About us

From the start we had aspirations to be different. Putting our customers at the heart of everything we do, we are an established global leader in the engineering, manufacture and application of insulation and passive fire protection systems, buoyancy and SURF products (subsea, umbilicals, risers and flowlines) to the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry. We have achieved exceptional growth both in the United Kingdom (UK) and overseas through growing demand, increasing turnover from £3m in 2008 to £33m in 2018. With a number of facilities in the UK and further facilities located in Angola, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Korea, United Arab Emirates and the United States, we are well positioned to offer you support wherever you are located in the world.


We have been providing innovative solutions to a range of global markets since our formation in 2007 when we acquired Alderley Materials. Established in 1993, Alderley Materials developed the application processes and procedures of it’s own passive fire protection and subsea insulation products.
