Saga comments

OCS HR has a strong niche-position within complex HR solutions for the maritime- and offshore industry. Despite a challenging macro environment due to low oil price over time, the company has managed to keep its growth ambitions with regards to sales and profitability. The positive development of the company in combination with a successful sales process resulted in favourable terms for our clients.
