Ogier Jersey has advised Kentz Corporation Limited, the holding company of the Kentz engineering and construction group, on its successful move to the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange. Kentz, a global engineering specialist solutions provider, graduated to a Primary Listing on the London Stock Exchange on Friday 22 July 2011.

Kentz has over 11,000 employees in 27 countries serving a blue chip client base primarily in the oil and gas, petrochemical and mining and metals sectors. It has a proven track record of delivering mechanical, electrical, controls and instrumentation engineering, construction and management services in some of the most remote locations on earth.
The Ogier Jersey team advising Kentz was led by Tim Morgan with assistance from Marc Yates and Stephen Ferguson. Tim Morgan commented “Ogier is delighted to have assisted Kentz with its move to the Main Market and looks forward to continuing to advise the Company on elements of the listing and its business going forward.”
