Aberdeen-based wireline and well intervention technology specialist Wireline Engineering has boosted operations in the Far East by investing in a new office and supply base in Kuala Lumpur and appointing Craig Glatley as business development manager for the region.

Mr. Glatley has been appointed to head up a new regional sales office in Kuala Lumpur, serving Wireline Engineering’s extensive activity in and also reflecting expanding opportunities for the company throughout the wider territory of SE Asia and Australia.

Mr. Glately will be responsible for supporting the sales director in promoting the company’s products and services, maximizing sales within the region and ensuring customers’ requirements are met to the highest standards of quality and care.

He joins Wireline Engineering with more than 20 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, previously having held the position of business development manager for Sigma Engineering in Abu Dhabi. Prior to this, he was regional manager for Wireline Engineering in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for four years.

Wireline Engineering Managing Director Bill Petrie said: “The new office and appointment was strategic to the long term development and growth of the regional business. Many of Wireline’s Engineering’s Malaysian customers have their head offices nearby but Kuala Lumpur also offers the ideal location from which to develop the rest of the region…By establishing a new regional supply and servicing base in Kuala Lumpur we are also committing to improving the operational support we are able to offer our customers in the area and we hope to have this fully operational by October this year.”

Mr Glately said, “There are huge opportunities for Wireline Engineering throughout the region and we have already seen the benefits of having an increased presence, with over $1m worth of new work already secured and impressive growth prospects for 2013 and beyond.
