“We are extremely proud that Aramark - Offshore was awarded winner of both the Hotel & Catering Sector and the RoSPA Scotland Trophy which speaks volumes about our approach to service delivery in offshore environments. Both awards highlight our continuous commitment in achieving highest standards of health and safety and our zero tolerance for unnecessary risk.”

Since the 1970s, Aramark Offshore has been at the forefront of providing ‘hotel’ services to oil and gas installations around the world. These services range from ‘soft’ areas such as providing administrative and accommodation facilities, to ‘harder’ areas such as maintaining the accommodation; as well as being able to convert and refurbish them.
The focus of the company is mainly on the North Sea installations, although, in 2002 Aramark was awarded a contract with the Caspian Drilling Company for the service of two rigs in Azerbaijan, the Dada Gorgund and the Istiglal, which made the company the dominant market leader in this geographical area.
