30th Year Anniversary

By | News

15th January 2020 saw Trinity International Services celebrate its 30th Anniversary year.  The achievements of the organisation is the result of the combined effort of staff, clients, suppliers and advisors working together over the 30 years.

Trinity International Services was founded in 1990, and has grown to deliver support to organisations in the energy sector internationally, operating in the UK, continental Europe, Greenland, Canada, USA, Brazil, Nigeria, Angola, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Middle East, Far East and Australasia.

Through its hard work and success, the Trinity family are proud to have achieved some great accolades, winning a Queens Award for Enterprise in 2003 and again in 2005, in recognition of its outstanding achievement in International Trade.

Trinity has also provided a complete food and beverage service to Her Majesty the Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee garden parties at Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside, Scotland. Each event saw attendance of some 3,000 guests, and 500 staff and performers. Both occasions were great successes, and allowed Trinity International Services to add Her Majesty to its client list.

This year due to COVID-19 challenges Trinity has not managed to celebrate in their usual style, so decided to get together in a less traditional but forward-thinking way, raising a glass with their remote working team in a Microsoft TEAMS virtual party.

Stuart MacBride, CEO says: “Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our company’s success over the years. We greatly appreciate and value the hard work and support we have received from our staff, clients, partners and suppliers, without this we would not be here raising a glass today. Hopefully we will be able to get together in person for a proper celebration before the year is out. Until then, stay safe.”
