JWF tie-up prompts expansion overseas

Craig McLarenOil and gas engineering firm JWF is expanding overseas after striking a joint venture with an English technology company.

JWF has announced a tie-up with Swinton Technology that will see it provide hardware, including meters and other instrumentation alongside Swinton Technology software.

Swinton’s software, which provides real-time malfunction alerts, is used by major oil and gas operators around the world in both onshore and offshore operations.

Craig McLaren (pictured), general manager at JWF Metering, 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 cultural change.”

JWF, which was founded in 1962 and has 24 staff, supplies the process industry with a range of technologies that are used to measure variables including flow, pressure, temperature and level.

In November last year the firm announced that it had broken the £10 million turnover milestone for the first time after winning a number of major North Sea contracts.

The company is now looking to win new business in established and emerging overseas markets.

Swinton Technology, based in Malton, North Yorkshire, specialises in supplying flow computer metering systems and also has offices in Dubai and Malaysia.
