EPIC International Launches Diving Cylinder Testing Centre

EPIC International has set up a cylinder pressure testing centre for diving industry in Great Yarmouth.

The company has converted a part of its Vanguard Road building into a three-room test centre for cylinders used in the diving industry and general offshore industry.

The company is already in negotiation with an unnamed national company to provide testing and certification.

EPIC managing director Dave Rowan said: “Creating this centre is another way to expand our services to existing clients and also find opportunities with new.”

The new centre has all the equipment needed to service and test a wide range of cylinders and is aimed to service both industrial and leisure industries, the company noted.

The new centre features equipment for hydrostatic-testing, valve servicing, shot blasting, cleaning and repainting.

“As well as the offshore cylinder business, we will be looking to build up the business outside the offshore industry with breathing apparatus and, hopefully, take on an apprentice,“ Rowan added.
