KOP Surface Products has expanded two of its key storage and service locations in Thailand to ensure it continues to meet its customer commitments following a five-year deal with multinational energy corporation, Chevron. As part of the contract KOP Surface Products will deliver operational support to Chevron’s on- and off-shore activities in Thailand. The expansion of its Thailand facilities will help KOP Surface Products support Chevron while providing sufficient additional capacity to service new contracts in the country as they arise.
The new warehouse and workshop at KOP Surface Products’ Sattahip site in Chonburi Province, located in the Gulf of Thailand, spans an impressive 1,500m2. At the same site a new 450m2 office is being built for the 15 employees who will serve customers in the region. Meanwhile in the south of Thailand, KOP Surface Products’ Songkhla premises is being extended to include a 3,000m2 covered warehouse and a 300m2 office. KOP Surface Products currently has 40 onshore employees and 55 offshore service engineers based in Thailand.
“We aim to be as close to our customers as possible to deliver parts and service support as soon as it’s needed,” explains John Andersen, Global Lifecycle Services Manager. “Both of these sites are strategically located to offer the best service to customers – so it makes sense to invest in these important locations as we see demand for our products and services grow in Thailand.”
KOP Surface Products supplies surface wellheads and other important components and equipment to the oil and gas industry. Its products are built to exacting standards and maintained through a network of local engineers.
