About Us

Our history



Steve Pryor and John Trewhella launched OPS Group in 1988 and is now a global, multi-site organisation that has grown to 30 staff and over 300 regular contractors.

The company first opened its doors in Aberdeen, the hub of Europe’s oil and gas market, with just three employees, and focused on serving North Sea operators. With the addition of partner Ray Johns in 1990 and continued success in sourcing qualified personnel, reputation grew in the industry. By the mid-1990s, the company was flourishing, with clients in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Due to the high demand in the Middle East, OPS Group opened its first overseas facility with a base in Dubai, UAE, in 2005. In 2009, with the encouraging developments in the Middle East, OPS Group launched in Perth, Western Australia, to provide a base for the Asia-Pacific region.

With considerable growth since its inception, the company is dedicated to ensuring that its strong local activation model and core values are continually championed.
