Aberdeen-based energy service company Pressure Test Solutions (PTS) has invested £250,000 in a new hydraulics division and added a key distributor agreement.
The investment will focus on a brand new hydraulics and pneumatic products division designed to support the company’s existing services.
Based in Bridge of Don, PTS specialises in rental, sales and calibration of equipment for the energy sector.
PTS managing director Gary Notman said: “It has taken 12 months to plan this significant investment in the company and we are delighted that our new hydraulics and pneumatics division is up and running.
“As well as offering a new product line which complements our existing services, the investment will help us to service offshore markets around the world.”
The company has hired three staff members to support the new division.
Ian Reid, an industry veteran with 25 years’ experience, has been brought in to head up the division.
PTS has also secured key distributor deals signed with MCS Hydraulics UK, giving it access to the full range of products from both MCS and the FB Group headquartered in Italy.
Mr Notman added: “It is important that we continue to grow, and our new distributor agreement with MCS Hydraulics, one of the premium brands in the industry, will put us in front of a large market which will be a huge benefit to the business.
“We hold a large amount of stock in Aberdeen, including the ability to make up hose assembly products and supply fittings. Because of this we’re in a unique position to service companies based in the north-east, and beyond, as no-one else in the local market has the breadth of products we can supply.”
