Legasea Team
Case Studies

Legasea set to expand into international markets in 2020

A North East subsea specialist company, that provides electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic services, and promotes a circular economy, is preparing to expand its operations internationally over the next year.

About the business

Legasea provides an alternative route for recovered subsea production systems, taking ownership and liability for waste equipment that would typically be discarded. Component parts are then used to fulfil the urgent demand for spares in the subsea oil and gas sector, reflecting the Legasea ethos to promote and implement economic and environmental change across the energy industry.

The ongoing support from the Business Gateway team has been excellent, with recommendations gladly received on how to prepare the business for future growth, both locally and internationally.

How Business Gateway has helped

Business Gateway provided targeted advice to the Legasea team throughout its first year in business, helping the owners to develop a strategy and implement their business plan.

Following Business Gateway’s advice, Legasea also received several grants from Aberdeenshire Council, which enabled the growth of the firm’s team, the development of a marketing strategy and the receipt of crucial ISO certifications.

Ray Milne, Operations Director, Legasea, said: “The ongoing support from the Business Gateway team has been excellent, with recommendations gladly received on how to prepare the business for future growth, both locally and internationally. This has ensured our operational resilience, which has been particularly valuable in the current environment."

The team also accessed support from DigitalBoost, Scotland’s digital business skills programme delivered by Business Gateway, which improved its digital marketing methods and search engine optimisation. Business Gateway also facilitated an introduction to Zero Waste Scotland.
