FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 16th September 2021

South America Pump Industry

Amarinth, a world-leading, net-zero designer and manufacturer of low lifecycle cost centrifugal pumps and associated equipment, primarily for the offshore and onshore oil & gas industries; nuclear and renewable energy generation; defence; desalination; process and industrial markets, has completed a significant investment in equipment and created new jobs with help from a Growing Business Fund grant.

Amarinth has established itself as leader in providing centrifugal pumps to the world’s most challenging and arduous projects. With an increasing order book, Amarinth had set out a strategic growth plan requiring new equipment and recruitment of more staff at its head office in Rendlesham, Suffolk. Working with New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, the company secured a grant to help accelerate this growth and add more permanent skilled staff to the team.

The Growing Business Fund grant was awarded for 20% of the total investment made. Amarinth targeted three key areas:

1. A new testing tank to increase capacity and enhance its existing facility and ensure it could continue to meet delivery times with the increase in customer orders.

2. Upgraded IT servers and the latest SolidWorks computer aided modelling software enabling the company to maintain its position of delivering bespoke centrifugal pumps on the shortest lead times in the industry.

3. More permanent full-time staff to deliver on the increasing number of bespoke pump orders and continue to support the expanding customer base around the world.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic over the previous 18 months, Amarinth has successfully procured and commissioned the new testing facilities, IT equipment and software and has recruited and brought on-board two new full-time staff, a Design Engineer and a Global Sales Manager to support the company’s controlled growth strategy, and expects to fill a further two staff positions imminently.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are a successful and fast-growing business with an increasing order book. To keep up with the demanding projects of our customers in a rapidly changing world we are always seeking new ways to be more agile and competitive. We have been based in Suffolk since the company was founded almost two decades ago and this grant has helped us to develop the company in meeting our goals whilst delivering opportunities within the region for employment in the company and more business for our supply chain.”
