Have your say

Sheffield Forgemasters is set to join 20 British manufacturing companies on a trade mission to Norway later this week.

The UK engineering firm will showcase its offshore technology and project management specialist subsidiary, Vulcan SFM, to key players in the oil and gas sector at the ONS exhibition and conference in Stavanger organised by Norway2UK.

About 70,000 people are expected to attend the three- day event, celebrating its 40th year, with 1,250 global exhibitors showing their capabilities in the Stavanger Forum exhibition centre.

John Duffy, sales manager at Vulcan SFM, who is attending with sales director Nick Hartle, said: “ONS is a unique meeting place for everyone involved in the global offshore oil and gas sector. It is of interest to any company involved in the offshore oil and gas supply chain, from leading service companies to small, specialised companies, from development to decommissioning.

“Vulcan has played an increasing role as a key exporter of components to Norway, especially over the last three years. It is well positioned to further capitalise on the lucrative Norwegian oil and gas market.

“We currently have three forgings projects with Norwegian clients.

“To have the opportunity to network with European companies is also invaluable.”
