Chesterfield Special Cylinders (CSC) has begun a major investment programme as it increases its capabilities to provide bespoke high pressure gas storage systems for navies around the world and for the renewable energy sector.
The first stage will be a £1 million-plus investment in a machining centre, shot-blasting facilities and a UT scanner for its Sheffield manufacturing site.
Much of this – and future planned investments – follow the securing of key contracts with various NATO navies globally. Further orders from the hydrogen sector have also stimulated the investment.
CSC managing director Mick Pinder explains: “This is an exciting time for CSC. Our reputation for delivering specialist systems to navies around the world continues to bring in new orders, while the burgeoning hydrogen sector – especially the increase in use of hydrogen buses – means our systems are in demand across Europe.”
