Our Managing Director Stephen Nicol, and Sales Director John O’Donnell took the opportunity to join Michael Hamilton and Tom Teachworth of Stewarts-USA on their exhibition stand at the recent Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2017. The OTC conference is the oil and gas industry’s largest equipment exhibition and was held in Houston, Texas at the beginning of May.
Stewarts-USA is the North and South American distribution and marketing arm for Stewart-Buchanan Gauges products and a key partner for our international operations.
The OTC 2017 event provided Stewarts-USA with a fantastic opportunity to promote our range of products and network with professionals from across the energy industry. It’s a key event for American oil and gas firms and brings together industry leaders, investors, buyers, and entrepreneurs from across the globe to hear the latest scientific and technical advances in the field.
This year, the conference also provided Stephen and John with the chance to support our American partners and experience the OTC event for themselves. The event was a great success and Stephen and John are grateful to Stewarts-USA for letting them help out!
