WH Partnership on Track for a £20m Turnover

weblogoEngineering firm, WH Partnership, is on track to top a £20m turnover this year after landing a multi-million pound contract with a global leader in the pharmaceutical sector.

The Gateshead firm, which operates in the pharmaceutical and personal care industries, is designing and building manufacturing facilities for BASF Pharma on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland.

The £20m contract has created several new jobs at WHP’s specialist workshop, where most of the equipment is now being made and tested in a clean, controlled environment before being installed on site.

pic-006The company has grown rapidly since it was established in The Watermark in 2006, and now employs more than 100 specialist and project staff across the UK, with agents in Asia and the Middle East.

In 2009, it moved to a larger unit on the estate and has just opened a dedicated technical centre nearby, serving customers including Avon and Procter & Gamble. It recently completed the refurbishment of the Angel Biotechnology Holdings plant in Cramlington.

Nigel Hall, managing director, said: “Our order book is very busy at the minute and we’ve grown our turnover from £1m in our first year of operation to £20m in just six years.

“We’re starting to work more and more in the overseas market, and that is a massive growth area for us. We’d like to expand geographically, in places like Europe, Egypt, Asia and Brazil. We’ve been working on a scouring facility in Egypt, where we’ve recently set up an agency.

“We’d also like to break into the renewable energy market, because although it is growing and developing all the time, the industry is using old modified technology which needs revolutionising. We’re in the process of talking to a couple of companies with the view of advancing that business opportunity.”

BASF Pharma, formerly Equateq, is a world leader in the manufacture of omega-3 fatty acids, used in health and nutrition supplements.

Hall says the contract is a major milestone for his company.
