Our History

Harris Pye became a Joulon company in December 2017. Joulon was founded to create an integrated entity to provide asset management services to the energy industry globally. The investment in the platform has been made primarily by KKR Asia Fund II, which is a $6 billion fund that seeks to invest in a wide range of industries in the global marketplace.  Harris Pye was Joulon’s thirteenth acquisition in 18 months. 

Prior to that we have over three decades’ experience in the provision of repairs, upgrades and conversions to the marine and associated industrial sectors and over a decade in the offshore oil industry. We have a 1,700 global team based in 17 facilities and offices around the world.

Operating worldwide on a 24/7 basis, our philosophy is to provide a global service with a focus on supplying top quality, fast and efficient customer service. Now, as a Joulon company, our role is the effective delivery of project management and execution throughout the energy and power sectors.
