Precision Machined Components
The businesses within this division are leaders in their markets. With world-class lead times, highly specialised precision engineering skills and a blue chip customer base.
The exploration and production of oil and gas demands equipment that can withstand extreme and hostile environments, produced to exacting standards in order to reliably perform in safety critical situations. We provide key components for a variety of deep-water and subsea oil exploration and production equipment as well as wear parts for oil production.
In order to meet customer needs, strong partnerships have been formed to develop technical solutions tailored specifically for their end product applications. Increasingly our customers require technological solutions that enable them to compete in a lower oil price environment and we have been able to expand our market share by working closely with customers on efficiency improvements and technical development.
This division consists of Al-Met, Roota Engineering, Quadscot Precision Engineers and Martract Limited and primarily serves the global oil and gas industry.
Al-Met is a niche manufacturer of specialised, precision engineered valve wear parts used in the oil and gas industries, it was acquired by Pressure Technologies plc in 2010. Its products are used in high-pressure choke and flow control valves, designed to regulate flow volumes in extremely demanding applications in the subsea and surface oil and gas industries. The business, established in 1985, has developed a market leading capability in precision machining carbides, high grade stainless steels and super alloys.

Martract Limited was acquired in December 2016 and is a highly specialised engineering business. It focuses primarily in the grinding and lapping of ball and seat assemblies and gate valves along with other flat lapped product. Established in 1978, it has significant technical capability and intellectual property. It employs IP that achieves tight tolerances of sphericalness in the case of ball valves and flatness in the case of gate valves; this guarantees the sealing of valves at very high pressures. In addition, the implementation of Martract’s IP during repair of existing valves in service has been proven to extend the operational life of products many times over. Martract’s revenue in 2016 was derived 40% from the oil and gas market and 60% from a number of wide-reaching industrial sectors including nuclear.
