Clarkson’s Gibb buys first-aid innovator for offshore wind sector

UK Clarksons broker has expanded its operation portfolio with the takeover of first-aid innovator Trauma Resus.

The London-based company said Gibb Group Limited, a Clarksons port services subsidiary and the supplier of PPE and MRO to the energy sector, has bought Trauma & Resuscitation Services (Trauma Resus), described as a first-aid innovator. The price has not been disclosed.

The aim is to increase Gibb Group’s services, extending its coverage of the oil and gas, marine, and renewable energy sectors, with the addition of the Trauma Resus EURIECA program, which is a first aid for the offshore wind sector.

The EURIECA program is an advanced first aid program, as described by Clarksons, designed specifically for the renewable energy sector, and is complemented by a clinical governance framework, supply of emergency medical equipment, training, and the provision of offshore medics.

Andi Case, chief executive of Clarksons, pointed out that “The acquisition of Trauma Resus aligns with the wider group strategy of expanding our breadth to meet the ever-increasing needs of our clients.

“Gibb Group is key to our port services end-to-end service offering, and the addition of Trauma Resus continues the development of our extensive activities in the renewable energy sector.”

Danny Rogers, managing director of Gibb Group, said: “The enlarged offering will enable us to provide our shared customer base with a comprehensive spectrum of offshore safety services and pave the way to develop further products and services to support ever-evolving client needs.

“Leading PPE coupled with robust sector-specific first aid training will ensure our customers can work more safely, more confidently, and more responsibly.”
