Subsea cable and connector specialist, Hydro Group plc, has welcomed delegates from across the globe for its third annual Business Partner Forum.

Held at the company’s Aberdeen headquarters, the 3-day event from 9th-11th October saw Hydro Group connect with 14 of its business partners from Asia, Europe and North America, improving their knowledge and understanding of the company’s products and services.

Delegates also shared updates on their regional market requirements, discussing current activities and opportunities for improving the delivery of products to each region. The event ended with Hydro Group sharing updates on new business developments, establishing future milestones for the Group to work towards.

Graham Wilkie, Head of Global Development at Hydro Group says, “Our business partners are instrumental to Hydro Group’s success; it is imperative that we work with them first-hand to ensure they have a full understanding of our company and, most importantly, we provide each with the opportunity to hear how we can improve our overall business delivery. Our subsidiaries – Hydro Group Asia and Hydro Group Systems – are key to business development moving forward. Following in-depth one-to-one meetings and training sessions, we are confident operations on both sides of the globe will flourish.”

“It’s been a fantastic three days; mixed in with our seminars and demonstrations our delegates had the chance to experience some true Scottish culture, with visits to Fyvie Castle and the Glen Garioch distillery. We look forward to welcoming our business partners again next year and strengthening the close working relationships we have forged,” Wilkie adds.

From its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Scotland, Hydro Group develops the complete subsea electrical and optical interconnect package, built to withstand the harshest environmental conditions.

Hydro Group employs more than 100 full time staff worldwide and operates on a global platform providing total solutions to a portfolio of prime contractors, major operators, OEMs, defence agencies, defence organisations and the UK MOD.
