Atlas Professionals specialises in Offshore Management and Quality Control, providing consultants to major Energy, Exploration and Production companies to oversee QC survey operations. We have over 30 years of experience in the energy industry, assisting clients with their projects from exploration through to production.
Atlas Professionals Management and Consultancy originated from the well known and widely respected repping agency South West Surveys (UK) Ltd or SWS, originally established in 1979. The Atlas Services Group took an interest in SWS during 2011 and after two years of successful collaboration acquired 100% shares in SWS during 2013. In 2015 we decided that rebranding SWS to Atlas Professionals would further strengthen our market position.
Business remains as usual with the Management and Consultancy services provided by our dedicated office based in Exeter in the South West of England where there are strong historical links to our maritime background. The team consists of motivated staff trained in all aspects of our services by in-house managers with direct survey, construction and marine experience.
