EnerQuip, designer and manufacture of torque machines and associated products, has announced the opening of a new facility in Houston following a growing demand for its products and services. The company has invested $1 million in this strategically positioned facility, EnerQuip Torque Solutions Inc. This new operation will improve response times directly into Canada and the Americas. The US Operation will complement the facilities in Aberdeen and Caithness, Scotland and is key to the success and growth of the company as it expands international sales and service support for any make and model of torque machine.

EnerQuip envisages the Houston headcount will at least double in the next six months with jobs being created for service technicians and business development roles.

Director, Andrew Robins said: “Houston is a key strategic market for us, whilst we have entered into it earlier than planned, this was driven by the successes we have had in the area. Our investment in Houston marks a firm commitment to the region and positive start to 2017. We will actively be employing staff locally to meet the demand in this area.”
