TIG weld in the dark

We don’t normally TIG weld in the dark, but when we do, it makes for a fantastic photograph!

10-in-1 line

Super-insulated vacuum lines usually have one internal feed pipe for fluid or gas transfer at cryogenic temperatures. Here our engineers are mocking up a complex 10-in-1 line with integral thermocouple mounts. The finished line will be around 14 metres long!

Bespoke chiller manufacturers

We constantly get asked what we do here at GRE, so whilst it might take five minutes of your time – and you’ll have to hum your own background music, we’ve made a great Powerpoint video, which will explain more.

We’d love you to share it far and wide if you’re able.


Thermal Engineers

GRE are delighted to announce that Steve Alford has joined the company as Commercial Manager.

Steve comes to GRE with a huge amount of knowledge in sales, marketing and company operations, having over 20 years experience as a sales director of a property company and finance director of an affiliate organisation.  His role at GRE will see him head up our sales and marketing activities, as well as monitoring finance and other aspects concerning the day to day running of the business.

Whilst not a qualified engineer, Steve is, in his own words, an ‘inveterate tinkerer’, who is always willing to wield a spanner or soldering iron.  With a passion for restoring classic cars and model flight (he is a qualified commercial drone pilot), we certainly consider him as an ‘engineer at heart’.

Currently working hard to develop the GRE brand, being out and about meeting our clients whilst being buried in technical data, Steve has certainly hit the ground running and it already feels as though he has been with the company for years!


Depending on the application and the customer this can include pressure, temperature, flow, conductivity and oxygen.

That’s why our coded welders take the time to produce high end products and inspect their work to ensure it meets the stringent specifications our customers require.
