Before we were Blakemere we were Velocious and then Proserv Australia.
Our history under these company banners has meant that we’ve tracked 13 years of success
in our native subsea environment. Under Velocious we were able to fill a gap in the market;
a gap that was seeking high quality, rapid engineering services for the domestic subsea
sector. Our team became leaders in the industry and retained this position under Proserv
while also acquiring a global footprint. While the access to overseas projects and non-traditional
products and services brought a wealth of knowledge to our work, Proserv’s global restructure
gave us pause. In favour of autonomy, scale, and market diversity; the Australian entity was
purchased in 2019 and is now Blakemere.


Why choose Blakemere? Because of the people; their ethic, their capabilities and their commitment. We are proud to be:

Practical: We are not just desk jockeys: everyone on the team can engineer a solution and then go down to the workshop and build it. We all have scars on our hands from working on the tools.

Problem Solvers: We are motivated by the thrill of solving problems. If we get a call from someone with a problem, then we will solve it.

Competitive: We are passionate about success, thrive in competition and win on merit. We have an unblemished track record in the field and we are personally invested in all our solutions.

Agile: We are a dynamic team of self-starters. There is no decision lag in our organisation – if we decide to get after it, it happens immediately. We have no inertia of bureaucracy. We have an end-to-end supply chain from drawings on paper through raw materials to tested products
