KimberMills International has seen a 15% increase in sales after securing new contracts to supply fluid handling, pipeline, valve and pump components.
The recent successes make it the company’s most popular sector and it is looking to build on this even further by becoming a member of NOF Energy, a business development organisation dedicated to helping firms win new contracts in the energy industry.
Hamish Campbell, sales manager at KimberMills International, commented: “The last twelve months have seen a rise in price per barrel and this is driving a number of new projects in the oil and gas sector.
“We are certainly benefitting from this, with a lot of our core customers growing their export markets and turning to us for support in meeting increases in volume and involvement in the design and manufacture of new components.”
He continued: “The challenge for us now is to get into markets that we haven’t previously been in and that is why we’ve joined NOF Energy. It has an amazing wealth of contacts and works with members to secure opportunities in power, downstream/upstream oil and gas and the rapidly growing offshore wind arena.
“Once we have the contacts and the initial enquiries, our speed of response and front-end engineering solutions speak for themselves, ensuring we can deliver on budget and to the highest possible quality.”
Larry Joyce, chairman of KimberMills International, concluded: “All the talk about next year is focused on Brexit and uncertainty. Whilst we are mindful of this, we prefer to look at the opportunities currently emerging and there’s lots of enquiries we are currently quoting that could be reshored to the UK.”
