Britest joins award winning regional cluster body

We are pleased to announce that Britest has become a member of NEPIC, the regional cluster body for the process industries in the North-East of England.

As a member of NEPIC, Britest gains access to a growing network of like-minded businesses that have come together to support the continued development of the process industries in the North East of England. 

NEPIC is an award winning membership organisation working with the chemical-using industries in the North East of England. Privately-owned and led by industry, NEPIC works to support its member companies in becoming successful and sustainable organisations in a collaborative business environment that helps them to grow.
NEPIC covers a broad sweep of chemistry focused industries including petrochemicals, polymers & materials, fine & speciality chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and renewables – and with their members and industry leads, works to build upon the already powerful industrial base located in the North East to make the region one of the most competitive and successful chemical-processing locations in Europe.

In 2014, NEPIC was the first UK cluster to receive the GOLD standard ESCA accreditation for cluster excellence, and in 2016, reported £3.5 billion of Gross Value Added to the region through its activities since inception.

Britest will be in attendance at a number of NEPIC events throughout the year, details of which will be found on our events calendar. We will be presenting on Scale-Up Risk Assessment at the Best Practice in Projects Turnarounds conference at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium on 22nd May, and will also be attending the Meet the Members Day on 19th June at Wynyard Hall, Teeside.

Britest's Interim CEO Mark Talford said, 

“Joining NEPIC supports our strategy of delivering specialist consultancy services to help the process industries turn their tacit process knowledge into process understanding for added business value”.
