Probe's can-do and collaborative approach

Can-do and collaborative

We leverage the knowledge and experience of our clients and project partners to deliver the best possible outcomes, addressing problems positively and building long-lasting mutually beneficial relationships.
Responsible and reliable - chain

Responsible and reliable

We understand that our clients rely on us which is why we communicate clearly and provide reassurance on project phases and completion. Our clients can be assured that QHSE comes first in everything that we do. We continually improve to build and maintain confidence as an engineering project partner that delivers.

Quality Promise

Ultimately, quality is about attention to detail and good communication – two things our clients regularly tell us we excel at. Our philosophy of a responsive, practical service is at the heart of our approach to quality management. This is evident in the form of fast response and clear communication of clients’ objectives and requirements and complemented by products of appropriate high quality, reliability, safety and cost effectiveness. We have also implemented a formal Integrated Management System (IMS) and have gained certification to ISO 9001 – 2008.

Service Promise

Our equipment production for the oilfield sector stretches back over 40 years. An early milestone was the purchase of our first CNC lathe in 1987 to provide us with the capacity to machine API and premium threads. Since then our plant list has expanded extensively, and we have grown in to one of the largest manufacturing supply chain partners in the East of England, with clients all over the world. We pride ourselves on offering a responsive personal service, every time you work with us.


Our large amount of raw material held on-site means that we can respond effectively to client’s urgent requirements. We believe this sets us apart from our competitors by allowing us to meet very short lead times to ensure that our client’s projects maintain momentum without quality being compromised. We understand the tight deadlines which are placed on oilfield suppliers which is why we pride ourselves on offering this fast-responsive service to minimise the pressure on our clients.


Our in-house raw material stock held is generally more than 1,000 tonnes and we can therefore meet urgent delivery times from this holding. All our stocks are subject to receiving full inspections and we have state of the art in-house facilities to perform a variety of non-destructive testing including ultrasonic examination, magnetic particle inspection, liquid penetrant inspection and Brinell hardness testing.

About us

 “One of the key drivers for using Probe is that we are always guaranteed that the solution they provide meets our requirements and specifications. Having a full in-house capability along with Probe’s considerable experience, provides us with the reassurance that we are receiving a quality product. This is whilst achieving the savings we are looking for, as it minimises inefficiencies and lead times that other service companies may have. The hot tapping machine was supplied in the agreed lead-time and in-line with our expectations.”


About us

“Working alongside the Probe team enabled SRP to provide a solution that enabled our client to benefit from our collective experience and expertise. They received a full turnkey, project designed, manufactured and tested solution from the Acteon collaborative supply chain, in line with their expectations and timeframes. We now hope to cement our collaboration with Probe to provide a turnkey supply route for our Rocksteady range of mooring connectors moving forward.”
