If energy is the lifeblood of a modern economy, then producing energy, whether it be from fossil fuels nuclear or wind power, must surely be the heart that circulates this lifeblood to where it is needed.
Langley businesses can be found active in several key areas at the “heart” of the energy sector. Stothert & Pitt cranes for example are to be found in the North Sea, one of the world’s harshest environments, where many of the off-shore platforms rely heavily on this equipment to offload vital supplies in raging seas; whilst ashore, Claudius Peters ash handling technology in coal-fired power stations and LPG distribution vehicles from Protran have their equally important parts to play in the energy business.
