News: X-Cel excels with supplier status


X-Cel Superturn, a global manufacturer of machined components, has been awarded "Globally Qualified Supplier" status by FMC Technologies.

The rapidly expanding exporter was the first major company to confirm an expansion into the Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone when it announced that it was to expand its Atlas operations to a new facility on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham.

Opened in 2012, the custom-designed 14,000 sq ft facility is home to X-Cel's gasket and seal division and the decision was confirmed when a £6m contract was secured to supply precision gaskets and sealing rings to a global manufacturer of subsea trees, the equipment used to top underwater wellheads and control the flow of oil or gas.

Now the firm has been officially certified by FMC Technologies, an important customer and leading global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry.

With 18,400 employees and 30 production facilities in 16 countries, FMC Technologies designs, manufactures and services technologically sophisticated systems and products such as subsea production and processing systems, surface wellhead systems, high pressure fluid control equipment, measurement solutions, and marine loading systems for the oil and gas industry.

A spokesperson at X-Cel Superturn said: "This further cements our relationship and we look forward to working into the future with them and continue to supply them with a high quality service that supports their innovative and sophisticated systems and technologies."

Earlier this year, X-Cel was awarded certified supplier status with another of their major customers, NOV Downhole Eurasia Ltd, a specialist in mechanical components for land and offshore drilling rigs.

The certifications are expected to boost X-Cel's oderbook even further. The firm recently reported that the current order intake for the financial year was in excess of £20m, beating the previous year by £2.8m already.
