Advanced Industrial Solutions blazes path to Canada

Posted on 22 Apr 2016 by Jonny Williamson

Leading manufacturer of passive fire protection and insulation products, Advanced Industrial Solutions is expanding its global reach after signing a distribution deal in Canada.

The agreement will see Advanced Industrial Solutions (AIS) multi-award winning products supplied to the Canadian market via the Crosbie Group – recently named one of Canada’s best managed companies.

The Crosbie Group is a key supplier to the Canadian oil and gas sector, providing technical maintenance support such as specialised pipe cleaning and repair, as well as installing protective coatings and passive fire protection systems.

Celebrating export success

The UK Export Excellence Awards 2016 ceremony and gala dinner is being held on June 15 in Liverpool.

It will be an evening of celebration, recognising the achievements of the UK’s exporters over the past year.

If you’re one of the lucky companies to be shortlisted; if you’re keen to meet and share experiences with the UK’s leading exporting and manufacturing companies; or if you’re keen to catch up with old friends and acquaintances from across the market, you are invited to secure a table at this prestigious black-tie ceremony before capacity is reached.

Canada is the fifth largest oil producing country globally and offers a huge potential market for AIS’ range of passive fire protection and insulation systems – safety-critical products widely used in the oil and gas sector.

Managing director, Paul Stonebanks commented: “The link is already resulting in several new orders coming through, including one to supply insulation and metal products to an offshore oil platform in Newfoundland.

“We are also training the staff at Crosbie Group in survey and installation skills to ensure we can fully capitalise on the major interest being shown out there. However, our manufacturing will remain in the UK.”

AIS designs, manufactures and installs award-winning passive fire protection systems which provide up to 180 minutes of fire protection against the deadly spread of a hydrocarbon or jet fire.

As well as fire protection products, the company offers a comprehensive range of technical insulation products to combat issues such as noise, corrosion, weather and temperature extremes in order to protect assets, create safer work spaces and reduce operational costs.
