MEMBER NEWS: Fulkrum strengthens its multi-industry focus with new name and identity

Fulkrum, a global provider of technical personnel specialising in QA/QC, inspection and vendor surveillance services to the energy industry, has announced the launch of its new identity.

Known to the industry as Fulkrum Technical Resources (FTR), the company, which has celebrated its tenth anniversary earlier this year, will now officially be known as Fulkrum. The rebrand comes as a response to the ever-changing energy industry landscape and Fulkrum’s expansion into new territories and sectors.

Operating in four key regions – the Americas, Europe and Africa, AsiaPacific and the Middle East – over the years, Fulkrum has seen significant growth in each region, diversifying its offering into new industries. With a proven track record in both the oil and gas, petrochemical and renewables sectors, Fulkrum’s new identity reinforces the multi-industry focus of the company.

Owen Gibbons, Commercial Director, said: “As the energy industry evolves, so do we at Fulkrum. We are delighted to be acknowledging our strong track record, business growth and also expansion into the developing renewables market with an exciting new rebrand.

With the change in name and identity we remain focused on our core values, as we continue to expand our range of service and support our cross-industry clients.”

Fulkrum’s Technical Director, Andrew Bethel, added: “Our global team’s excellent work and dedication in the past ten years allowed us to not only strengthen our global footprint and grow our portfolio but also build strong, lasting relationships with our clients.

We continue to carry those values, with the new brand reflecting our commitment to supporting all our customers by providing a market-leading service.”

Get in touch

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
