MSI was formed in September 2003 by Stefan Stimson, Sidney Bilski and Bruce Spolander, former colleagues at a major survey multi-national (Thales GeoSolutions) where they were responsible for the overall management, marketing and operations of the global metocean business. After 3 years of steady growth, MSI opened an office in Australia to support projects in the Australia and Asia region. 

The management team has over 50 years experience in the offshore oil and gas industry, and is supported by a dedicated team of highly qualified and experienced engineers with vast global experience. From offices in South Africa and Australia, the company has conducted projects in over 40 countries worldwide, with 140+ clients that include the offshore oil & gas market, coastal engineers, dredging companies and port authorities.

MSI continuously invests in state of the art instrumentation and owns and operates a large pool of equipment, including wave buoys, current meters / profilers, tide gauges, conductivity, temperature and depth profilers (CTDs), and weather stations. The company works with all the leading manufacturers to ensure the most suitable equipment is used for each project. In Australia, MSI also holds a number of agencies for the sale of a variety of oceanographic instrumentation.

Both MSI's offices operate ISO-certified Quality Management Systems, and their HSE Management System complies with OGP and NORSOK requirements. This ensures that all clients, whether supermajor oil company, construction firm or local engineering consultant, receive the high level of service and safety expected of a specialist in metocean data collection.

Achilles — Our business is built on the idea that, in an ever-more-connected world, we're not just responsible for what we do – we're also accountable for what's done on our behalf. And where there's accountability, there's a need for control… When we started out in 1990 operating in the gas and oil industry, we saw that control was something buyers ... Moreneeded more of. So we designed our community model, our supporting services and the technology that powers them to address this need. We wanted to drive a new kind of procurement with less risk, less cost and less compliance issues. At the same time, wanted to bring suppliers into the fold – to help them meet buyers' needs while reducing their own qualification burdens.

Today, with all kinds of stakeholders holding businesses to ever-higher standards, it's even more important for businesses to have a complete picture of their supply chains – not just in terms of their business performance, but their ethical and environmental standards too. Against this backdrop, our drive to develop and refine our offering has only increased.

Now we're working from offices all over the globe, serving a network of over 800 buyers and 175,000 suppliers in all kinds of industries. As such, we're proud to be part of a truly worldwide community dedicated to raising standards and doing business in ways that benefit everyone.
