United Offshore Support (UOS) has completed its acquisition of the commercial and management businesses of German KGs UOS and Hartmann Offshore, three months after the merger's annoucement.

Brought together by Hayfin Capital Management and Breakwater Capital, the two organisations will merge into the UOS brand, based in Leer, Germany, and will manage a fleet of 13 anchor handlers.

UOS is led by chief executive Howard Woodcock, who joined the company in August this year.

Woodcock has over 35 years’ experience in the shipping, marine, and offshore oil and gas sectors, and before joining UOS spent 13 years as CEO of UK OSV owner Bibby Offshore.
