ACE Winches a global leader in the design, manufacture and hire of winches, marine deck machinery and the provision of associated hire personnel for the offshore oil and gas, marine and renewable energy industries has appointed a new representative in Indonesia to expand its international business.
To enhance support to existing clients and secure new contracts in South East Asia, ACE Winches has appointed Indonesian company Abumas in Jakarta as its local representative and agent.
Managing Director of Abumas, David Philp, stated: “Abumas is a group of companies supplying products and services to the oil and gas industry in South East Asia with a primary focus in Indonesia. We are delighted to have ACE Winches on our vendor list and have the opportunity to work with them to support the offshore sector operating out of Indonesia.”
Alfie Cheyne, ACE Winches’ CEO stated “Abumas Group was instrumental in supporting us on a recent contract to supply equipment and personnel to a major operator involved in the Jangkrik Muara Bakau Block Project. ACE Winches supplied products and services to support its well intervention and subsea well head deployment activities.”
In addition to the equipment ACE Winches supplied multi-skilled personnel to work with and train the operator’s crew in specialist winch applications.
A number of ACE Winches clients are currently working in South East Asia and recently the company has successfully secured and delivered £10 million in equipment and products. The company was looking at how it could provide further support from within the region as it expands its international markets. Having a partner based in Indonesia will enable the company to quickly connect with oil and gas companies to provide them with the full product range, expert advice and technical expertise to help manage their specific requirements.
