Ashtead Technology has completed its US$2 million investment in a new Houston facility. The new building is three times the size of the previous address, allowing the global subsea equipment solutions firm to increase their service lines and capabilities from their Gulf of Mexico headquarters.
The company has signed a seven-year lease and moved into a 31,000ft2 building at the heart of their customer base in the city’s Northwest Freeway and Sam Houston Toll way area. The space has been redesigned and developed to accommodate new offices, workshops and a warehouse all under the same roof.
Ashtead Technology had previously resided in the Katy area for more than 20 years. Its new two-storey high premises feature integration and calibration labs; electrical, mechanical and calibration workshops; a cable moulding workshop; a training room for equipment demonstration and educating its personnel and clients; a high-pile storehouse; and open plan offices for management and administration staff.
US regional vice president, Steven Thrasher said: “The company is enjoying a period of strong growth and we have capitalised on the opportunity to further improve our Houston facility and capabilities to better serve our clients both in the US and internationally. As well as providing us with the space to offer a much wider range of solutions and services, the new facility is in a key location giving our clients easier access and transport connectivity to our support base.”
Ashtead Technology is exhibiting at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) event in Houston between 6-9 May 2019 and can be found at stand 1501.
