Flow control equipment providers, Oxford Flow have reported an 80% headcount growth over the last 18 months.

The company currently operate in the USA, UK, Middle East and APAC regions, and have plans to expand their operation across India, the Americas and EMEA region.

The news comes as many companies across the energy industry report labour shortages, particularly in the US off the back of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Neil Poxon CEO at Oxford Flow said: “Our international expansion is critical to our next stage of growth and our team is going from strength to strength.”

“As the global energy industry makes moves to decarbonise, whether from a production or a distribution perspective, it will demand technologies that will optimise operations from a reliability, cost and environmental perspective – but we also want to ensure that what we offer now will future proof these systems.”

Speaking about strategic growth plans, Colin Findlay, Chief Strategy Officer added, “We’ve invested a lot of time into our existing workforce, implementing leadership and management training, for example, but strategic hires like John Kett, Tim Doole and Rob Green are key to achieving our future growth plans.”

“As a business, we were born from a desire to build innovative products that have the capability to transform the industries that we work in, but we can only do that with the right experience and expertise in the business.”

“We’re entering a more strategic and commercial stage in our journey and building out our engineering and field services senior management will allow us to continue to service our existing client base while we expand in regions including North America and the Middle East while putting down roots in the likes of the South America and APAC.”

Earlier this month, Oxford Flow announced the launch of its latest IM-S valve gas pressure regulator.
