W&O Supply, a global supplier of marine and upstream oil and gas pipe, valves and fittings, valve automation, and engineered solutions, has been selected by PG Marine Group – Ing Per Gjerdrum AS as its exclusive sales agent in the U.S. and Canada.


As an industry leader in cargo handling systems for Offshore Service Vessels (OSV) and Special Tankers (heavy chemicals, bitumen, and liquid sulphur), PG Marine Group’s offerings range from simple pumps and pumping systems to automated, bridge-integrated computerized solutions.  With PG’s state-of-the-art products and systems, and W&O’s vast footprint and customer relationships, both companies recognized the significance a partnership could bring to their clients and the industry.


Roy Norum, CEO of PG Marine Group said: “PG has been in the North American market since 2000.  As the market has seen technological advancements and economic development, our business model needed to change to accelerate our growth.  We are pleased to announce our partnership with W&O, in which we expect solid growth due to the professional and dedicated teams of both companies.  Our knowledge of cargo handling systems combined with W&O’s experience and reputation as a market leader creates a mutually beneficial partnership that will provide customers throughout the U.S. and Canada even more solutions for their operations.”


As the exclusive North American sales agent for all PG Marine products, W&O will utilize their extensive branch and sales network to represent the company and their services including PG-MACS (Multi Application Cargo Solution).  This revolutionary system provides the most cost efficient, flexible cargo handling system available in the marketplace for OSV’s and offers a tailor made product focusing on safe and secure below-deck handling of Drill Cuttings and other Hazardous Slops.


“By partnering with PG Marine Group, W&O is better positioned to provide its customers with even more unique, cost-saving solutions to the marine and upstream oil and gas industries”, said Michael Hume, President and CEO of W&O. “We look forward to a lasting relationship based on our mutual commitment of supplying the highest quality support and service to this ever growing market”.


As the exclusive Global Sales Channel for the Hyde GUARDIAN® Ballast Water Treatment solution (BWTS) to the OSV segment, PG Marine will also utilize W&O’s team of experts on the education and sale of the systems to the upstream oil and gas market.  In a 3-way partnership, W&O was also named as the exclusive North American sales distributor for Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS to the marine industry.
