    NOV has a rich and compelling history in the UK, dating back to 1910. We began by supplying most of the Middle East with innovative drilling equipment. Now we’re one of the leading equipment manufacturers in the North Sea, providing complete solutions to our valued partners. The journey has included the strategic acquisition of various UK companies, making us the vibrant organization that we are today.  

    We have more than 2,500 talented individuals in England and Scotland. Our expertise across our three Segments – NOV Rig Technologies, NOV Wellbore Technologies and NOV Completion & Production Solutions – and our in-country investments allow us to provide solutions and support at a local level.

    The UK is thriving with industry activity, and the numerous NOV facilities across the region connect us to our global network with ease. Our diverse range of equipment can tap into other markets in addition to oil and gas, such as the renewables industry, agriculture and waste water treatment. Deep local knowledge and broad, long-standing experience keeps us at the forefront of this distinct region and prepared to respond to its ever-evolving needs.
