Powermaq USA Staff Boasts Expert Machinists Experienced in Offshore, Subsea, Power Plant, Oil & Gas and Industrial Equipment Repairs.

Brazil-based Powermaq  has launched its first global field services company. From its U.S. headquarters in Portland, Ore., the new venture will offer expert machining and repair services for heavy industry worldwide.

Powermaq USA is staffed with professional managers, engineers, technicians and field machining experts who came from the world’s leading field services companies, including GE, ABB, Furmanite, Climax and others. Several of the technicians and machinists have more than 20 years’ experience in on-site machining. Their deep experience includes projects in nuclear facilities, oil and gas refineries, mining operations, as well as subsea environments and a host of other industrial locations.

“Because we’ve been able to recruit highly skilled field technicians to join our team, we’re offering our customers a significant value from day one of our existence,” said Philip Bauder, CEO of Powermaq USA. “It’s a win-win for customers. Our field services crews have decades of experience handling a myriad of demanding repair and maintenance projects, and they have the versatility of the larger field services businesses. But given our size, we are more nimble and can offer a highly competitive price point for the same high quality service.”

To perform the difficult repairs required, the POWERMAQ USA crew is equipped with state-of-the-art portable machine tools which are known for peak performance in challenging on-site repairs -- whether refacing a severely corroded flange in a refinery, repairing leaks to pipelines offshore or undersea, or doing turbine maintenance at a power plant.

Powermaq USA technicians can mobilize within 24 hours to adeptly handle emergency repairs, and also are an excellent supplement to a company’s existing workforce during a planned shutdown or outage.

The Powermaq USA venture is headed by Philip Bauder and Aldo Ronco. Bauder is a veteran of the portable machining industry, having worked as the director of global business development for Furmanite and also as Vice President of International Sales at Climax Portable Machining and Welding Systems. Ronco is an engineer and the founder of Powermaq, a company specializing in portable machine tool sales and field machining in Brazil and Latin America. Ronco previously worked in management positions for international companies including General Electric and AEG.

Powermaq will oversee field service operations in Brazil and South America; Powermaq USA will coordinate field machining business in the North America and the rest of the world.
