T.D. Williamson (TDW), a leading provider of pipeline equipment and services, announced that it opened its first office in Korea.

This new office will enable TDW to provide customers in the region with technical solutions based upon its specialist pipeline intervention and isolation technologies.
The opening of its first office in Korea marks an important milestone in the company’s plans to further expand into the Far East. “Korea is an emerging market domestically,” said Gunavel Rathinam, General Manager – Asia Pacific for TDW. “Major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors - such as Hyundai, Samsung,  Daelim, SK, and GS - that are extremely successful in the Far East-Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa are based in Korea.”

Kisung Han, TDW Sales Manager – Korea, oversees the office and is responsible for driving new business development initiatives throughout the country. “Being closer to our customers always helps open doors to new opportunities to serve the end users,” said Han.

Located on the fourth floor of the Haesung Building in the Gangnam-gu district of Seoul, the new office is used by TDW staff working to cultivate relationships with EPCs in the region. When TDW begins providing customers with its special services, which range from hot tapping and STOPPLE® plugging to SmartPlug® pressure isolation services, operations in Korea will be supported by the TDW facility in Singapore. As opportunities arise elsewhere, TDW will carry out these operations by relying on its global network.
