Leading North West based high pressure engineering  company KW Designed Solutions has recently restructured; launching a new company KW Pressure Testing and introducing the KW Group to manage them both. They have also completely rebranded  the company, to help them stand out in the market.

A new state-of-the-art, specially constructed, in-house pressure testing facility is presently under development and due to open this coming Autumn. It will offer Hyperbaric, Hydrostatic, Gas, Submerged Gas, Environmental, Full Qualification, Type Approval and Factory Acceptance Testing. Utilising fully automated pressure and temperature control systems; all tests will be carried out under the watchful eye of the expert team and under strict safety regu- lations.

Other new additions include the creation of an internal controls division;  developed to provide the specification and design of automated systems and process control equipment. This will open-up the teamís expertise to a wide range of additional markets including  pharmaceutical, food and allied industries.

A New Identity

It became clear  that the companyís visual identity should also evolve, to reflect  the many exciting changes happen- ing within the company. The new clean, modern, eye-catching branding, will help to easily identify the company throughout the UK, global subsea and other key markets.

The new branding  and both KW Designed Solutions and KW Pressure Testingís new websites will launch at the be- ginning of September to coincide with the company exhibiting at this yearís SPE Offshore Europe, on Stand 3G70 - the NOF Pavilion, from the 3rd-6th September, in Aberdeen.

The changes implemented have  proven successful thus  far, with the company recently celebrating a record finan- cial year, increasing the turnover fivefold in FY2018/19 and winning many new global contracts. The highly-skilled team are busy designing and manufacturing equipment  to their customerís unique project and application require- ment.

Future Innovation

Instability in the oil and gas market spurred the company to review its structure, processes and to explore new ven- tures; seeing expansion into both new and existing markets in North and South America, Canada, Norway, collabo- ration with a partner company in France, the appointment of key personnel, a move to a new 8.000 sq. ft. premises and ambitious plans to aid future growth.

KW Designed Solutions, has been designing, manufacturing and installing innovative special purpose pressure testing vessels, pressure testing equipment  and associated pressure control systems, to the oil and gas, subsea, material science, universities and nuclear markets since  2004.

The highly specialist bespoke products enable companies to develop, approval test and production test their equipment and materials, by accurately simulating extreme subsea / deep water  conditions. This proves suitability for use  in high  pressure environments and high/ low temperature operation; ensuring durability, corrosion resis- tance, product lifespan and compliance to industry standards.

Mark Henderson, Commercial Director, said: "We have spent a great deal of time ensuring that our new branding reflects the changing structure of the company, the expertise, innovation and professionalism of our team and helps to further strengthen our name in the market. We hope it will help to aid our ambitious objective for the future; to be seen as the global leaders in high pressure engineered solutions.Ē
