imgp8757(3)Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services, Inc Announces Relocation

Corporate Offices and Fabrication Facilities to be moved to Pensacola, Florida

Mobile, Alabama – November 20, 2014 – Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services, Inc (OIMO) is excited to announce a permanent relocation from Mobile, Alabama to Pensacola, Florida. This strategic relocation will facilitate significantly increased manufacturing capabilities and efficiencies in the broad range of services OIMO provides to subsea, marine, and oilfield related businesses. Corporate personnel and operational employees will be relocated to a waterfront office space at Palafox Pier while fabrication and related support facilities and personnel will be located in the Port of Pensacola. OIMO’s existing engineering team will remain in Mobile.

“There are two main drivers for this decision, which we made after thorough analysis of various options for the location of our headquarters,” said Robin Roberts, President and CEO. “First, we have out-grown our 5-acre facility in Mobile and the fabrication shop is inadequate for our current book of business. Second, moving our headquarters to Pensacola will give us access to a significant talent pool to meet future recruiting needs. We are appreciative to the Mayor of Pensacola and Pensacola City Council, as well as the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce and University of West Florida Economic Development Office for their unparalleled support for the move.”

Upon completion of the relocation, OIMO expects to add at least 35 administrative positions and up to 80 fabrication positions averaging $80,000 in annual compensation. OIMO will also create numerous ancillary jobs in the support and supply sector. This noteworthy relocation will also increase overall economic activity in downtown Pensacola and build a base upon which strong economic growth can continue to occur. OIMO recognizes the Port of Pensacola as a key asset with unrealized potential deriving from direct deepwater access to the Subsea and Marine service companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

Expanded Manufacturing Facilities Planned at Port Facility

 

Pensacola, Florida – July 10, 2014 – Offshore Inland Marine & Oilfield Services Inc (OIMO), a leader in Topside and Riding Crew repair services, is pleased to announce the expansion of facilities and services at the Port of Pensacola.  This phase of planned expansions will include a lease of 40,000 square foot manufacturing space to support subsea & marine related businesses.  This expansion is in sync with the Pensacola Port Advisory Committees’ recommendation to the Mayor that offshore/subsea business development be the focus of Port asset usage.  This approach provides a catalyst for increased economic growth in downtown Pensacola.  Through this public/private development project enhanced capabilities are added thereby increasing Port attractiveness to offshore service companies.  “As OIMO continues to build reputation in dockside service offering, it is important to continue to meet increased expectations for one-stop service delivery,” stated Robin Roberts, OIMO’s Founder and President.  “This expansion is a major step in accomplishing the goal of building the Port of Pensacola into a major Gulf of Mexico Offshore & Subsea Support Services Center.”

 

Once complete, this expansion will provide at least 100 new manufacturing jobs averaging roughly $60,000 in annual compensation and numerous ancillary jobs in the support and supply sector.  In addition, the manufacturing process will require numerous marine vessel load outs, mobilizations & demobilizations significantly increasing ship traffic to the Port and bring significant international exposure to the Pensacola area.  This increase in activity enhances the overall economic development of downtown Pensacola.  This project represents the best possible use of the Port of Pensacola assets and will lead Subsea Service companies to recognize this prime Gulf of Mexico location as ideal for necessary port services.

 

We recognize the assistance provided by the Greater Pensacola Chamber, who actively guided the project through the competitive site-selection process and helped our company navigate both the local, regional and state incentive approval process. Other local, regional and state partners instrumental in facilitating our project included Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida Department of Transportation, Escambia County and the City of Pensacola.

 

The project was also supported by two special regional initiatives – Gulf Power Company’s Job Creation Rate Incentive, which offers discounts to new and existing customers who add jobs, capital investments and new electrical loads to the region – as well as the Industry Recruitment, Retention and Expansion Fund, a regional economic development initiative administered by the University of West Florida and appropriated by the state legislature.
