Forum Energy Technologies (FET) is pleased to announce that it has opened an office outside Rio de Janeiro to better serve its customers operating in the growing Brazilian market. The new office is a continuation of Forum's strategy to broaden its global footprint and to improve its ability to respond to customers operating in this burgeoning offshore region.
Cris Gaut, chairman and CEO of Forum, commented: "It is a great time to increase our presence in Latin America and, in particular, the Brazilian deepwater market. Production in the region is expected to double within the next five years and Forum's products are especially well suited to the demands of developing Brazil's ultra deepwater deposits and to the supporting infrastructure."
The office will be led by Antonio Garcia, Country Manager. Prior to this appointment, he was General Manager of Venezuela for Forum's Valve Solutions group. The new office will initially focus on the company's subsea technologies and valve solutions business lines, but eventually all products will be represented.
Forum's Brazil unit is currently located in temporary offices at Barra Trade V, Av Luiz Carlos Prestes, 180 / 3º andar, Barra da Tijuca, RJ, CEP: 22775-055, Brasil. The phone number is +55 (21) - 2112.4753.
