MSL Engineering Continues to Grow into New Markets

MSL Engineering Continues to Grow into New Markets

Operating from its base in Watergrasshill, Cork, Ireland, MSL Engineering Ltd (MSL) has close to four decades of industry experience as a trusted partner engaging in specialist design, fabrication, installation, testing and commissioning of process pipework, utilities and high-purity pipework, as well as installation of process and heavy equipment. MSL also manages multi-discipline sub-contractors as part of many of it projects including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), scaffold, cranes, insulation, painting, structural steel, sprinklers and non-destructive testing (NDT).

Having previously installed the three original Pot Stills along with the Distillation Columns and all other associated equipment and pipework during the Irish Distillers plant capacity expansion project in 2012, MSL was again awarded the contract for all mechanical works involved in the current project in Midleton.

During the intervening period MSL has continued to enjoy strong growth across its traditional markets within Ireland, while its presence in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Sweden has equally expanded.

There is a lot of development going on in Dublin at present and MSL are also being contracted for increasing amounts of work throughout Europe. This has been the biggest change for the company in recent times, but they have also increasingly focused on working with high-purity applications in mechanical engineering in line with the Biopharma industry demand.

High-purity Workshop

They built a high-purity workshop at their premises in Cork and have since won some good contracts in the fabrication and installation of high-purity pipework, which is a part of the business that continues to grow positively. The new workshop was installed in early 2016 and this allowed the company to complete the high purity elements of existing contracts. However MSL has since won a number of larger jobs for high-purity pipework for projects overseas and this enabled the h-p workshop to become fully operational during the final quarter of 2016. This high-purity facility continues to be busy and with current commitments will remain so throughout 2017.

Another aspect of the business that has helped win work in the UK and Europe is a proven track record in successfully completing modular built pre-assembled process units and pre-assembled racks in the workshop in Cork for subsequent shipping and installation. On-site installation of these modules is normally carried out by MSL as part of the overall package, however installation on site by others is also an option.

Successful Year

While 2016 proved to be a highly successful year for MSL, the company is showing no signs of slowing down. By offering a personal service and guaranteeing the highest levels of quality, MSL is set to continue to grow into new markets throughout the coming years. They have now risen to the ‘next level’ in terms of the quantity of work that they can take on and the amount of turnover that they are capable of generating. Turnover increased substantially throughout 2016 and they have expanded their presence across Ireland and overseas.

As mentioned previously, Dublin has been particularly active and MSL’s aim is to maintain their presence there over the coming months and years. They have invested in the additional resources to handle increased levels of work and their aim will be to keep those resources working and active. They really are able to offer a first-class service based on very varied projects and a lot of experience.

Although undertaking sizable jobs, the company is still managed by the owners of the business, which is something that some clients find reassuring. If issues arise requiring urgent attention it is possible to pick up the phone to speak to the owners of the business to get the matter resolved quickly. When markets are busy clients like to know when they award work that their particular contract is among the top on the contractor’s priority list, which is more likely to be the case when the business is managed by its owners with a personal commitment to successful delivery.
