“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way to 2016”

As business in 2015 fast approaches an end, many of you will be winding down! But not Krantech, it is business as usual. Dave Meadows Christmas wish came true with Santa on his way, with a few extra reindeers, direct from the Czech Republic carrying a hefty 32 tonne CNC horizontal boring TOS WHQ on his sleigh. It is safe to say, the reason Dave is smiling so much is because he is receiving the biggest Christmas present of the year. The new machine will sit proud in the new state of the art facility at Colliery Close, Staveley site. Capable of some pretty impressive work 4000mm X Axis, 2500 mm Y Axis, 1250 mm Z Axis, 800 mm W Axis, 360 degree rotary table 0.01 degree increments’ and the new machine foundations are ready for its arrival in January 2016.

Dave Meadows said “I cannot wait to get the new facility up and running and move our existing machining workshop over to Colliery Close. We will see a new market open up to us machining in stainless steel, super duplex and other exotic materials, which I’m very familiar with”.

The state of the art facility at Colliery Close is nearing its completion and has been designed for a later phase 2 and phase 3 development, if required, to accommodate new business growth into sectors such as Nuclear, MoD and Aerospace whilst continuing to compliment the current Oil and Gas clientele.

The New Year will see Jo Bekis relocate to Dubai to look at new business start-up opportunities. Jo has successfully guided Krantech through the Fit4Nuclear process. Putting down the foundations for the nuclear sector and engaging with a couple of future clients. Jo’s replacement, Rob Williams will join Krantech in the New Year and will work closely with Dave Meadows to engage with additional new clients to ensure the success of the new facility.

Mel Myronko said “This year has seen many changes to Krantech, it’s been both challenging moving the business into its next life cycle and fraught with many logistical issues such as work flow, cash flow, new build and new sector break through. We have implemented many new processes and accreditations to suit our new market place clients, but as ever the team are always up for the challenge and we have been determined to succeed where other companies may fail. I’d like to say a huge thanks to all the supporting organisations and individuals that have helped us achieve this and wish all my teams, suppliers and clients a prosperous new year”

"A Dedicated Team"

OneSubsea have worked with Krantech Holdings from the beginning. During this time they have undertaken a variety of work on time and to budget. One of our recent projects the refurbishment of two PGB’s undertaken was excellent. The Krantech workshop co-ordination and work put behind achieving the successful completion of the PGB’s I don’t think it would have gone so well without the commitment and dedication shown by the Krantech Team. Achieving getting them complete to the required standard by OneSubsea goes to show our working relationship is second to none
