Business Support

TWI (which stands for The Welding Institute), is a membership-based organisation that provides consultancy services to its members in the areas of materials and joining technologies. TWI’s Technology Centre Wales, works specifically in the field of Non-Destructive Testing of critical structures, such as nuclear power plants, aircraft, submarines and oil rigs.

The state-of-the-art inspection and validation facility at Harbourside Business Park, situated minutes from the M4, makes it easy for the company to serve the needs of its industrial partners throughout Wales and South West England. And being adjacent to Port Talbot Parkway mainline rail station means international clients can fly into London from anywhere in the world and be at the centre in 2½ hours.

But Regional Manager Philip Wallace recognises the decision to locate in Neath Port Talbot didn’t just answer their clients’ requirements.

“It’s also a fantastic place to work and live. Housing in the region is affordable and we’re surrounded by beautiful coastline and countryside. Our staff are our primary asset and being able to provide a good work-life balance and a great place to live is important to the business overall.”
