Why choose us?
With 30 years' experience in the highly competitive oil and gas industry, Argosy Control Engineering has built an unparalleled reputation for providing high performance protective coatings which extend the life of the asset, while building trusted partnerships that give peace of mind to our customer.
We are specialists in the treatment and copper plating of exotic alloys. Our philosophy of “Protective Coatings, Right First Time” means we pride ourselves on providing high quality, first time, reducing the need for expensive reworks and operational downtime.
Our very strong relationship with Argosy started in the boom time of the early 1990s. We were a small independent company carving a reputation in the oil industry.
Like all small growing companies our development relied on growing strong partnerships with like-minded companies. We found a go-ahead company with the same growth and technical aspirations as us in Argosy.
Our growth was exceptional and with Argosy's help we expanded our revenue by 20% year on year for the first three years of our collaboration, with Argosy taking care of all of our coating needs and meeting the very stringent demands we placed on them.
Since those early days, we have developed a stronger relationship and we know that however difficult the situation, Argosy will be right behind us helping to meet our demands.
Who we are
Argosy is a family-run business based in Aberdeen. Established in 1992 by Peter H Watt at the peak of the city's oil and gas boom, we have secured a reputation for providing an excellent, personal, and professional service, offering unrivalled quality and scientific technical advice.
