The firm said this reflected a strong sales performance underpinned by a series of on-going and new contract wins, including securing customers in new territories.
Pre-tax profits almost doubled to a record £3.09m compared to a profit last year of £1.57m.
The group reported basic earnings per share of 2.99p compared to 1.55p in the prior year, an increase of 92.9%.
The company, which markets its own POS-GRIP method of wellhead engineering, said it was benefitting from increased industry receptiveness to new technology.
This was a result of regulatory and government initiatives focused on safety standards and operational performance in a number of oil equipment related areas, particularly subsea following the Gulf of Mexico incident in 2010.
