Eztek, an electronic design and manufacturing company based in Blackburn, near Aberdeen, has landed contracts from energy service firms worth £250,000.
One of the contracts calls for Eztek to supply £180,000 of cable assemblies to a well-management company in Aberdeen.
The second, worth £70,000, is for the supply of 16 industrial computers for workshop use at an oil service company’s premises in Portlethen. Both projects are now under way at Eztek’s workshops.
The electronics firm, established in 1993 as a one-man business by managing director Bert van Tuijl, has now grown to employ 16 full-time staff and three part-time at offices and workshops at Blackburn Industrial Estate. Sales and marketing manager Robin Hunter said Eztek’s turnover last year was £1.2 million and it is targeting sales of £2.2 million by 2012, which will mean a further increase in personnel.
Eztek specialises in the design and manufacture of instrumentation, wireline and communication products principally for the oil and gas industry. It also supplies hazardous-area equipment in robust, flameproof enclosures.
The firm works with most of the major oil service companies, supplying equipment worldwide.
It also has a fabrication department that can undertake any steel and stainless steel work. Typical products include stainless steel frames and enclosures, pressure-test bay doors, flanges, filters, tanks and gates.
