Optical Metrology Services Successfully Completed 26 Separate Pipe Measurement Projects in 2013

Pipe measurement specialist Optical Metrology Services (OMS) has had an extremely successful start to 2013. In the last three months, OMS has successfully completed 26 separate pipe measurement projects for customers, acheiving record sales revenues in this period.

In addition, OMS continues to expand in the UK and USA. Hugh Davies, Director of Client Solutions at OMS comments: “This last Quarter has seen OMS operating at record levels and there doesn’t seem to be any signs of it slowing down. We are busier than ever and are currently working on five pipe measurement projects around the world.”

“Investing in people and equipment is also at an all-time high. We’ve recruited six new staff in the UK since the beginning of 2013 and two additional staff in our Houston office in the USA. In the UK, we will shortly be expanding our existing office and production space to cope with this growth.”

Headquartered in Bishop’s Stortford, OMS has grown company sales revenues by at least 100% per year since 2006 – with around 90% of annual turnover from overseas customers. OMS specialises in providing measurement services and precision measurement systems to the oil and gas industry worldwide. A key focus for the company is in the dimensional measurement of oil and gas pipes or other similar structures where dimensions are critical.

In the last 12 months, OMS has successfully completed pipe measurement, fit-up or internal weld inspection surveys for a number of high profile customers and projects, including Subsea 7 (StatOil and Clare Ridge), Chevron (Gorgon), Saipem (Jack & St Malo; Casterone pipe laying vessel), Serimax (Chess; Shell Gannet), McDermott (Gorgon), Bredero Shaw (Wheatstone), Hyundai Heavy Industries (Barzan), Oceaneering (Llano) and Socotherm (West Boreas).

Davies continues: “In order for the UK economy to climb out of recession, UK businesses need to be extraordinarily good at growth. The ones who will make a difference are not those that grow at 5% per year, but those that grow at rates nearer 100% per year. OMS is a shining example of a successful, UK-based, high growth SME that is exporting its services to every corner of the globe. For these reasons, we are also attracting high calibre people to come and work with us, who are keen to learn and to be trained and to take on further responsibilities.”
