Continental Remains Committed to Oil and Gas Industry

Continental remains committed to the oil and gas industry despite the large fluctuations in the oil price in recent months. The company has invested more than €7 million in recent years in modernizing existing machinery, expanding capacity and installing new testing equipment in its industrial hose plant in Grimsby, UK. At the same time, the company wants to increase its competitiveness to better strive for operational excellence. That’s why it has decided that the hose assembly as well as fittings and coupling activities in the Ashington plant will cease during 2019, affecting up to 50 employees.

Experienced and dedicated sales and service team

The oil and gas industry is moving ahead with its focus on safety, environmental protection and operating efficiency, especially in offshore applications. In the future, a services-and-solutions approach benefiting those needs will become key. An experienced and dedicated sales and service team based at a new location in the county of Northumberland in the North East of England will serve their high-pressure and hose management clients more effectively.

Services for offshore applications

Continental provides services for offshore applications including tailored solutions for asset management, maintenance, hose assembly inspection, testing services, external inspection, internal borescope inspection, high-pressure testing and recertification. In addition, the company inspects and maintains hose reeling equipment, such as bunker stations and offloading systems. Continental has been active in flexible hose technology for well over 60 years. The Grimsby facility, which will remain untouched, was founded in 1955 in the English coastal town in North East Lincolnshire and supplied the world’s first marine oil transfer hose in 1958. The company manufactures and supplies hoses for the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.
