OSSO, formerly Centrifuges Un-limited, the specialist fluid temperature control and separation solutions provider, has appointed James Scullion as CEO to spearhead the company’s international growth. The rebrand has taken place at an important juncture for the company as it aims to deliver an ambitious growth plan, expanding its oil and gas presence on-and-offshore, whilst also broadening into wider energy and industrial markets.

With a 20-year track record in the oil and gas space, OSSO offers operators specialist mechanical separation and heat transfer solutions to lower waste streams, enhance drilling efficiencies and reduce rig time to minimise environmental impact. OSSO will be led by new CEO James Scullion, who will oversee the delivery of an ambitious 5-year strategy that aims to aggressively triple turnover, as well as significantly investing in equipment globally across its operations. Scullion brings significant experience in international expansion from his time at Ferguson Group where he supported the development of the modular workspace and accommodation business.

Commenting on the future of the business, Scullion says, “We believe that OSSO offers best in class fluid management expertise – from our track record to our team. In this rapidly changing environment strong, consultative customer relationships are invaluable. Operators are facing complex challenges whether it be environmental or financial and we have the proactive solutions to support them. With our seasoned team of experts, the vision is to take our knowledge in separation and heat transfer to solve waste and safety challenges in the wider oil and gas, energy and industrial sectors including construction and utilities.”

John Dick, Business Development Director at OSSO adds, “Our vision is clear, and we have the team who will take us forward through 2021 and beyond. It’s not every day that you get both the resource and investment that we have to truly accelerate the growth of the business and its people.”

The announcement follows the acquisition of Centrifuges Un-limited by Linton Investments in late 2019. Headquartered in Aberdeen, UK, OSSO also has offices in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and has a rental fleet deployed operationally around the world.
