Previously in European Oil and Gas Magazine in December 2012, Matco Asia has enjoyed ongoing growth and success over recent years, with high levels of business and shipping resulting in record sales throughout 2011 and 2012. This growth is set to continue, as recentinvestments and ongoing training will enable the firm to take advantage of the booming oil and gas market.

In 2013 Matco Asia has been awarded several major contracts, including a three-year service contract with Petronas Carigali Vietnam (PVCL). Matco Asia has a long history of serving wellknown global oil and gas firms and boasts a 100 per cent successful project completion record since its inception.

Assuch, 2011 was an important year for the ongoing evolution of Matco Asia, as it not only marked 30 years of commitment to customers and partners in the oil and gas market, but also announced the company’s relocation to new facilities at Joo Koon Crescent. This cutting edge building not only further cements the firm’sdedication to its customers and partners, but also strengthens its services through increased productivity and efficiency in the processes of assembly and production.

Following decades of building the foundations of its business, Matco Asia has developed a distinguished, widespread presence and excellent reputation for high quality, flexible, comprehensive services. This diversity isachieved through its affiliations with the Matco Asia Group, of which Matco Asia (Singapore) is its technical and commercial hub. Thegroup, which also includes the divisions Matco (Thailand) Co, Matco Asia Indonesia, Matco Asia Myanmar, Matco Malaysia Sbn. Bhd., Matco Asia Vietnam, Matco Asia Brunei and Matco Asia Pilipinas, gives Matco a competitive edge due to its expansive presence in the region.

The actuators and the construction of control panels for said actuators is the company’s main product line, with the portfolio for actuators including products from manufacturers such as Bettis, Shafer, Dantorque and Kinetrol.
