The Aberdeen based company  ‘Global Corrosion Solutions Group’  launches G.C.S.G. Training

The Aberdeen based company ‘Global Corrosion Solutions Group’ launches G.C.S.G. Training 


Global Corrosion Solutions Group (G.C.S.G) formally known as Aberdeen Corrosion Solutions has undertaken a rebrand since OGV Energy last interviewed Nicky Adams, Managing Director, in March 2019. The rebrand included the addition of new sectors to the business, including training courses. 

Nicky previously stated “Looking ahead, we already have a number of potential new clients in the pipeline that will enable us to expand our capabilities and we are passionate about becoming a recognised industry service provider ourselves. However, we are going to have to walk before we can run and that is something we are very aware of, with a fast paced industry that is constantly improving and developing we need to stay current without getting too far ahead of ourselves.”

This past year has been a great year of development for the company as they began to expand their market out with Aberdeen, they found that having “Aberdeen” in the company title somewhat limited them from offering their services further afield. Rebranding to Global Corrosion Solutions Group has increased their client reach with the company now working in Asia, Trinidad, and the US. 

Despite growing globally, the company has maintained a focus within the Aberdeen area by expanding training opportunities for fabric maintenance providers. Through this, they have worked to implement 3 news sectors into their business. These include G.C.S.G. Service Provider, G.C.S.G. Distribution and G.C.S.G. Training. Since launching Distribution, the company has teamed up with Duromar Coatings ltd to distribute low VOC, environmentally friendly paints. Global Corrosion Solutions Group plans to sign similar distribution agreements with various companies around the world. The introduction of the Training sector aims to be the fundamental part of the business. Nicky Adams has plans to bring all training services to one place, in the Energy Hub of Scotland, Aberdeen.

Global Corrosion Solution Group is planning to be the first training provider in the world to provide all 5 accreditations, already offering SSPC TTP and ICATS qualifications, the company aims to have OPITO, ECITB and NACE training under their belt in the near future. Following this, they also plan to open a rope access training facility with IRATA and a global wind organisation training facility with GWO, bringing together all necessary training to one location.

This new concept has the flexibility to adapt to the new world we are about to enter, with plans to build Perspex training centres with new social distance measures in place amid Covid-19, allowing clients, staff and new starts to get the adequate training they require whilst feeling safe, both quickly and efficiently. 

With 12 years of experience in Oil and Gas, the company is very versatile and looks to target every sector with their expertise. With contracts already in place within the nuclear sector, they hope to branch out and make more of an impact within the wind sector and other industries in the following months.

Through all of this, Nicky’s main motivation continues to be his 19-month-old son Reid Adams, with the hope of passing a successful business down to him in the future.
