KOP Surface Products Expands in the Middle East


In a move to strengthen its presence in the Middle East, KOP Surface Products has opened two new bases in Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Patrick Annand joins the company as the new base manager for the Qatar facility, while Mufeed A Al Ibrahim is named as the new base supervisor for the Saudi Arabia location. A further new addition, Bassam Ismail, joins KOP Surface Products as sales manager for Abu Dhabi and Iraq.

“Over the past year we have been gradually developing our business in the Middle East and these latest investments reflect our commitment to the region and our growing customer base here,” explained Andy Briston, VP sales and marketing at KOP Surface Products. “In the Middle East, and worldwide, we are seeing customers pushing for greater productivity and profitability from their operations. Demand for high quality products that deliver a solid return on investment is on the rise in this region – and we are in the perfect position to meet those expectations.”

KOP Surface Products’ range of surface wellheads, trees, valves and actuators are manufactured at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Batam, Indonesia, and are shipped to customers in the oil and gas industry worldwide.

The company’s new warehouse facilities in Qatar and Saudi Arabia offer fast and efficient service to customers, while the growing sales team brings more expertise to the KOP Surface Products team.

“Within our company we have strong experience in the Middle East – and we can now offer more products and services to customers faster than ever before,” adds Briston. “Our customers are looking for a partner that can deliver value through helping them run more efficient operations and that is exactly what we do.”
