Edgo has demonstrated over many years the spirit and determination to succeed in physically harsh and politically complex environments.
When it was founded in 1956, it was one of the first privately owned engineering companies in the Middle East. At that time its principal activities included drilling services, hydro-geological studies and land development. The wells that we drilled, often in challenging desert locations, produced the water used to grow cities such as Dubai and Riyadh. Edgo eventually became the largest water well drilling contractor in the region while providing services to the major oil companies and EPC contractors.
Edgo’s formation came about in response to the growing needs of countries in the Middle East to develop their infrastructure. Initially the company focused on projects associated with the oil, gas, water and power industries. Over the years it has diversified into construction, telecommunications, technology, real estate development and project financing.
Today a network has been established with qualified local partners and complimentary international companies that are able to deliver viable integrated service solutions. Yet a pioneering, resilient spirit still pervades the group even as it has evolved into a multi disciplinary business operating throughout the Middle East and in Africa, Europe and North America.
Currently Edgo serves energy markets in these regions through 33 bases in 20 countries with a focus on oilfield services and logistic support.
How is it done? We believe there are four strands to Edgo’s success - its people; its integrated service solutions; its local partnerships; and its roots in the communities that it serves – all underpinned by a long-term commitment to our customers and our partners.
