Since 2002, Airswift has provided manpower and mobilisation services for some of the largest projects taking place in South Korea. After almost a decade of supporting these large-scale projects, Airswift cemented our presence in the country in 2012 with the opening of a dedicated South Korea office in Geoje to continue supporting the future activity across all yard locations. Our second office opened its doors in Ulsan not long thereafter.
To further enhance our service offering in South Korea and build on our success, in 2014 Airswift acquired KITCO, a leading supplier of manpower, accommodation, local transport and procurement services in South Korea since 1985. This deal created Airswift KITCO, the only provider of end-to-end local and expatriate workforces in South Korea and a single organisation for our clients’ workforce needs.
We maintain a database of 14,000 qualified local oil and gas professionals and a 96% average contractor satisfaction rate. Our teams support various onshore and offshore projects within marine engineering, heavy industries, shipbuilding, and infrastructure engineering across Geoje, Ulsan, Seoul, Daegu, Busan, Jinhae, and Mokpo. With over 40 years of global and South Korean experience, Airswift is the ideal one-stop shop for workforce supply, mobilisation and management requirements.
Airswift holds ISO 9001, 14001, 27001 and OSHAS18001 accreditations and is the only local services provider acting under the UK Bribery Act, UK Criminal Finances Act, and US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
In addition to our core services of Talent Acquisition, Global Mobility, Consulting and Managed Solutions, Airswift provides other procurement services, sourcing and supplying whatever the project needs may be, from training to equipment.
