Offshore staff

DUNLEER, IrelandSuretank has entered into a partnership agreement with Louisiana-based Amgulf Fabrication Inc. as part of Suretank's long-term strategy to build local in markets worldwide.

Established last year by Lawrence Detiveaux and Jason Underwood, Amgulf Fabrication is a start-up business based on the business principles of Suretank's founder and chairman Patrick Joy, with Suretank having 25% ownership.

Through the new facility in Houma, Louisiana, Suretank will be offering the full range of DNV 2.7-1 certified equipment including offshore containers, skids, baskets, and skips, with tanks to be added to the portfolio in the future.

Martin Laverty, market development director at Suretank, said, "The US is a significant growth market for Suretank, and we are confident that we have found the right partner with Amgulf Fabrication. Our in-market US manufacturing facilities gives our customers and their staff an opportunity to visit during the equipment build phase and moreover to benefit from hands-on equipment training and advice from our experienced engineering personnel. This model allows for easy vetting of the factory's quality control systems and gives our clients the opportunity to bring their end user to see the equipment before it is delivered."
