AN Aberdeen headquartered drilling equipment inspection and maintenance firm has expanded its Houston division investing in larger premises and appointing two new US technical directors to manage its international operations.
RigQuip, which opened an office in Houston last year, has now moved into a 15,000sq ft service facility, including office, workshop and yard space to support its growing client base.
Chuck Tuley joins as operations director, with Joe Klimple as manufacturing and service director.
Launched in 2006, the privately owned business, which specialises in drilling equipment, engineering, service and parts, has a global presence with operations in the UK, UAE, Singapore, USA and Mexico.
Matt Fraser, RigQuip managing director, said: “As we continue to scale our business internationally, establishment of enhanced US facilities and appointment of a new team of directors to run our global operations are key components of our strategy.
“Many of our major clients are headquartered in Houston and the talent base here also remains very strong. With Chuck and Joe at the helm of our senior management team, the business will continue its success in the US and overseas.”
Headquartered in the Granite City’s Union Plaza, with service facilities in Dyce, RigQuip has a team of 60 across its six worldwide locations.
