A NORTH-east engineering solutions business has made an encouraging start to the year with the announcement of new contracts worth a combined £750,000.
SengS, based in Ellon’s Balmacassie Commercial Park, provides engineering, testing, control and hydraulic systems, and tooling to the oil and gas, aerospace and defence industries,.
The business has designed, manufactured and delivered various projects, including a containerised test unit for an Aberdeen-based oilfield equipment firm and kicked-off its first project in Spain with the design of a bespoke test facility for a valve manufacturing company that will be housed at its plant near Bilbao.
The business, which was acquired by private-equity backed manufacturer Pryme Group in November 2016, has invested more than £4million in recent years in developing its test facility.
This has included enhancements to existing pressure testing capability through the addition of a custom-built 60ft plain end test rig and a large, external water test tank that can accommodate a full Xmas tree stack-up.
David Benison, SengS managing director, said: “After taking on the role in 2019, my immediate focus was to stabilise the business and put us in a better place to embark on the growth plan that will move the business forward.
“As part of this, we have strengthened our engineering capability and are well positioned to manage the turnkey projects that will utilise the breadth of the Pryme Group companies in satisfying our customers’ requirements.”
Since 2012, the company has successfully delivered more than 600 projects across multiple disciplines for clients in the North Sea, Norway, Azerbaijan, the Middle East, and West Africa.
