We were delighted to open our new facility in Humberside, Hull, on Tuesday 26th March, when invited guests were given the opportunity to visit the new workshop and discover Score’s potential.
Situated within the Saltend Chemicals Park, facilities include a fitting shop, machine shop, hydrostatic and gas testing test cells. As the only valve service provider onsite, we will provide services including valve supply, repair, on-site services, testing and recertification to clients within the chemical park and in the surrounding area.
Throughout the opening day, key onsite personnel and external clients visited, and had the opportunity to meet various Score Group plc companies, including Score VAC Limited and Score Training, who support us to provide valve automation and training services, respectively, to our clients.
Team members from our Score (Europe) Limited head office in Peterhead were on hand to discuss our machining and specialist on-site service capabilities, supporting pre-commissioning, commissioning, on-going maintenance and turnaround activities. These include joint integrity management, on-site machining, welding, NDE and bespoke engineering solutions.
The Hull Daily Mail, Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce, representatives from PX Chemical Park and BP were in attendance as the facility was officially opened.
Speeches were given by Ally Marshall, Deputy Managing Director of Score (Europe) Limited, and Conrad Ritchie, Managing Director of Score International Limited.
Conrad Ritchie commented after the speeches, “We have been supporting the market from other locations for a long time, and although it has worked, if you don’t have a local presence you will only get so far.
“What has been refreshing is how helpful everyone has been at Saltend. I think the other businesses really did want us to be here as we have the skills and the experience to take some of their problems away. The setup is a little bit different to what we have elsewhere. This is the first time we have been operational at the centre of a chemicals complex.”
By moving into the area, Score is expanding and strengthening its market position, and responding to increased workflow. Hull is a further addition to Score Europe’s many facilities throughout Scotland, England, Ireland and Italy, working closely with the Score Group of companies.
Supporting all facilities, our headquarters in Peterhead, Scotland, provides an encompassed Total Valve Management service, by also offering testing, engineering support, valve diagnostics, condition monitoring, inventory management, training and many more services to valve users all in-house.
