Bryce said: “2019 smashed all our projections, leaving us well-placed to grow the business further in 2020.

“We do not get involved in the engineering side of the industry, we concentrate purely on providing accurate survey data to the various engineering contractors and operators in the industry. As a result, we help our clients to reduce project costs with our ‘first-time fit’ philosophy and enhanced safety.”

Bell added: “Our innovative approach provides real-time understanding of assets, allowing clients to make informed and accurate planning decisions.

“We are thrilled that the industry has embraced the value that our services can add to their business and look forward to growing Survey 3Di’s global footprint over the coming year.”
