Amarinth, a specialist in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment, said it had seen demand for its API 610 registered products from clients in the petrochemical sector surge and is now on course to hit record turnover this year.
Based in the seaside town of Woodbridge, the company also supplies general industry and the chemical markets and exports 90% of its annual sales to blue chips customers including BP, Petrofac and Shell.
The firm’s Alex Brigginshaw acknowledged the help Amarinth had received from the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS).
“We were keen to ensure that the leadership capabilities of the business matched our own ambitions, which is why we opted for the leadership training. The expansion of the business has meant our managers now have an extended reporting line and we needed to ensure this was as strong as it could be.”
Amarinth said it had now turned its attention to new export markets, focusing on the North Sea, Asian Pacific and the Middle East where it currently supplies into Iraq and the United Arab Emirates.
