BRAEMAR OFFSHORE EXPANDS INTO THE THAI MARKET
Braemar Offshore, the global offshore and technical consultancy arm within the Braemar Technical Services division, has expanded its foothold in South East Asia by opening a fully licensed company office in Thailand.
The 1,500 square foot office, situated in Laem Chabang in Chonburi Province, will be manned by a team of marine surveyors, marine engineers, naval architects and structural engineers and ably headed by Capt. Christer Sigurd Friberg as Area Manager.
It will trade under the separately registered company name of Braemar Technical Services (Offshore) (Thailand) Ltd.
Michael Chan Yew Wah, Managing Director of Braemar Offshore, enthused that establishing the office would boost the services the company can provide to new and existing clients in the area. “We will have marine warranty survey, general survey (such as IMCA/OVID) and engineering capability on a first response basis for our clients and be able to meet the needs of our clients more economically. Establishing the office also enhances Braemar Technical Services footprint in the region.”
The Thailand office will act as a single point of contact for the country’s offshore sector, as well as provide localised solutions to client, marketing and business development in the region. It will adopt the same work ethic and operational standards as other Braemar Offshore offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, India and Australia.
