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 Teesside region.

Training and engineering services

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 testing techniques.

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.

Certification 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.

Call or e-mail twinorth@twi-global.com to arrange a visit or find out more about how your business can benefit from the new centre’s enhanced capabilities.
