Research and Development

Our design department is located at the Barnsley base.

The department is staffed by 4 designers who employ the latest CAD and Finite stress analysis techniques in support of our manufacturing and repair services. In addition we maintain strong academic, technical and commercial links with Sheffield Hallam University’s Engineering Department and The Welding Institute. This provides us with additional research capacity, enhanced computer modelling and access to innovation.

Recent project work has led to significant improvements in Tank shell integrity and aerodynamics, enabling us to improve our products by reducing fuel consumption and increasing the resilience of the Tank in a rollover situation. The retention of our technical design service ensures we can react quickly to any unusual requests from our customers.

We maintain individual and Whole Type approval for our output, meeting all requisite standards such as EN 13094, ADR and British Engineering Services Design approval.
