As the global footprint continues to expand, the already impressive list of regional offices in the UK, US, Dubai, Baku, Saudi Arabia and Jakarta now includes Malaysia where a new regional office to service the APAC area has just opened.

The move is seen as a natural next step and allows the team to channel career-spanning experience of this market into creating a hub which will further extend its reach into Australia and Asia. Under the leadership of APAC Regional Manager Alex MacGregor, the five-strong team based in Kuala Lumpur is already making significant gains by fostering pre-existing relationships and deepening the company’s roots in the area.

Meanwhile significant UK investment has led to the creation of a new research and development hub at VCP’s global headquarters at Westhill, Aberdeenshire, effectively doubling the company’s footprint at its existing premises and redoubling its commitment to the North East of Scotland.

The move will further accelerate VCP’s already enviable track record for innovation, empowering the growing team to continue leading from the front and bring new and exciting products to the market to foster future sustainability and prosperity in all the company’s chosen markets.

In this part of the business alone, three new members of staff have been brought on board to bolster efforts to ensure the pace of development remains brisk and energetic.

Commenting on recent company growth, Ian Kirk of Vulcan Completion Products said: “By creating centres of knowledge simultaneously in the UK and in key overseas locations we can not only grow our presence globally but also strengthen our relationships with current and prospective clients by being physically closer to them.

“Our entire business is built on the importance of customer relationships and the team Vulcan now have on board are probably the most knowledgeable in the field today. By listening to customer needs, and those of the wider industry, we can place them at the heart of our ethos to innovate and evolve our products in step with the requirements of those we serve.

“Adding more people in more locations ensures that all-important reach and investing in our global headquarters in the North East of Scotland consolidates the nucleus from which we will realise our future growth aspirations.”
