Suretank inaugurates new head office in Dunleer, Ireland

Suretank, a provider of engineered solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry, has celebrated the official opening of its new corporate centre in Ireland.

Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD officially opened the new building.   The multi million Euro investment at the Group’s head office in Dunleer, Ireland, marks an important stage in the company’s history. Suretank is ramping up its programme of organic and acquisition led growth to strengthen its reach in the market and positioning as the world’s leading provider of engineered solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry.

Suretank customers travelled from the USA, Brazil, Nigeria, Norway, UK and the Netherlands to join in the celebrations.

Patrick Joy, founder and chairman of Suretank, said: “This is an important day for us and one that we are delighted to be able to share with our customers. Without them we wouldn’t be here. We’re very proud of our achievements over the last 20 years and our new corporate centre is befitting of the high quality engineering solutions provider that Suretank is today. This is an opportunity to showcase our people, capabilities and expertise.”

Significant change has taken place within Suretank in recent months as it looks to expand into new markets and continue to grow. HitecVision, a leading investor in the international oil and gas industry, became the majority shareholder in the business in July 2013 and John Fitzgerald joined the company as the newly appointed Chief Executive Officer.

Commenting on his ambitious plans for the future Fitzgerald said: “We have a very clear organic and acquisition led growth strategy to help us achieve our vision to become the world’s leading provider of engineering solutions to the offshore oil and gas industry. Our focus will be on developing new market territories and deeper market penetration in our markets in Asia, Africa and the Americas, whilst continuing to focus on our customers in the North Sea with an absolute attention to customer care. Acquisitions will be targeted to areas that offer product extension possibilities and new market positions. We will continue to champion product development and innovation initiatives.”

Customer care is of paramount importance to the company and Philip Murphy, as the recently appointed Director of Customer Care explained: “We’re committed to ensuring that all our clients receive a world class customer experience through our problem solving and service, product quality and design, value for money and overall customer care. That’s why today is so important to us to enable customers to meet with our team and see for themselves how we operate.”

Suretank is the world’s largest manufacturer of tanks and cargo-carrying units for the offshore oil and gas industry. All of its products are produced to DNV 2.7-1 certification as standard.

Suretank products are found worldwide, including the North Sea, West Africa, Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Caspian, Sakhalin Sea, India, Australia, Middle East and the Far East. Its product range includes chemical and acid tanks, helifuel tanks, offshore containers (workshops, A60’s and reefer containers), baskets, mudskips and cryogenic tanks.
