Kentech Launches Joint Venture Partnership with 3T Energy Group

Kentech is delighted to announce that it has entered into a new joint venture partnership with a leading training and technology organisation, 3T Energy Group, to launch a complete mobile training solution for the African energy sector.  3-TECH will offer ‘on-location’ workforce development solutions offering an agile and sustainable way of training workers in remote or challenging environments. Together, 3T and Kentech will unveil mobile, modular training centres, designed to help African countries train local people quickly in industrial skills such as construction, working at height, rigging and more, the centres come fully-fitted with internal training spaces tailored to the needs of local employers. As well as instructor-led training programmes, the centres will offer technology-driven training via simulators, virtual reality and e-learning in internationally accredited standards. The modular construction means each centre can be scaled up or down as required and there are a wide range of optional hubs available to add onto the core offer including dedicated skills centres, accommodation pods and extra classrooms. 3-TECH will also have access to 3T Energy Group’s cutting-edge, connected software solutions which manage workforce development and monitor and report on areas such as safety, compliance, competence and ‘on the job’ performance in real-time on a global scale. The new joint venture will be headed up by newly appointed Vice President, Colin Crowley, who is well known in the global energy sector having worked for the past 25 years in senior executive roles in the oil, gas, construction and mining industries across Africa and the Middle East. Colin Crowley, Vice President of 3-TECH, said: “Africa’s energy sector offers huge potential employment opportunities within local communities but new projects are often in challenging and remote geographic areas making skills development difficult. “3-TECH has been set up to provide agile, supportive, high-quality, safe learning environments which can be quickly and easily dropped into geographical areas where it would be impossible to build traditional training facilities. Within our mobile centres local people will be able to gain invaluable, tailored skills for industry and employers will be able to source the skilled and competent workers they need. “A complete mobile training solution can be designed and delivered quickly on site. This will help African people, regardless of how remote their location, develop vital skills now and in the future, at the same time as enabling companies to access skilled labour locally rather than looking further afield. We are hoping our new complete training solution will have far-reaching social and economic consequences for good and help to boost African growth.” For more information, please visit 3-TECH's website at www.3-tech.com

Kentech Appoints New Global Service Line Director for TMM

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Phil Johnson as Global Service Line Director for Turnaround, Maintenance & Modifications (TMM).  Phil and the TMM global team have worked tirelessly to complete Kentech’s TMM Value Proposition and are now excited to bring a better, digital approach to asset performance management, something we believe delivers an offering like no others in the marketplace. With a background in electrical engineering and a long career history, the last 7 years of which have involved heading up Kentech’s operations in Asia Pacific, Phil is excited to take on the challenge in this next step of his successful career.  He commented “Kentech is a company made up of long serving employees who genuinely believe in the ability of our core values to generate value for all our stakeholders, with our clients sitting front and centre. The TMM team is extremely strong, and growing every day.  With a highly skilled, digitally enabled workforce, a network of industry experts and an extensive body of knowledge, we can confidently say that we can achieve more for our clients at a lower cost”. Commenting on the developments within the TMM service line, John Gilley, Kentech COO, said “When the TMM Global Director position became available, we ran a process to find a replacement but there was always going to be only one winner.  Having worked with Phil for over 7 years and witnessed the effects he has on projects and regions under his charge, I had little doubt that he would inject the same energy into a Global Service Line.  Phil brings with him a hard but fair attitude and instils a culture of empowerment and respect in every team he has nurtured”. We would like to wish Phil and his team every success for the future in Kentech.

Kentech jumps ahead of the curve with ISO 45001 accreditation

We are delighted to announce, we have made the positive move to migrate to the new ISO 45001 for OHS Standard, being one of the first in our industry to achieve the full suite of ISO standards in Quality, OHS and Environment. In a firm demonstration of our commitment to safe, healthy and sustainable project execution, the move to ISO 45001 increases our organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention.  Although Kentech have always operated an Integrated Management System (IMS), this brings the three standards under one global system, strengthening our legal and regulatory compliance. Although launched in 2018, this standard will not become mandatory until 2021.  We recognised early that by migrating to this new standard, it allows us to align and integrate the ISO standards into a holistic management system which is world class.  This system will help us to deliver our ZeroIn promises and is a great demonstration of our K2 mind set of leading not following.

2018 Financial Results Give Second Successive Year of Record Profitability

It is now almost a year since we launched our Engine for Growth (EfG) programme, the delivery mechanism to grow to a $500m business by 2021 and set us on a trajectory to achieve $1b by 2025. Since the announcement of our EfG, we have evolved the business into three best in class services of specialist projects, commissioning and maintenance services to the energy industry. We pride ourselves on our trusted relationships, excellence in delivery and global agility, all delivered through the power of our exceptional people and personal touch. We are now delighted to announce that our year end results for 2018 have given us a second successive year of record profitability. Reported revenue for the year ended 31 December 2018 is $212 million (2017: $234 million). The Group recorded a net profit of $9.3 million (2017: $3.9 million) and adjusted EBITDA, a key metric for the performance of the business, of $17.8 million (2017: $17.6 million). With our strong balance sheet, no net debt and a record pipeline of opportunities, we are beginning to see the results of our strategic intent through the delivery of our EfG. With the proven operational capability and strength in safety performance that we have built through our people and systems, our focus has taken a fundamental shift to be much more externally focused and aligned with our clients, who come to Kentech for the quality of service we provide.
