HOUSTON – UK-based engineering group Houlder has launched a new venture to support clients headquartered in the US.
Houlder Americas Inc. opened its San Felipe Plaza doors earlier this year and is already undertaking work for clients including Ensco and Schlumberger.
Garry Kennie has relocated from the UK to serve as the company’s president.
Kennie said: “The new venture is the clearest indication yet that Houlder truly operates globally. Providing support to the world’s leading offshore operators and service providers means working closer with our clients operating in Houston.
“Importantly, our business strategy is based on recruiting and retaining a knowledgeable and capable local workforce. It’s what our clients asked for.”
