Plant Integrity opens new premises in Houston, USA


Plant Integrity Ltd has announced the opening of a new office in North America.

Plant Integrity’s flagship product, Teletest Focus+, is a technologically advanced non-destructive testing device capable of accurately detecting flaws in pipelines and tubular structures. It is particularly useful for detecting flaws in difficult-to-reach areas and has seen widespread adoption by the oil & gas industry.

In response to local demand, and to make access to its world-leading Teletest Focus+ testing equipment easier for American companies, the company has set up a new base in Houston.

The office, supported by a dedicated agent, provides equipment rental and expert training in long-range ultrasonic inspection. Plant Integrity shares the premises with parent company TWI, whose North American operation was founded in the city in 2010.

The opening of the new office gets 2015 off to an exciting start for Plant Integrity, which in 2014 enjoyed one of the most successful years of its 18-year history. As well as making a record number of sales and delivering a series of fully-booked training programmes, it was also presented with a Frost & Sullivan Product Leadership Award.

The accolade was awarded to Plant Integrity in recognition of the excellence of its Teletest Focus+ equipment, which was identified as being a market leader in the area of guided wave testing. Judges described it as ‘an extremely well-crafted product with advanced features and robust design’ that ‘has clearly set the benchmark in the industry for innovation’.

In the coming months, Plant Integrity will be carrying out activities to raise awareness of its services in the area, including exhibiting at NACE International’s annual conference and expo, Corrosion 2015, the largest corrosion-related event in the world.

Corrosion 2015 is taking place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas from 15 to 19 March 2015. Plant Integrity will be one of more than 400 companies promoting its services at the event, which is expected to attract an international crowd of more than 6000 attendees.
