Brompton-on-Swale-based iNPIPE PRODUCTS is celebrating a business milestone as the company marks its 40th year of trading.

Formed in 1984, the company employs 68 members of staff – including eight apprentices – from its Brompton and Aberdeen sites and works with many of the world’s largest brands across Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America and Asia.

Last year, the business welcomed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on one of its most successful years to date and which saw the company invest in a new service centre in Aberdeen and grow its global customer base.

The visit also provided the chance to tour the six-acre site, now one of the largest single employers in the Richmond constituency.

Speaking about the anniversary, managing director Simon Bell, said: “The business is obviously very proud to have achieved such a remarkable milestone and it is the commitment and expertise of our team members and our global customers who have very much contributed to this success.

“Throughout our 40 years in business, iNPIPE PRODUCTS has carved a reputation for ingenuity, professionalism, and expertise with our teams delivering leading pigging products across the globe.

“It is the huge experience and innovation of this team – many of whom have been with us for more than 25 years- who have played an enormous and integral part in making iNPIPE the successful business that it is today.”

The company is a world leader in the design, manufacture, supply and hire of pipeline pigging, maintenance and testing products across the oil and gas, petrochem, powergen, mining, nuclear, water and food processing industries.

The business exports 70% of its turnover worldwide and, as a result of growth, prides itself on increased opportunities for apprentices with almost 12% of the workforce now being made up by its apprenticeship programme.
