EEEGR member Gee-Force Hydraulics, specialist supplier of controlled bolting and flange working equipment, has moved to new, larger premises at the prestigious Beacon Business Park in Great Yarmouth, UK.
“The Beach Got Bigger” was the company’s strapline whilst exhibiting at EEEGR’s SNS2016 event in March when the company made the announcement about a new rental and training partnership with HTL. The “beach” is of course local vernacular for “onshore” and a previous strapline “the beach got closer” signified the company’s presence in Great Yarmouth, right at the heart of the southern north sea oil & gas operations. The new HTL partnership offers access to an unparalleled hire fleet of controlled bolting and flange working equipment, flushing, test and instrumentation equipment, portable machines as well as cutting and subsea equipment.
The partnership also brings ECITB approved training and testing from the new Beacon Park premises. HTL’s team of industry experienced technical trainers ensures that Gee-Force and HTL can continuously deliver approved courses which meet local customer needs, including the new Wind Turbine Bolted Connections courses, MJI31 and MJI32.
Managing Director Graeme Cook explains, “Gee-Force Hydraulics already supply controlled bolting and flange working equipment to a wide range of industry sectors including oil & gas, power generation and renewable energy, however a partnership with HTL allows us to offer customers a complete portfolio of solutions through a full range of hire equipment. In discussions with HTL we felt that a partnership could bring about an unrivalled level of customer service to the local area, which has already been enthusiastically received by our customers.”
“With the new premises, a much wider range of equipment is readily available on our hire shelves as well as a full training calendar filled with courses in demand from industry; the beach has certainly got bigger!” adds Cook.
