TWI’s Middlesbrough Technology and Training Centre has moved into its new home –
the flagship building in the new Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park.
The move was planned and executed in a way that ensured minimal disruption to TWI’s
Members, who can now benefit from the greatly enhanced capabilities available from
the new building.
Constructed in partnership with Middlesbrough Council and the Tees Valley Combined
Authority Local Enterprise Partnership, the purpose-built facility represents a
sizeable boost to engineering consultancy and industry training capability in the
Training services available from the new centre include underwater inspection –
delivered in a large dive tank equipped with modern diving apparatus – a dedicated
plastics joining facility, weld inspection and the full suite of non-destructive
Engineering services are provided from a bespoke engineering hall, designed and
equipped with a particular focus on thick-section welding and electron beam technology
to support the offshore and fabrication industries.
Companies in the region can also benefit from extensive materials characterisation
and modelling services, including advanced surface characterisation, weld modelling,
fitness-for-service assessments and additive manufacturing simulation support.
The Ferrous Road facility also houses an office for TWI Certification Ltd, from
where compliance verification engineers, all of whom are professionally qualified
and experienced welding engineers, deliver assessments of manufacturers and training
providers against European and international standards. Locally, nationally and
internationally, fabricators and colleges can gain certification that assures their
competence and the quality of their products and services.
The new facility is located in the Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park on Ferrous
Road, just a few hundred metres from TWI’s previous Riverside Park address. TWI
is operating the new building with an open access policy for local companies and
TWI Members interested in finding out about available services.
The phone number for TWI in Middlesbrough is unchanged: 01642 216320.
