The Ruddick Int'l Group  

Market Research & Planning Consultants for Oilfield,
Offshore & Environmental Equipment Manufacturers and Contractors

The last decade and a half has brought incredible change to the petroleum and offshore industries. Advancements in technology and heightened competition have narrowed opportunity for some, while resulting in explosive opportunity for others. Our experience concludes that most successful companies learn to manage change through a blend of "strategic thinking," a balanced corporate culture, and staying in touch with the marketplace.

Our business is providing independent, objective plans, strategic feedback from the marketplace, and recommendations based on the competitive position and corporate distinctives of the organization. Our services are designed to point to the turns in the market and emerging opportunities. They reflect market feedback with pivotal insights into the pulse of a customer base or market segment. Feedback that provides a realistic foundation to developing more effective, competitive, credible corporate development and marketing programs.

We've been assisting clients since the mid-seventies with services that translate into such benefits as identifying and capitalizing on emerging opportunities, avoidance of internal biases that miss the turns in the market, fresh insights, an internal commitment to the corporate vision and purpose, and more innovative, market-driven approaches designed as the basis for enhanced, stable performance and long term actionable results.

As advisors to senior management, the services offered by Ruddick Int'l can supplement its clients' in-house skills and talents, or serve as a stand-alone outside market planning department.

Ruddick Int'l provides strategic plans and senior management reports, the conclusions of which are based on primary feedback from the marketplace.
