Did You Know We Mobilize Expats & Secondees? {Infographic}

A considerable segment of our industry relies on the discoveries and services of workers from all around the world. When major oil & gas companies kick-off large projects, they find themselves in need of subject matter experts and service specialists, that aren’t always local. To address this common situation, companies seek out Expats and Secondees to fulfill job functions for these special projects.

While you know us for our contract staffing, payrolling and other project support services, you may not know that we also provide global mobilization services. Over the past several years, Clover has successfully and safely mobilized and demobilized Expats and Secondee workers.

Within our mobilization services, our concierge approach has placed clients at ease, as we take responsibility for everything. From visas & work permits to travel accommodations & setting up the Secondees’ local bank account – we manage all those time-consuming details.

Mobilization Services Infographic 3For the workers, we offer international insurance options, travel management, explicit instructions and orientation to their new residence, transportation (even to & from the airport!), living accommodations, and of course, methods for payment. Clover is committed to making Expat and Secondee experiences as comfortable and smooth as possible! Meanwhile, clients benefit from these arrangements by saving time and minimizing their burden to one service provider – Clover!

If it is easier to hear about our international mobilization excellence from a third party – check out what a past secondee said about their experience with Clover:

“I’ve only ever had great experiences with Clover’s mobilization services! They work very efficiently to ensure all the logistics for my stay are accounted for. Unlike other organizations I’ve done secondee work through, Clover has always ensured I have travel, lodging, transportation, communication and insurance accommodations. Whenever I have gone on an assignment through Clover, they have successfully maintained constant communication from the moment I left my home, from the moment I returned. I greatly appreciated their professionalism. For any of your mobilization needs, I would highly recommend you reach out to Clover to arrange the logistics for expat and secondee work.”

U.S.A. China France

He was born and bred in this area of Texas, in the industry itself, and knows how to provide culturally and technically fit candidates. Having worked on both sides of contract staffing, Charlie has built up a network of approximately 10,000+ individuals who contribute to the downstream, petrochemical and LNG industries.

Charlie’s territory ranges across the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast. Should you have any inquiries about the support Clover can provide in this region, feel free to call his Direct line at 281-994-5996, his Cell at 832-603-7263 or email him at Charlie.Reeves@CloverGS.com.

ANOTECH Energy Acquires Clover Global Solutions, LP

Houston, TX – September 26, 2016 – Clover Global Solutions, LP, a contingent workforce solution provider to upstream E&P, midstream pipelines and downstream chemical plants, refineries, and LNG operations, was officially acquired by ANOTECH Energy on July 28, 2016.

The acquisition brings together the global business landscape of ANOTECH Energy and Clover’s long standing relationships with an impressive portfolio of North American based global operators and a deep talent pool of staff contractors. This acquisition should deliver an immediate positive effect and most importantly, each company’s business will carry on as usual.

For ANOTECH Energy, this acquisition will enhance their previous position with the “Super Majors” and mid-cap US energy companies that operate domestically and internationally. The companies’ union adds proven manpower for drilling and completions and project support services.

For Clover, this means adding support for the civil, infrastructure, and mining industry, while also opening up employment opportunities by expanding its global reach to 63 countries.

Xavier Feuillatre, ANOTECH Energy Director, said: “By optimizing the strengths of both companies, this acquisition positions us for rapid growth in North America within our existing and potentially new client base.”

Chris Sutton, Clover Director, said: “It was clear from the beginning that our cultures aligned. Clover’s lean business model could be leveraged, and we could expand our global footprints significantly. Clover and ANOTECH are well known brands, both have exemplary safety records, and our clients do not overlap. We’re a good fit for one another.”

Carolyn Sutton, one of Clover Global founders and Managing Partner, has retired and will serve in an advisory capacity. Her retirement has opened up the opportunity to increase participation in charities and services addressing young women’s entrepreneurial development, elder care, juvenile diabetes, and cancer research.

Chris Sutton, Clover Partner, will assume the Director position for Clover. He will facilitate integration of the two companies, while continuing to drive Clover Drilling and Completions International manpower support expansions and help.
