Bakker Oilfield Supply and Scaves are joining forces!

26 April 2019

Bakker Oilfield Supply Coevorden BV (B.O.S.) and Scaves BV click well together and have had an intensive cooperation for years.

In addition to its original main activities in the oil and gas industry, B.O.S. has also been focusing on geothermal energy for a number of years now and, as a result of the energy transition, has a clear focus on innovation and incorporation into new industries.

Scaves, based in Schoonebeek, has over 20 years of experience in providing training and advice in the field of safety, quality, health, welfare, environment and occupational health and safety legislation. In addition to its initial focus on the construction and industrial sectors, Scaves has been working specifically in the oil, gas and geothermal industries as well as in the petrochemical and process industries for many years now. Within all these industries, Scaves has also developed from C.R.E.W. into a specialist in the field of rope access and rescue work.

As a result of the intensive cooperation among them, the synergy, i.e. the result where the total is more than the sum of the two parts, became very clear. From that perspective, B.O.S. will take over Scaves as of 01-05-2019 and Scaves, like B.O.S., will become part of Bakker Groep Coevorden BV. Striving to optimise the cooperation and the continuity of both companies is therefore a priority for all parties involved.

After more than 10 years of dedication in running the company, the current management of Scaves will resign his position as of 01-05-2019. The company name and location will remain unchanged, but the cooperation with B.O.S. will become stronger and more efficient. The current management and staff of Scaves would like to thank all their clients and suppliers for the trust they have placed in them.

B.O.S. and Bakker Groep Coevorden BV welcome the Scaves organisation and its clients and look forward to the further development of the cooperation.
