In response to high demand for the company’s expertise in the Asia Pacific region, Hydratight is planning to undergo a string of structural changes.
In the last two years Hydratright has grown immensely, and it is expected to double in size every three years in order to keep up with customer demand for its core joint-integrity expertise.
Dean Jenkins, APAC Leader, Hydratight explains that the company’s major customer base comes from the rapidly emerging industrial sectors, and that they have subsequently been recruiting for new staff so they may better cater to the needs of the regions customers.
The region encompasses China and South Korea in the North to Australia and New Zealand in the south.
Mr Jenkins is now based at Hydratight’s central hub in Singapore, while offices in Shanghai and Perth are other important offices. Other business units also now serve smaller geographical centres throughout the region.
“We are placing new people throughout the region, in countries such as South Korea for example, to establish a presence and capture market share,” said Dean.
Ian Smith has recently been appointed as new sales leader for South East Asia, while Neil Ferguson is the new commercial leader for Australia and New Zealand. According to Mr Jenkins, these two new employees have played an integral role in helping to facilitate the restructuring process, by allowing for the creation of a strong regional base.
Hydratight has hired many new, highly trained employees in recent times, and they plan to recruit a number of other people to fulfil key positions within the company.
The expansion will benefit customers in the region immensely, as it means the company can offer them more than just joint-integrity skills.
