On July 18th/19th, ALH Systems proudly attended a 'stand down' event, hosted by Northern Gas Networks, where we demonstrated the Exchange ECV kit and the Bond and Bolt system, both of which bring tangible savings through reduced excavation requirements to Gas Networks.
Field Engineers, Stephen Cawthorn and James Elliot were present at the event representing the business and were busy answering questions and demonstrating the benefits of both techniques.
Pipe Equipment Specialists Ltd (PESL), based in Teesside was recently acquired by the Indutrade AB. They will now become part of the ALH Systems group of companies – ALH Systems Ltd were also acquired by Indutrade in 2014.
PESL designs, manufactures, supplies and hires an extensive range of innovative and high quality equipment and accessories for the International pipe and cable laying industries, particularly in the trenchless technology sector. Steve Kent and his team celebrated 20 years of PESL last year, bringing vast knowledge and experience to ALH Systems Group, of which itself celebrates 40 years this year.
Andrew Cousins Managing Director of ALH Systems Group says, “Acquiring Pipe Equipment Specialist Ltd will significantly support our success and the growth of the group, whilst giving us a significant presence in the North of the UK. The depth of knowledge of the gas industry and experience within the group will help us to consolidate our expansion.”
The ALH Group can now offer Resins, flow stopping and repair of pipe systems, development of innovative designs of products and systems, with the addition of the PESL portfolio.
To assist with the integration of PESL into the ALH Group, Peter Scott one of the ALH Systems Business Development Managers, joined the board of Directors at PESL in March. Peter is no stranger to PESL or Managing Director Steve Kent, working within the industry with Steve for many years and more recently on the Northern Pipeline Industries Guild and NE&Y IGEM committees.
