Norwegian oil services firm Aker Solutions to create 1300 new jobs in London

The Telegraph reported that Norwegian oil services firm Aker Solutions says it aims to build up a 1 700-strong London engineering hub thereby creating 1 300 new jobs by 2015, as growth in global oil and gas markets drives demand for the company’s technologies and services.

Aker Solutions provides oilfield products, systems and services for customers in the oil and gas industry, and is listed on the Oslo stock exchange. The company, which employs more than 3000 people in the UK, opened a new office in Chiswick Park, West London, last year.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Aker Solution’s decision to create 1300 new jobs at a new engineering hub in Chiswick is great news for the local economy and it is a vote of confidence in the skill, expertise and professionalism of our engineering sector.”
