GOSS was founded in 2000 with a purpose to provide dedicated manpower service to the offshore industry. During the initial years of operation, the focus was on providing personnel to offshore drilling contractor operations in the Dutch, Danish, German and British sectors of the North Sea.

From its inception GOSS has been utilising a strict candidate screening procedure, going to great lengths to ensure that candidates not only have the necessary skills, but also have the right attitude to work that matches the client’s company culture. This approach, together with our ability to deliver on our promises and adapt to client’s needs, have earned GOSS the reputation of a reliable business partner in the industry.

In 2008, driven by the demand from its clients to serve them globally, GOSS expanded its operations into new regions, entering West Africa and South American markets. A number of representative offices have been opened to better serve our clients in the international markets.

In 2010 GOSS entered Offshore Wind, Dredging and Maritime industries, supplying manpower personnel to a wide range of projects both offshore and onshore. Building on its continuous success, GOSS has expanded its operations in the USA and Middle East markets and has opened representative offices there in 2015.

2016 has been a year of transformation for GOSS. A wide range of consultancy services have been introduced, including E&P Consultancy, Commissioning & Project Management, Expert Witness and Process/Procedure review. Building on years of experience in managing is own contractors, dedicated Contractor Management service has been introduced, allowing clients to consolidate all of its contractors and fixed-term employees under GOSS. Last but not least, GOSS has introduced Optimum Stacking®, a unique drilling rig stacking method, offering unit owners highly favourable conditions and unparalleled flexibility.
