Trelleborg opens new Houston office for marine operations
HOUSTON -- Trelleborg’s marine systems operation has opened a new sales and business development office in Houston, Texas.
Citing growth in the region as a strategic priority, Trelleborg Marine Systems’ U.S. president, Faiyaz Kolsawala, will relocate to Houston as will a number of its global sales team. Among them will include a specialist docking and mooring representative and an oil and gas transfer and vessel technology salesperson to provide a closer relationship with customers in the area. Trelleborg will further strengthen its Houston-based sales team with several new appointments.
“We will join colleagues from Trelleborg’s offshore operation in its facility, enabling us to work more collaboratively across functions,” said Richard Hepworth, business unit president of Trelleborg Marine Systems.
The regional sales office will serve the local U.S. and Mexican region across all five product areas of Trelleborg’s marine operations: marine fender systems, oil and gas transfer technology, vessel technology, docking and mooring and marine products.
