NVM has completed a significant investment to support the management buy-out of Cheshire based Thyson Technology (“Thyson” or the “Business”) from a private investor group. Thyson is a specialist analytical and instrumentation business, which designs and constructs engineering solutions used in the analysis and sampling of gases and liquids for process industries engaged in activities such as fossil fuel extraction, processing and distribution, green energy production, water treatment, petrochemicals and nuclear.

Positioning itself as “the measurement solutions provider” Thyson has designed, built and commissioned analyser systems for a large number of blue chip companies across a variety of sectors with facilities around the globe.  Current customers include the National Grid, BP, Air Liquide, ExxonMobil and Qila Energy.

The Business, which enjoys an excellent reputation for its technical expertise is led by Mike Braddock who joined the Business in 2014. Since joining, Braddock has built an experienced management team around him, with Matt Allen as Financial Director, Glen Lancaster as Sales Director, Karl Daniel as Engineering Director and Nick Maguire as Commercial Director

Following NVM’s investment, Thyson is extremely well positioned to continue its growth and development as a total solution provider, applying its full suite of services into existing and new markets both in the UK and overseas.
