Gee-Force team EXPANDED STOCK OF TORQUE TOOLS


A growing offshore supply company that saw a record growth in turnover in the most difficult year in the oil & gas industry has expanded its range and work scopes.


Gee-Force Hydraulics, best known for its hire and sales of their hydraulic bolting torque wrench in the offshore sector, has expanded its spread of tools including pneumatic and electronic tools, including the Norbar range, to push into new markets.


LARGER PREMISES


Since moving to its bigger Great Yarmouth base earlier this year, it has extended its rental range of essential equipment and locating it on-the-spot in Great Yarmouth. The offshore wind market on its doorstep off the east coast – the UK’s biggest centre for the development of offshore wind – is a target for some of its new tools, including Norbar’s electronic wrench, the Evo-Torque.


“The Evo-Torque2 is connected to Bluetooth and leaves an audit trail, which is appealing to the offshore wind industry,” Gee-Force Hydraulics Managing Director Graeme Cook said.


PNEUMATIC, ELECTRONIC AND ELECTRONIC


Gee-Force’s expanded stock of torque tools is hoped to lead it into more new sectors, Graeme commented: “Not all of the new sectors are not going to be our core hydraulic bolting equipment. Our Norbar range has pneumatic and electronic. Electronic wrenches have become far more sophisticated and sought after and are easier in tight spaces, involving less kit, and would be desirable for offshore wind sector.”


As well as its busy offshore work, it plans to push its services throughout the East of England to the south East and London from its Beacon Park base.


TARGET MARKETS


New target markets for the company include tower cranes in the construction sector, especially into the capital where new building is buoyant, and production lines. It has recently supplied tools for its


first project on the London Underground system, which it hopes will develop into a promising new market, and to a demolition company bringing down a disused power station.
