renewables, new energy, oil & gas, and decommissioning markets.
Endless will continue to support the current management team, including the planned transition of a new CEO as Mike Pettigrew assumes the role from Peter France on 2 October.
