Gibb Group strengthens safety and survival offering with acquisition of Trauma Resus
Clarkson PLC (“Clarksons”) is pleased to announce that Gibb Group Limited, a Clarksons Port Services subsidiary and the leading supplier of PPE and MRO to the energy sector, has completed the acquisition of first aid innovator, Trauma & Resuscitation Services Limited (“Trauma Resus”).
The acquisition will increase Gibb Group’s service offering, extending its strong coverage of the oil & gas, marine, and renewable energy sectors with the inclusion of the Trauma Resus EURIECA® program, which is recognised as the global standard for advanced first aid for the offshore wind sector.
“The acquisition of Trauma Resus aligns with the wider group strategy of expanding our breadth to meet the ever-increasing needs of our clients. Gibb Group is key to our Port Services end-to-end service offering, and the addition of Trauma Resus continues the development of our extensive activities in the renewable energy sector.”
Andi CaseClarksons CEO
Trauma Resus operates in the US and UK markets, servicing clients across the energy, transportation, logistics, emergency response, and healthcare sectors. The EURIECA® program is an advanced first aid program designed specifically for the renewable energy sector and is complemented by a robust clinical governance framework, supply of emergency medical equipment, training, and the provision of offshore medics. Through the acquisition, Trauma Resus’ existing client base will benefit from access to Gibb Group’s extensive product range and sector expertise.
“Whether at the top of a wind turbine, or working at sea level to decommission end-of-life assets, ensuring teams and assets are as risk-free as possible underpins our core ethos of ‘work safe, home safe’. We’re delighted to welcome the Trauma Resus team into the business. The enlarged offering will enable us to provide our shared customer base with a comprehensive spectrum of offshore safety services and pave the way to develop further products and services to support ever-evolving client needs. Leading PPE coupled with robust sector-specific first aid training will ensure our customers can work more safely, more confidently, and more responsibly.”

The 17-strong Trauma Resus team will continue to work from their offices in New York and Warrington, UK, in addition to the Gibb Group warehouse in Rhode Island.
We have built a strong relationship with Gibb Group as a strategic partner and reseller and now look forward to being part of the wider Clarksons group. The acquisition presents a fantastic opportunity, and we share an ambition to advance the level of innovation, safety, and sustainability across sectors. Our combined offering will help us reach a global customer base in a more joined-up and efficient way.”
