We recently sat down with Justin Benson, Managing Director of Impregnation Services Limited, to discuss his history at the company, what sets Impregnation apart from its competitors, and their new investment in pressure testing services. 

Tell us about Impregnation Services Limited; what services do you provide? What sectors do you serve?

My wife and I bought Impregnation Services about 14 years ago now and we love it! We’ve been absolutely bowled over by the industry. Impregnation Services itself goes back to 1964, and we believe now it’s better than it’s ever been. We provide services to the automotive sector, and to a lot of valve manufacturers in the North West. We impregnate with acrylic resin virtually any porous substrate, but mainly aluminium, bronze,  cast irons, so mostly cast metals, but the reality is, we can impregnate anything if it’s porous. Come and see us!

Impregnation Services Limited provides an expert vacuum impregnation service to a range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, and marine. What do you think sets Impregnation Services Limited apart from its competition?

That’s simple… and, it’s not me!  It’s the team here at ISL who are the key. We focus on the customer experience. We communicate well, we impregnate well, and we work swiftly to give the best solution possible to all our customers.  Perfect.

Impregnation has recently designed and developed new equipment to bolster its pressure testing service operations. How will this investment in your pressure testing capabilities benefit your customers?

We’ve always needed to support our customers by offering some pressure testing, primarily to prove our process of course, and save unnecessary transport and re-work cost. Over the years we have built our reputation and now support a small number of customers with pressure testing outside of our core Impregnation offering. We realised recently that we can work cleverer, and so we have made a few investments in kit that allows us to automate parts of the testing process and, therefore, work faster. Everybody wins this way! We are also able to quickly develop tooling for testing, so this is an offering that we hope to expand more over time.
