Weir signs new agency agreement in Brunei

DUBAI: Weir Solutions continues to develop its relationships and demonstrate its commitment to national oil companies across the Asia Pacific with a new agency agreement in Brunei Darussalam.

The agreement is the culmination of several months of collaboration with PTAS, based in Kuala Belait, Brunei Darussalam, to develop a strategy to leverage the strengths of the two companies to deliver world class engineering solutions for rotating equipment in the country.

For 30 years, PTAS has provided many different service solutions to its end users and partners in Brunei. The agreement with Weir Solutions will enable both companies to develop in- country solutions while being able to leverage the existing support and services available from Weir’s Centers of Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence in Dubai, UAE.

“I am excited by the new opportunities open to both companies in Brunei,” said Chris Payne, Weir Solutions FZE’s Rotating Equipment Business Manager. “The partnership between our two companies will enable us to provide a viable alternative to OEM’s when it comes to support, spare parts supply and services for all types of rotating equipment.”

To be able to more closely work with and engage our customers is an important advancement in providing Weir’s world class solutions in this region.”
