Our Values

P&S aim to deliver against three guiding principles:


Key to our guiding principles is Independence. P&S are a privately owned company. This allows us to provide unbiased, qualified and technically informed opinions, fundamental to many of the services offered. 


With years of experience in the Marine and Subsea industries, we understand these markets and pride ourselves in delivering highly professional services across the spectrum of specialist services. 


The maturity of our business speaks for itself, although we continue to evolve and invest in new technologies to keep us at the forefront of industry for another 100 plus years. 

P&S have established and proven itself as a highly regarded partner for many clients, but we don’t take that lightly. We understand that we need to continue to prove our worth and deliver the same high quality service, first time, every time.
