An offshore company has set up a cylinder pressure testing centre in Great Yarmouth to expand the scope of its services.

The staff at EPIC International Limited have more than 10 years’ experience of servicing and testing of cylinders for the diving industry.

Managing director Dave Rowan has converted part of the company’s Vanguard Road building into a three-room test centre for cylinders used in the diving industry and general offshore industry.

Mr Rowan said the company is also planning to test other compressed gas cylinders with the £15,000 worth of equipment it has installed.

Since receiving certification, the company is already in negotiation with a major national company to provide testing and certification.

Mr Rowan said: “Creating this centre is another way to expand our services to existing clients and also find new opportunities.”
