AxFlow has been involved in supplying industrial heat exchangers for several years, but the decision to take on the distribution of the APV Gasketed Plate range, Brazed Heated range and the APV Hybrid fully-welded, gasket-free product marks a new departure for the company. Heading up the new operation is Geoff Mahoney, who has joined AxFlow from APV.
Frontier International, specialists in international oil and gas resourcing, has ended the first half of 2014 with an annualised turnover of £21.5million – a 70% increase in comparison with 2013 figures.

As well as holding a substantial number of global contacts with the major operators, Frontier works closely with the oil and gas service sector and is working with a steadily increasing number of service companies, on both a local and international basis. International client demand has also led the company to successfully expand in several key regions, with wholly owned subsidiaries being established in India, Tanzania and Trinidad and Tobago.
