Tentec Celebrates 25 Years of Innovation as Sales Continue to Grow
Founded in 1988 by current Managing Director and CEO Mike Gethings and Adrian Pegler respectively, Tentec has grown from a small company providing hydraulic bolts to the coal mining industry to a multi-million pound global organisation that supplies innovative bolt tightening solutions to a wide range of industries including petrochemical, renewable energy, offshore and nuclear.
“The last 25 years have been an exciting and interesting journey.” explains Mike. “When Adrian and I began there were 240 deep coal mines here in the UK, so we were kept very busy in that industry for our first few years. By the early 1990s the mines began to close, we had started exporting our products and realised that we needed to diversify the business, certainly in the UK.”
Due to the success of the company in the early years and increasing exports, by 1992 Tentec was in the position to expand and start the diversification process, although bolt tensioning would remain at the core of its business. Tentec began designing and manufacturing bolt tensioners for the oil and gas industry and from 1992–1999 saw its products used in a number of different industries including petrochem, steel and power generation. In 1994 it entered the subsea market with the introduction of a unique range of multi-stud tensioners (MSTs).
The next milestone in Tentec’s history was 2000 when the company moved into its purpose-built premises in West Bromwich, UK. This enabled further development as stocks could be kept, so guaranteeing fast delivery – an area where many similar companies could not compete. Tentec’s design team also grew meaning as well as standard equipment, Tentec could also provide customised tools, manufactured exactly to customers’ requirements. In 2008 Tentec launched a new range of products for the wind energy market and soon became one of the leading names within the industry.
Tentec continues to innovate and over the last few years the company has added a range of torque wrenches to its product portfolio and new bolt tensioners have been launched for the offshore and subsea markets. The latest innovation has been the new V-Series of Compact Flange bolt tensioners. These new products are being launched at the Offshore Europe exhibition in September and represents another major step forward for the offshore, onshore and subsea installation and maintenance industries.
As Tentec celebrates its 25th year of business, the company now has 40 distributors worldwide and a team of over 60 personnel at its HQ in the UK. With a commitment to HSEQ and product innovation, Tentec has ambitious plans for the coming years. Bucking an industry trend that sees more Chinese goods imported to the UK than exported, with the appointment of a new distributor in China in 2012, Tentec now sees the Chinese market as one of its most important export markets.
“We want to continue providing the best possible bolt tightening products and accessories.” says Mike. “We are committed to providing our customers with high-quality tools and customer satisfaction is our prime objective. We would also like to thank all our customers throughout the world for supporting us and promise that we will continue to provide all industries with the equipment that they need to carry out their operations safely and efficiently.”
