WSG's service offering includes: Process & Pipeline Services; Joint Integrity & On-site Machining; Coiled Tubing; Slickline Services and Valve Repair & Refurbishment.

Gareth Turner, WSG's UK Managing Director comments "Following the significant investment that we have made into our valve repair facility, the acquisition of Provalve Ltd has enabled us to increase our capability to all types of valves, isolation, control & safety. This together with our existing range of services means that we are able to offer a true "blind to blind" integrated service.

Provalve Ltd will continue to trade as normal but enjoy the additional benefits of merging with WSG UK's Valve Division which will offer enhanced service and technical capabilities and extend services and product knowledge. The combined group will be rebranded as WSG Provalve Ltd and will offer an enviable approach to Valve Repair across all markets having best in class facilities and specific technical service provision.
