Subsea Technology & Rentals announces strategic partnership with US pigging expert CDI
SDI welcomes new partnership for Scottish company STR forged on Scottish pavilion at OTC in May 2017
Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR), a specialist in the design, production and rental of advanced subsea technology are delighted to announce it has formed a new partnership with CDI, an elite International Pipeline Pig Tracking, Signalling and Communications Equipment Company.
This agreement will provide STR’s global customer base with access to CDI’s pipeline pig locating, tracking, and passage detection equipment. Coinciding with STR’s recent expansion into Aberdeen, this will allow STR to provide this this offering, along with its full suite of technology and support services to its continuously evolving North Sea clientele.
Scott Johnstone, Managing Director, STR said, “Following our recent expansion into Aberdeen, we are pleased to announce our strategic partnership with CDI. This relationship was formed in Houston at OTC in May 2017, in which STR exhibited as part of Scottish Development International on the Scottish Pavilion. CDI, who are based in Oklahoma, USA, were looking to partner with a Scottish based organisation and visited the Scottish Pavilion to introduce themselves to STR”.
Following OTC 2017, CDI visited STR’s UK headquarters in Great Yarmouth to meet the team and provide training on its equipment before travelling to Aberdeen to visit STR’s newly opened offices and attend Offshore Europe.
Scott Johnstone, Managing Director, STR said: “We firmly believe that our partnership with CDI demonstrates the importance of continuing to market our organisation and attending elite trade shows as part of the Scottish Pavilion in the current market conditions. We are excited to work CDI, who are a well-established organisation that come with a wealth of experience”.
Ewen Cameron, Head of Trade and Investment for Energy at Scottish Development International, said: “This is a fantastic outcome for STR and is testament to the strength and international profile of the Scottish delegation at OTC, which was a great event by all accounts. That we were able to attract high calibre US companies to the Scotland Pavilion to meet with our companies really underlines the value of taking part in these key industry events in overseas markets.
“All credit to the management team at STR; the fact that they quickly followed up introductory meetings to agree a deal with CDI within only a few months will, I’m sure, have played a big part in securing this result.
“These shows play a key role in helping Scottish companies to broaden their horizons by providing a ‘safe environment’ to explore overseas markets and make valuable international connections. So I would encourage any company considering international trade to get in touch to find out about how we can support them.”
