BiSN has confirmed plans to invest £2million in a new North Sea hub.
Based in Warrington, the £2million premises will see BiSN expand into a 2,000 sq/m, site, which brings its research and development activity under the same roof as a newly-acquired machine shop.
Chief executive officer, Paul Carragher explains: “The international demand for BiSN’s unique downhole technology has increased exponentially. The purpose of our most recent UK investment is two-fold; firstly, it allows us to continue our ground-breaking alloy development, whilst dramatically improving product availability to those operating across the Eastern Hemisphere.
“Secondly, our technology – which utilises a bismuth-based alloy and modified thermite heaters – is turning traditional downhole sealing methodology on its head; we are opening up a range of applications previously thought impossible. With that in mind, our improved headquarters provide the ideal setting in which our clients can witness the technology for themselves.
“This has already proved highly effective at our Houston assembly facility, and we look forward to welcoming our clients to Warrington.”
The firm is also looking to recruit 10 new people as part of its growth plans.
