The new facility will allow the company to offer local repair and technical support services for manipulator, ROV, and subsea controls product lines. Training services will also be offered from the new location, including a state-of-the-art 3D visualization and training system that incorporates GRI Simulations’ VROV ROV simulation software. This new system will support operator training and mission planning services for Schilling Robotics’ clients.
In addition to expanding its support services, the Houston office will add a complete project team, including engineering and program management, to locally support remote systems design and build programs.
The team will work with clients who use the company’s ROV and subsea controls product lines, to assist with applications and custom system designs.
Vice President and Regional Manager Jason Stanley said: "Leading others to empowerment by offering complete subsea remote solutions is Schilling’s focus. We knew that the next step was adding a Gulf of Mexico facility where our clients would be guaranteed immediate access to first-class service."
Schilling Robotics opened its Houston regional office in January 2005 with a small sales contingent, and immediately began adding industry veterans and experts in program management and engineering support.
At the beginning of 2006, the company grew the team to include experienced, supervisor-level offshore field service personnel, trainers, and factory service technicians. Additional field service personnel are currently being hired.
“Supporting our products and ensuring our clients’ success is our first priority at Schilling,” said CEO Tyler Schilling. “We remain focused on offering the very best personnel to maintain this commitment.”
Schilling Robotics has partnered with Sub-Atlantic of Aberdeen, UK in the Schilling Sub-Atlantic Alliance to offer what it claims is the widest range of advanced subsea robotics in the world.
The Houston office will also offer onsite repair, training, and service support for Sub-Atlantic products.
