Claxton chases Middle East markets after record-breaking year
Claxton Engineering Services is rounding off a record-breaking year by opening a new office and warehouse in Dubai as it targets extra growth in the Middle East. The Great Yarmouth based company has also won a long-term contract with the Kuwait Oil Company for well-head maintenance and well intervention.
Nick Marriott has also recently joined the business as commercial manager to lead its new assault on the market. “30 years ago I started my career in the oilfield from Gt. Yarmouth” Nick said.
And it is very refreshing to find companies like Claxton centred from Gt. Yarmouth successfully competing in the global market place with innovative products.
“A major focus for our growth will be the Middle East, however the consistent demands for our primary products and services, supported by our safety and quality accreditations, generate opportunities in every area of the world where the exploitation of hydrocarbons takes place”.
Laura Claxton, managing director of the key provider of specialist surface wellhead, drilling and tensioning equipment to the oil and gas industries, stated “We are looking to aggressively grow the 22-year-old company and develop our marketing activities in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, “There are opportunities out there that we want to fully exploit. 2007 has brought another year-on-year growth and we expect to record our highest turnover to date this year. “We will also be creating new jobs, recruiting and training new staff. The new premises in Dubai will support and develop our business growth in the Middle East. We already supply to Dubai, Oman, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi.” She said the new site, in the Jebel Ali free-zone, was only awaiting the licence and final approvals before opening. “It tops off a good year in which there has been increasing demand for our range of products and services,” she said. “And reflects the development of our sales department and the encouraging state of our industry’s climate at the moment.
Claxton continues to build on a foundation of unrivalled experience in the field and its reputation for leading-edge equipment, service quality and responsiveness.
