Manufacturers Fraser Hydraulic Power (FHP) have hailed a game changing move into new premises earlier this year.

Celebrating the move to their purpose-built Neptune Energy Park facility in June, the firm recently invited workers’ families and customers to see the 28,000 sq ft unit first hand.

Peter Fraser, director at the firm, said: “For the last 28 years we have been conducting our engineering services from various premises on the North side of the River Tyne. But, for the last ten years, whilst the service and products have continued to roll out to serve locations across the world, it has often proven difficult to operate from premises that were really not fit for purpose.”

The new facilities are positioned to give FHP access to Neptune’s load out quay, for equipment that is too large for road transportation.

Mr Fraser noted the firm are now surrounded by major oil and gas industries firms, and expressed his hopes for more to locate on the north bank of the Tyne.

He added: “This is an investment for the future, and FHP will be a significant player in the continuation of the revival of the best products being built on the river, it’s good for the North East and the UK with 60% of turnover being exported in 2013/14.”
