W&O Europe, a wholly owned subsidiary of W&O Supply, a supplier of pipe, valves, fittings as well as actuation and engineered solutions to the maritime and upstream oil and gas industries, announced it is combining its Antwerp and Rotterdam facilities into one central location in Bergen op Zoom, strategically positioned between the two largest Ports of Europe.

“The new European office will allow us to collaborate more effectively with our suppliers, add business efficiencies and provide a higher level of customer service,” said Michael Hume, President and CEO of W&O. “The facility was chosen with growth in mind, with 2.500m of warehouse to support our specialized marine valve stock and 1.012m of office/showroom space.”

The new facility will be led by Kristof Adam, Managing Director of W&O Europe. Kristof was hired by W&O at the beginning of 2012 to provide more senior-level leadership to its branches and to better serve its customers. Kristof has a network of relationships in the Europe marine industry and has served the industry in a variety of leadership positions.

The new location will include an actuation facility and new test benches to perform classification pressure tests to support the requirements of its customers. W&O understands the unique needs of ship building as well as the repair and retro-fitting industry for all types of vessels. The new facility in combination with the worldwide network of 18 strategically located branches will allow the company to service customers’ needs from anywhere in the world.
