TWI has invested £22M into improving its facilities across the UK and upgrading the equipment that is available for use in Industrial Member projects. TWI has reinvested the income into its facilities, improving and expanding the working environment at its sites in Port Talbot, Middlesbrough and Great Abington near Cambridge. This includes an investment in new equipment to allow it to remain on the cutting-edge of technology and provide a world-beating service to its customers working in industries including nuclear, electrification, new energy, construction and infrastructure, advanced manufacturing, aerospace, defence, and more.
The investment into new technology and infrastructure has been made achievable by advances made over the last four years that have seen TWI’s net worth grow from £57M in 2018 to £206M in 2021.
It has expanded its capabilities for structural integrity, characterisation and non-destructive testing of welds and additive manufactured parts as well as the assessment of materials in harsh environments.
It can also deliver manufacturing and in-service inspection using robotic systems capable of offering continuous and highly repeatable inspection at a reduced cost, while its new generation of cobots are able to work safely alongside humans in-situ.
