KLINGER UK retains partnership with major UK oil refinery
British metallic gasket and jointing specialist continues to provide wide range of on-site services for Stanlow refinery
The Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Cheshire is owned and operated by a major global oil operator. As a key player in the national economy, this company is responsible for around 16 percent of the United Kingdom’s transport fuels. KLINGER UK has already been servicing the plant for more than 20 years. The British metallic gasket and jointing specialist is proud to report that it has now retained its contract and will continue to provide a wide range of on-site services.

The supply contract, recently won by KLINGER UK, might be seen by some as “business as usual”. Not so at the manufacturer and supplier of metallic gaskets, jointing materials, insulation sets, compression packings and associated products: “KLINGER UK is one of the few companies in the industry to employ first-rate quality and service combined with value adding products and services. We are certified in accordance with both ISO 9001:2015 and BS EN 9100:2016,” states Mathew Craggs, Technical Lead at KLINGER UK, adding: “Our firm commitment to quality and innovation is not restricted to our processes, however. It is also the driving force in doing business with and providing best service for our customers. Our in-depth knowledge of customer facilities and operations plays a major role in this context: “We will not only be providing daily sealing solution requirements, shutdown-support, design calculations as well as other on-site and flange management services at the Stanlow plant,” he confirms, “we will also be in charge of trainings relating to our products as well as to best practice gasket installation.” With regard to the new contract, Mr. Craggs explains that the refinery will benefit from an increased focus on reliability as well as on technical support.
