What have been the biggest successes for OMS?

In 2014, we were delighted to be presented, for the second time, with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation category) for our state-of-the-art SmartFit™ service. A bespoke system for managing pipe preparation and fit-up in readiness for welding prior to pipe laying, SmartFit™ ensures accurate fitment of pipes prior to welding and laying in trenches, thus preventing environmentally damaging leaks. The service reduces costs through faster pipe laying and improves quality by eliminating mismatched pipe ends and, since its introduction, has helped countless clients across the globe to revolutionise their fit-up processes.

As the UK’s most prestigious accolade for business performance, recognising and rewarding truly outstanding achievement by UK companies, receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise was a huge honour for us. Innovation is a corporate priority throughout the business and a cornerstone of our continued growth.
