Atlas Professionals, the Netherlands-based specialist recruiter, will set up a new office in Houston, Texas, with an aim to tap into the country’s offshore energy market, including offshore wind.

The news about Atlas’ US expansion plans comes shortly after another European company established its US entity, driven by the emerging offshore wind industry in the country. Namely, last month, the UK offshore geoscience and geotechnical engineering consultancy, Cathie Associates, has established Cathie Associates Inc in Boston, Massachusetts, to serve offshore wind development in the United States.

However, Atlas’ US team will initially focus on the company’s specialist markets including Drilling & Well Services, Engineering & Project Controls and special competencies such as Offshore Survey, Management & QC and Seismic, before breaking into offshore wind – a developing market on the east coast, according to the recruiter.

Laura Smith, Atlas Business Manager for Renewables, who will be managing a new specialist team in the US, said: “Whilst Europe leads the way in the production of offshore wind, the United States is only just beginning to invest in large scale offshore wind energy projects.

“Whilst long term it will be vital to engage, train and invest in local US professionals, the short term provides opportunities for European professionals to share their knowledge and experience with a wealth of companies in the US supply chain.”
