H.A.R Petroleum Services Limited was first established in 1999 in the United Kingdom. The company was focused on supply and distribution of petroleum products into West Africa. Thereafter, the company was renamed as HARPS UK Ltd for better corporate branding, and HARPS Holding Nigeria Limited was incorporated to house the businesses in Nigeria. Over the last fifteen years, the group has grown and diversified into various sectors.

Due to our involvements in the petroleum industry, we took the natural step to set up a marine division in 2012. The Marine Division is headquartered in Singapore, and we have additional teams in Lagos, Calabar, and Accra. Our team in Lagos provides the local support and is able to assist with the operational and technical requirements of our fleet in West Africa.
