Scottish commercial property agency, FG Burnett, has formed an alliance with SR-Commercial Property in Norway.
FG Burnett believes the agreement will benefit many Aberdeen-based oil, gas and energy sector businesses which have associated or subsidiary companies operating in Norway.
SR-Commercial Property is a division of a leading Norwegian bank, Sparebank 1 SR-Bank, and incorporates real estate agency Vågen Eiendomsmegling and Eiendomsmegler 1 Naering, the market leaders in Stavanger and Rogaland, which is the centre of oil and gas activities in Norway.
The alliance will support FG Burnett clients with property requirements in Norway and work in the same way for SR-Commercial Property’s clients who have business interests in Scotland.
Angus MacCuish, FG Burnett managing director, said: “Aberdeen traditionally has strong links to Norway so this alliance is a great match for both our companies.
”Clients who have existing businesses or are looking to expand in Norway will be assured that we can call on the country’s leading commercial property agency to provide the best and most up to date advice to suit their property requirements.
“In addition to sourcing operational premises, both companies will be able to advise on potential investment opportunities in our home countries. We believe this is a unique tie-up between two leading companies in the Scottish and Norwegian commercial property sectors and are confident this alliance will offer multiple benefits to our portfolio of clients.”
SR-Commercial Property specialises in brokering, consultancy, property management, project financing and property development, while Sparebank 1 SR-Bank is a premium Norwegian brand with a 170 year heritage.
SR-Commercial Property spokeswoman, Marit Cecilie Albretsen, said: “Aberdeen and Stavanger have long been known as the oil capitals of their respective countries and cooperation between the oil and energy companies in both cities is well established and has been very beneficial.
“So far, however, there has not been any form of alliance between commercial property companies in our cities and this is something which I think is long overdue. It is clear to us that FG Burnett share the same values and incorporate the same work ethics as SR-Commercial Property and we are delighted to enter in to this alliance which I am sure will be of great benefit to both parties.”
