mb Inspection opens new premises
October 5, 2023
Bridge has opened a new headquarters for its inspection unit in
Falkirk – in yet another sign that the worst is past for the historic engineering company.
MB Inspection, which employs about 450 people throughout the UK, has consolidated its two sites in Aberdeen and Edinburgh into a purpose-built 28,000sq ft facility at West Main Industrial Estate in Falkirk.
Along with a new base at Dyce near Aberdeen, total investment in the two new facilities comes to more than £500,000. According to chairman Hugh Hayes, the investment is simply the latest sign that Motherwell Bridge is well on the road to recovery. “This move is a clear sign of intent for both our customers and our staff,” he said.
MB Inspection specialises in “risk-based inspection” for the oil and gas industry – essentially using applied intelligence to predict when maintenance is required to metal pipes and structures. It already has a strong relationship with BP at Grangemouth, but Hayes said he was keen for the company to become the “de facto choice” for oil and gas companies.
Peter Hughes, chief executive of Scottish Engineering, said he was delighted to see a company “which epitomises the history of engineering and innovation in Scotland, still setting pace in new technology”.
