JWF announces new Partnership with Swinton Technology!
Oil and gas engineering firm JWF is eyeing export growth after creating a joint-venture with an English technology company.
JWF said yesterday its tie-up with Swinton Technology, based in Malton, Yorkshire, would help it win new business in "established and emerging" overseas markets.
The collaboration deal will see Glasgow based JWF supply software alongside its instruments measuring flow, temperature, pressure and other variables.
Swinton's Prognosis diagnostic software provides real time malfunction alerts and meter accuracy assurance.
It is used by major oil and gas operators around the world in both onshore and offshore operations.
Craig McLaren (pictured), General Manager in JWF's Metering division, said: "The oil and gas industry is under a lot of pressure at the moment, with operators looking for creative ways to cut costs.
"Our collaboration with Swinton is an example of how JWF will use innovative ways to make life easier for our customers and facilitate a culture change. For our customers, it means they will have one integrated point of contact - saving them time and money."
JWF, which was founded in 1962 and has 24 employees working from offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Billingham in Teesside, supplies the oil and gas processing industry with technologies used to measure characteristics including flow, pressure, temperature and level. Last November, it announced it had broken £10million annual turnover for the first time after winning a string of major North Sea contracts.
