Amarinth Taps Into Oil And Gas Projects In Africa With New Territory Sales Manager
Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, LNG, chemical, industrial, power and desalination markets has appointed a new Sales Manager for Africa Territory to support the strong growth the company is seeing in new oil and gas projects being undertaken in the region.
The company in a statement said the appointment of the new territory Sales Manager for Africa would further enable the company tap into the region’s oil and gas industry.
it noted that Africa has in recent time experienced a surge in new oil and gas projects with challenging projects being planned or delivered, such as Bonga FPSO Deepwater Project 120km South-West of the Niger Delta in a water depth of over 1,000m; Tilenga oil exploration and processing project in Uganda; Lake Albert Development Project in Uganda which expects to achieve around 230,000 bopd and Train 7 LNG project in Nigeria which will increase the NLNG facility’s production capacity by 35 per cent.
Amarinth has a strong track record of working in close partnership supporting EPCs and contractors around the world who require class-leading products, often with a bespoke design on short lead times, as underlined by the company’s on-going investment in staff and offices for the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
Till date, Amarinth has been supporting EPCs and contractors delivering projects in the Africa territory with existing sales staff based in its UK headquarters.
However, the company has decided that the time is right to appoint a dedicated permanent Sales Manager for the Africa Territory. Itai Choto will split his time between bases in Nigeria and London as needed to deliver support to end-users, EPCs and contractors working on projects in Africa. Initially, Itai will be focused on the countries where Amarinth believes its expertise and products are in most demand, including: Nigeria, Algeria, Uganda, Mozambique, and Senegal.
The Managing Director of Amarinth, Oliver Brigginshaw, said: “We have seen strong growth in demand for our products from EPCs and contractors delivering against the challenging projects currently being undertaken in the Africa Territory. We always strive to deliver localised support where we can, as in the case of our established Middle East and Asia Pacific territories, and so we are delighted to now be in a position to announce the appointment of Itai Choto who will enable us to better support all of our customers working in the Africa Territory.”Itai Choto – recently appointed Amarinth Sales Manager for the Africa Territory.
