Shell global supply contract awarded for sealing products

The contract covers an initial 5 year period with an option to extend for another five. In addition to supplying gaskets for the nominated areas James Walker & Teadit will provide Shell with a secondary source of supply across the remaining areas of the globe as well as meeting the sealing requirements for new projects throughout the company’s upstream and downstream operations. In addition, the two suppliers will provide ancillary products such as compression packing, expansion joints, pipe grips and flange management services on a global basis.

The James Walker and Teadit partnership provides complementary geographical manufacturing and support locations and a combined product range that covers all requirements.

Diederik Neeb, managing director of James Walker Sealing Products and Services Ltd, spoke of the contract being a significant moment in the company’s history; “Being awarded a contract of this nature from a respected global business such as Shell is indeed a privilege and an event that will be a considerable driving force within our business for the years ahead. Our partnership with Teadit is also an exciting development – one that we hope will be the foundation of further opportunities for our two companies to collaborate across a broader range of industries and applications.”

President of Teadit, Chris Day, was equally excited by the potential offered in the contract; “Working together on a project such as this will bring significant benefits to both our companies in terms of sharing resources, materials knowledge, manufacturing best practices and expertise. This contract with Shell offers a unique chance to work alongside a recognised leader in material and product specifications for the oil and gas industry and hopefully take the opportunity to help drive towards future gains in sealing product safety and performance.”
