Tees-headquartered Axiom Engineering Associates have stepped up their localisation strategy to establish a regional presence in key UK hubs for the chemical and process sector.
Hot on the heels of launching a new base in Scotland, Axiom has opened an office in the North-West, on one of the UK’s leading independently-owned business and technical parks.
Axiom bosses believe The Heath Business and Technical Park is the ideal platform for the firm to develop and deploy its integrity management strategies to support its clients in the North-West.
Boasting a central location in Runcorn, Cheshire, with excellent accessibility to road, air and rail networks, the park features state-ofthe-art facilities along with a variety of amenities supporting the needs of an innovative business community.
Axiom’s new open plan office will support the next phase of the firm’s growth in the North-West, which includes the creation of a dynamic and experienced workforce to enhance Axiom’s existing capabilities.
Kevin Murray, Axiom’s regional manager for North-West England and Scotland, said: “Following the comments made at the end of 2019, we have been able to move quickly to secure a new office in the North-West.
“This will enable us to deliver an efficient and responsive service, much sought after by clients who require our support in safely operating and extending the life of their ageing assets.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the business. Our clients in the North-West are keen to embrace the Axiom ethos and track record of excellence. It is our people who make the difference. With plans to recruit further expertise and knowledge, this will support the growth of our integrity management services in the area.”
Axiom chiefs expect the award-winning company – which specialises in the provision of UKAS-accredited inspection services, backed up by a mechanical and materials asset integrity section – to grow strongly this year.
This move is in response to client demand and part of the overall strategy of the business. With the continued building of long term partnerships and strategic alliances, the firm’s leadership team believes Axiom’s growth is testament to its capability to deliver effective lifecycle integrity management systems to its clients.
Established in 2003, Axiom has built an international reputation for its expertise in inspection, mechanical and materials engineering.
With headquarters in Stockton, the company is split into three divisions – inspection, materials analysis and mechanical engineering. It offers inspection and testing, asset and risk management, corrosion testing, failure analysis and mechanical fitness for purpose assessments.
Although Axiom built its reputation in the chemicals, petrochemical and bulk storage sectors, the company now applies its specialist knowledge across a broad spectrum of industries including the green energy sector.
