Sparrows Group has announced it has expanded into Trinidad and Tobago, following an agreement to work in cooperation with Miguel Mechanical Services Ltd.
Miguel Mechanical Services will supply local expertise, labour, procurement and facilities. The Sparrows Group will deliver engineering and technical support, as well as training and competency assessment.
Stewart Mitchell, CEO at Sparrows Group, said: “Our partnership is a perfect fit in many ways. Both parties are specialists in crane services with a combined history of more than 90 years and we are extending our well established presence in the Americas. We were keen to work with Miguel Mechanical Services as their track-record of safe working practices and delivery on quality is in-keeping with our core values. Combining local knowledge with global engineering expertise and experience, we can provide customers in the region with an unmatched service covering all aspects of crane operation, maintenance and training.”
The agreement re-establishes Sparrows Group’s relationship with Anthony Miguel, the founder of Miguel Mechanical Services.
Following the project, Anthony founded his own company in 1988, which has grown to become the premier crane maintenance service company in Trinidad and Tobago.
Anthony Miguel, managing director at Miguel Mechanical Services, said: “The partnership with Sparrows Group enables us to provide an all-encompassing crane service that meets the needs of many operators in Trinidad and Tobago. We are working together to provide the most efficient and best possible lifting service available to the energy industry.”
Presently, the Sparrows Group has bases in Houston, Texas, several in Louisiana, and a joint venture, Sparrows BSM, in Macae, Brazil.
