History

Vos Prodect Innovations – Always On Your Wavelength

From humble beginnings in the 1950s, the origins of Vos Group started within the oil and gas drilling industry. Gas was first discovered in the soil near Schoonebeek and Vos were contracted by the main supplier BPM, Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij (the predecessor of the current group NAM), to construct the oil and gas towers.

Throughout the years Vos Group worked extensively within the drilling industry, understanding the requirements and engineering solutions to coincide with technological advances within the industry. Vos Group had an early desire to always innovate and develop more cost effective solutions using the latest technology available.

In 1970, Vos Group expanded further and all the activities within the oil and gas industry were housed by a business unit called Foxdrill. Foxdrill became a global oil and gas drilling company. The next expansion was in 1990, where Vos Group ventured into the offshore industry along with Seafox Platforms.

Having accumulated all of this experience within the oil, gas and offshore industry, in the early 2000’s a company called Prodect was acquired by Vos Group. Prodect focused on delivering articulated pipes for the offshore power and telecom industry.

As time advanced in the subsea market, installation and operational requirements of the cables and manufacturers was rapidly changing. Instead of purely providing accessories for the cables, the dynamic of field completely shifted and Prodect transformed into an engineering solution company in addition to providing protection systems for cables. This was a natural cohesion between the business units, as Vos Group built up a wealth of knowledge within the oil and gas industry and Prodect was more involved within the offshore power and telecom cable industry. The combination of all three industries and sectors provided Vos Prodect Innovations with the perfect foundation to supply and engineer subsea protection systems.

You may be intrigued to understand the origins of the company name, especially the ‘Prodect’ segment, which is actually an acronym for ‘Professional, Design, Engineering, Consultancy & Trade’. These original core principles and values are implemented into each and every project that we work upon. With each project we continuously aim to learn and innovate our subsea product range, which assists in further extending our knowledge within the industry. This in turn allows us to specify the correct and most cost effective solutions for your project.
