Trelleborg’s marine systems operation announces plans to open a new sales and business development office in Houston, Texas, U.S. Trelleborg said it will establish a local “feet on the ground” presence in the area and confirms the company’s commitment to the global oil and gas industry.

Citing growth in the region as a strategic priority, Trelleborg Marine Systems will relocate its USA President, Faiyaz Kolsawala, to operate from Houston as well as a number of its global sales team, including a specialist docking and mooring representative and a dedicated oil and gas transfer and vessel technology salesperson to provide a closer relationship with customers in the area and the reassurance of a face-to-face presence. Trelleborg will further strengthen its Houston-based sales team with several new appointments.

Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg Marine Systems, said, “At Trelleborg’smarine systems operation, our long-term strategy relies heavily on investment in markets with strong growth potential.  As such, we will join colleagues from Trelleborg’s offshore operation in its facility, enabling us to work more collaboratively across functions.

“As a global company, we strongly believe that it’s important to have a local ‘feet on the ground’ presence within the regions that our customers operate. In particular, we remain committed to growing our business in the fast moving global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry. Therefore, establishing a presence in Houston, the long established capital of the global oil and gas industry, is essential.”

Based within Trelleborg’s Houston facility, the new office will enable both businesses to capitalize on the synergies their complementary product areas provide.

The regional sales office will serve the local U.S. and Mexican region across all five product areas of Trelleborg’s marine operations: marine fender systems, oil and gas transfer technology, vessel technology, docking and mooring and marine products.

The new Houston office will be strongly supported by the Americas’ headquarters in Clearbrook, Virginia, of Trelleborg’s marine operation, which also includes a polyurethane and foam-based marine products manufacturing facility serving the North American and global customer base, as well as Trelleborg’s engineering and design center of excellence in Ahmedabad, India.
