In 1850 our predecessors were centre stage in the evolution of what would become the telecoms and internet industry. They overcame extraordinary challenges to connect all corners of the world, through innovation, grit and sheer determination, so that the extraordinary became ordinary. From the Eastern Telegraph Company in the 1800s through to the Global Marine Group of today, our desire to lead innovation remains strong. We continue to deliver first-class solutions to the offshore renewables, oil and gas, and utilities sectors.
Working in partnership has always been at the core of how we work, using our expertise to deliver our customers’ goals. Our offshore and onshore teams, across our business units, are dedicated to building on the foundations of customer relationships and delivering a great service.
Today the Global Marine Group – composed of Global Marine, Global Offshore, CWind, and now OceanIQ – is full of extremely capable people, sharing a wealth of knowledge and constantly achieving excellence. That passion is evident in the entire team, as together we are committed to engineering a clean and connected future.
