EnerQuip invests $1million in US expansion
EnerQuip, designer and manufacture of torque machines and associated products, has announced the opening of a new facility in Houston following a growing demand for its products and services.
The company has invested $1 million in this strategically positioned facility, EnerQuip Torque Solutions Inc. This new operation - which officially launched this month - will improve response times directly into Canada and the Americas
The US Operation will complement the facilities in Aberdeen and Caithness, Scotland and is key to the success and growth of the company as it expands international sales and service support for any make and model of torque machine.
EnerQuip envisages the Houston headcount will at least double in the next six months with jobs being created for service technicians and business development roles.
Director, Andrew Robins, who is heading up the new facility, said: “Houston is a key strategic market for us, whilst we have entered into it earlier than planned, this was driven by the successes we have had in the area. Our investment in Houston marks a firm commitment to the region and positive start to 2017.”
"We are continually looking to expand further in this region and will actively be employing staff locally to meet the demand in this area.”
This latest development is a major step forward for the company, which launched in June 2015. Since starting less than two years ago, EnerQuip has grown significantly in one of the most difficult times for the industry. The company aims to replicate this success at its new Houston Operation with aspirations to expand further across key geographical locations in the future.
Andrew Polson, chairman, commented: “I am delighted with the results we have achieved in such a short period, especially at a tough time for the industry. Following our success over the last year, we are delighted to be able to enhance our global footprint as we go from strength to strength in delivering a 24/7 service to our customers internationally.”
“We now have Torque Machines across every continent and our success is testament to our employees and I’m sure that this approach will serve us well as we begin our journey in Houston.”
