HOUSTON, January 29, 2019 – Oceaneering International, Inc., announces that its subsidiary Oceaneering Australia Pty. Limited has joined Supply Nation, an organization that works to develop procurement policies that modify and redirect spend to include the traditionally underutilized indigenous business sector.

This partnership reinforces Oceaneering’s ongoing commitment to diversity and is one of a number of complementary initiatives the organization is championing within the region. Other projects include:

  • Working with Reconciliation Australia to further develop a Reconciliation Action Plan
  • Increasing Indigenous employment through support of various collaboration programs
  • Employing and training local and indigenous inspection personnel for non-destructive testing (NDT) projects

Roy Andrich, General Manager, Asset Integrity at Oceaneering said, “We have grown a strong national business within Australia, making significant investment in equipment, people and facilities. We’re aligned closely with Supply Nation’s commitment to localization and have invested heavily to retain, attract and develop skilled and local talent.

“Our new formal relationship with Supply Nation will actively promote local and indigenous business across Australia. We look forward to building on our success in this area with the goal of ensuring that support to indigenous communities becomes integral within our business.”

Laura Berry, Supply Nation Chief Executive Officer said, “We are delighted to welcome Oceaneering into the Supply Nation community and look forward to working with them to develop their supplier diversity footprint. Supply Nation’s mission is to facilitate, encourage and promote business between corporate Australia and Government agencies and indigenous owned businesses, and we feel that having Oceaneering on board will be a great addition to help us achieve this goal.”

Oceaneering is also a member of Reconciliation WA, working in partnership to develop a framework that covers Respect, Relationships, Opportunities and Progress Reporting.
