Gateshead-based Express Engineering
, leader in innovative manufacturing, assembly and testing solutions for the subsea energy industry, has opened a new international assembly and test centre.
The investment in a £3.5 million 48,000ft2
purpose-built centre on the Team Valley trading estate will support the company’s expansion into key global markets. Expansion of its capabilities is part of Express Engineering’s strategy to supply assembled and tested actuators, connections and tooling for wellheads and subsea production systems for the oil and gas sector.
As the new centre gears up in the coming months, the company intends to expand its team of skilled project engineers and managers to work on new offshore technologies and associated upstream products now under development.
Chairman Chris Thompson said: “We have a healthy order book for 2021 and anticipate significant market sector growth in the next three years. The new centre positions us strongly for further expansion and success as we look forward to providing customers with the most competitive, high-quality subsea products.
“As an international subsea engineering sector specialist, the additional capacity will significantly enhance Express Engineering’s response times and operational performance and productivity while maintaining the highest standards of safety and reliability.”
Working with customers including TechnipFMC, Baker Hughes and Aker Solutions, Express Engineering is a significant exporter of products, operating within various geographical areas, including the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, east coast of Brazil, east and west coasts of Africa and Australasia.
