Epiroc started its’ move from the company’s locations in Stirling to the new 4020 m2 premises in Grangemouth during the summer. The premises now houses Epiroc’s service facilities, international geotechnical drilling team, the UK and Ireland geotechnical sales department, customer services and distribution.
The open day provided Epiroc customers with presentations, demonstrations and one-to-one discussions on a number of geotechnical applications including S Geobor, muds and fluids, overburden drilling and large diameter drilling. There were geotechnical exhibition displays showing a sample of Epiroc T-Wiz, Powerbit and hand-held range, mobile mud cleaning equipment as well as a large diameter display. The Terracore coring bit range was shown including a cut-out cross-section of the S Geobor core barrel to illustrate the mechanism inside the core barrel when using the different methods. Its experts were on hand after their presentations to chat to and go through the customer’s particular requirements or questions regarding product application and selection.
"Our idea was to invite our customers to a geotechnical product training day from our product specialists and also take the opportunity to welcome our customers to our impressive new premises in Grangemouth. It was great to meet and interact with over 40 customers and to receive such positive feedback from them on the quality of the training they received and our new premises. We were very pleased with the day,” said Petra Grandinson, General Manager, Epiroc UK & Ireland Limited.
