Wilton Engineering Buys Teesside EEW OSB Facility from EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH

EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH has announced that it has sold the facility of EEW OSB to Wilton Engineering, a neighbour of EEW OSB. The contract was signed at the end of June.

The facility, which is located on the river Tees, has a 17 ha (42 acre) site at its disposal that will help Wilton to boost its capacity and capabilities for their business and will create about 200 new jobs.

Since the start of production in 2015, EEW OSB has successfully completed several offshore wind projects. More than 200 transition pieces have been produced in Teesside.

However, one of EEW’s goals is to focus on the global offshore monopile market and has therefore decided to close the Haverton Hill plant.

“We are very pleased that Wilton, one of our long-term partners, has decided to acquire the EEW OSB site in order to increase its manufacturing, logistics and storage capacity. We wish Wilton all the best for their future business”, says Sascha Hofmeister, former Managing Director of EEW OSB.

An official handover ceremony took place on 15 July 2021.
