Straightpoint enters Thailand12 May 2020
Straightpoint, part of The Crosby Group, has named Thunder Oilfield Services (TOS) a distributor of its full range of force measurement equipment in Thailand.
TOS specialises in the fabrication, training, inspection, maintenance and repair of lifting equipment and components used in the offshore energy industry. It operates throughout Asia Pacific and the Middle East. TOS’s strategic service centre is located in Thailand and also has facilities in Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam.
Straightpoint’s load cells join an extensive fleet of lifting and rigging gear that is stocked across TOS’s global hubs, where they will be used in support of day-to-day activities, offered for rental and direct sale. They will work alongside a comprehensive stock of Crosby rigging hardware as the company delivers services related to offshore operations, onshore support and training. Fabrication, inspection and maintenance of cranes and other lifting equipment in the offshore energy sector will cover the majority of the workload.
Travis Dupre, CEO at TOS, said: “The timing of onboarding the [Straightpoint] equipment hasn’t been perfect because we’ve encountered unexpected slowdowns related to the COVID-19 pandemic just as we were starting to gain momentum. However, that is a short-term issue; longer term, we are confident that the equipment will be integral to continued growth of the business as the offshore sector in Thailand and further afield returns to normality—and prosperity—particularly as we enter the second half of the year.”
