AFS and KAT Announce New Partnership - 16th January 2018

London-based Assured Flow Solutions (AFS) today announced a unique new partnership with Kernow Analytical Technology (KAT), allowing both companies to expand their integrated laboratory testing and flow assurance engineering services to clients throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The move is a natural next step for AFS, who has experienced exceptional growth since its London-based engineering office opened in May 2017.

“We’re thrilled to partner with KAT to bring the full capabilities and expertise of AFS to Europe and beyond,” said Tony Spratt, Managing Partner of AFS. “We have long believed that providing integrated flow assurance, production chemistry, and laboratory testing under one roof leads to better insight, and we’re pleased to work with one of the most respected names in the industry to offer that value to more clients around the world.”

Through the partnership, KAT will receive flow assurance engineering support in service of their clients, and AFS will supplement its own world-class laboratory testing services with equipment and capabilities from KAT. Together, they will be equipped to provide not only insights, but outcomes, helping clients worldwide achieve greater efficiency, sustainability, safety, and profitability.

KAT Managing Director, Dr. Neil Chilcott, said: “This formal partnership is an exciting evolution of the working relationship we’ve built over the past 15 years. We share similar approaches, philosophies, and aspirations, and we’re excited not only to provide data for our clients, but to make a real difference in the productivity and performance of their projects.”

In addition to allowing both companies to offer a full suite of engineering and laboratory testing services, AFS and KAT will jointly pursue R&D and new technology, training and staff development, and new business opportunities around the globe.
