PCT has recently moved its headquarters to new premises located on the north bank of the river Tyne in Wallsend, North East of England. The new site, which provides more than double the floor space currently occupied, will accommodate the continued expansion of staff numbers and will vastly increase the supply capability of the business. The expansion has been driven by an upturn in demand over the past year for plastic pipe coiling & packaging equipment from our established markets and by the expansion of equipment sales into other sectors such as wire rope, sub-sea umbilical and power cable manufacture and well intervention.
The new riverside location has direct access to deep water quay facilities enabling quayside mobilisation and vessel load out for larger equipment. Complementing the design, project management and customer support services offered by PCT are manufacturing facilities, including fabrication, shot-blast & painting which are operated on the same site by our strategic partner W D Close & Sons. The combined capabilities enable us to design, manufacture and assemble large equipment, such as carousels of up to 7000t capacity, with all activities taking place on one site.
This expansion of UK based activities comes less than 18 months after establishing subsidiary operations in the USA, PCT Inc, and in China, PCT China Ltd, through which the group has expanded global sales and manufacturing capabilities.
PCT Ltd is a privately owned company based in Newcastle UK with subsidiaries in the USA and China. The company designs and supplies coiling, handling and packaging solutions for flexible products such as plastic pipe, sub-sea umbilical, power cables, flow-lines and steel wire rope.
