Proserv and JCE Group have announced a strategic working partnership in the Middle East and Africa region.
The agreement will see Proserv supporting the hazardous environment specialist by offering its products and services while simultaneously delivering in-country engineering and technical support. Together, the companies are aiming to further build on their standards of quality, service and reliability, and help cultivate a world-class QHSE culture.
The firms originally discussed a partnership in 2013 after members of Proserv’s senior staff were impressed with the capabilities of the Solar Power Pod, one of JCE Group’s product range. It is believed the product is the world’s only Zone 1 system that can use solar energy in remote areas which lack conventional power and where resources are limited, including oil-wells, pumping stations, production facilities, effluent plants and fuel storage.
Andy Anderson, Proserv’s president for MEA, said: “Proserv has a long and successful track record in the region where our working relationship with JCE Group goes back more than two years. Through recognising that an increasing demand for JCE’s high-quality products fits in with that of Proserv’s suite of technologies and service proposition, establishing a partnership became apparent as the strategic way forward.
“JCE shares our values and business aspirations to deliver a high-value and integrated offering with an unparalleled service, and we look forward to creating new business opportunities together and expanding our footprint across the region in the oil and gas sector.”
Martin Craig at JCE Group, said: “By combining JCE Group’s industry expertise and status as a market leading ATEX & IECEx solutions provider with Proserv’s worldwide reputation as a leading International Energy Services company, this new partnership allows both JCE & Proserv to offer an unrivalled client-focused service, as well as providing both product and technical expertise which we believe has never been offered in the region before.”
