Here at Trelleborg, our long-term strategy relies heavily on investment in markets with strong growth potential. In particular, at Trelleborg Marine Systems, we remain committed to growing our business in the fast moving global Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry.
Therefore, for Trelleborg’s Marine Systems Business Unit, establishing a presence in Houston – the long established capital of the global oil and gas industry – is essential. As such, we are delighted to announce we have opened a new sales and business development office in Houston, Texas, U.S.
The move will see us join colleagues from Trelleborg’s offshore operation in their facility, enabling us to work more collaboratively across functions and allowing both businesses to take advantage of the synergies our complementary product areas provide.
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.
As such, we will relocate our USA President, Faiyaz Kolsawala, to operate from Houston as well as a number of our global sales team, including a specialist docking and mooring representative and a dedicated oil and gas transfer and vessel technology salesperson, both will provide a closer relationship with customers in the area and the reassurance of a face-to-face presence. We will also be further strengthening our Houston-based sales team with several new appointments.
The regional sales office will serve the local U.S. and Gulf of Mexico markets across all five product areas of our 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 Clearbook, Virginia, which also includes 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 Ahmnedabad, India.
