Prezioso was a leading provider of insulation, scaffolding and surface coating services to maintain and extend the lifespan of industrial and marine structures. Its services were provided to oil and gas installations, electricity generating plants, water and sanitation installations, and industrial plants with customers including multi-nationals such as EDF, Total, BP, Exxon, and Shell. Prezioso was the market leader for these services in the off-shore O&G segment in Western Africa and the French nuclear segment, and also had strong presence in the North Sea. In February 2014, Prezioso acquired Linjebygg Offshore, a Norwegian oil and gas services company, to form the Prezioso Linjebygg group.
