LOC is pleased to announce the acquisition of SCUA Middle East Consultancy with effect from 1 April 2013. SCUA Middle East will become part of LOC Middle East, which will continue to respond to all types of marine insurance claims, casualty, loss prevention, engineering and energy issues in the increasingly complex shipping, oil and gas markets.
This acquisition combines LOC Middle East and SCUA Middle East to form a team of nearly 30 staff, including marine engineers, master mariners, naval architects and civil/structural engineers with wide-ranging skills and knowledge
Managed by Pat Cannie, SCUA Middle East has grown to be one of the most respected consultancies in marine engineering & insurance claims across the region. Pat stated, “I’m delighted that my team and I are joining LOC. I’m certain that the extra resources in the enlarged Dubai office will enable us to continue serving existing and future clients to the same high standards as before.”
Paul Miles, LOC Middle East’s Managing Director, sees this as a very attractive acquisition: “This additional expertise complements LOC Middle East’s current profile, contributes to our strategic growth plans, and improves the service lines we provide, benefitting our client base tremendously.”
