Beck Prosper is a world-class manufacturer and distributor of fully certified high-integrity bolting to the oil, gas, petrochemical and power generation industries. Beck Prosper is capable of meeting the exacting standards of quality and service demanded by a diverse customer base.

With strategically located manufacturing and stocking facilities throughout the UK and in China, Beck Prosper has the experience and global reach to ensure both day-to-day requirements and projects are handled professionally and delivered to client’s high expectations, wherever they may be. In addition to our own facilities, Beck Prosper is supported by a worldwide network of strategic alliances and local agencies to further meet customer requirements.

Beck Prosper operates from three separate sites within the UK – Kingswinford, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock. At Beck Prosper we pride ourselves on our customer service, product knowledge, flexibility, competitiveness and manufacturing excellence.

Offshore high-integrity bolting

Recent concerns about the quality of fasteners being used in the offshore sector has increased Beck Prosper’s activity with operators such as Statoil to jointly establish product specification for subsea use. With 40 years’ experience, Beck Prosper is seen by the industry as a key player in ensuring compliance in the subsea supply chain, both from an advisory and manufacturing capability as demonstrated by the key global frame agreements which we hold.

Downstream / petrochemical / refining and OEM studbolts and fasteners

Beck Prosper holds directly, or through approved distributors, many of the UK’s refinery studbolt and fastener contracts covering daily maintenance, repair and operational requirements. In many cases this takes the form of ‘consigned stock’ located within the client’s own premises. For major shutdown and maintenance periods, both Kingswinford and Aberdeen are well-equipped to cover any requirement, including ‘hot shots’.

Power generation fastener components

For coal, oil, hydro or nuclear power stations, Beck Prosper manufactures and supplies a full range of fastener components, including fully threaded studs, engineer, waisted and hot studs, socket cap screws, cap nuts, V notch nuts, hexagon nuts and washers (either from customer drawings or by ‘reverse’” engineering).

Beck Prosper has a dedicated project team with a proven track record of supplying bolting to global projects. Experienced in all aspects of project execution, from a thorough understanding of commercial bid preparation through to providing documentation in project-specific formats, our team ensures that your project requirements are adhered to.
