LUX Assure Appoints Brazilian Agents to Initiate Growth in South America
LUX Assure, a specialist in the provision of chemical monitoring and management solutions, has appointed two Brazil-based export agents, Instalações e Engenharia de Corrosão Ltda (IEC) and Paschoalin Consultoria Em Engenharia Ltda, to represent the company and support its CoMic™ and OMMICA™ technology, respectively.
Having experienced growth within the UK over the last year, including a number of senior appointments, the agreements signify the next step in LUX’s plans for international growth.
Emma Perfect, Chief Executive Officer of LUX Assure, said: “LUX attended OTC Brasil 2017 which gave us an excellent introduction to the Brazilian market. It also gave us great confidence that our products are well placed to help operators and service companies in the region to manage their chemicals, production and infrastructure more effectively.
“We are therefore delighted to announce the development towards this with the engagement of two Rio De Janeiro-based agents and we look forward to pursuing first sales in the region this summer.”
IEC has been providing integrity services, including inspection and corrosion studies since 1970. Its mission is to supply and implement new solutions for corrosion problems through high standard services and products at the lowest possible cost.
Mauro Chaves Barreto, Diretor, IEC commented: “At IEC we have extensive knowledge of the most advanced technologies in the field of cathodic protection and corrosion, which positions us well to represent LUX’s CoMic™ technology in Brazil.”
Founded in 2007, Paschoalin was formed to assist foreign companies entering the Brazilian Oil and Gas Market. Its main niche is new technology aimed at improving the performance and safety of operations within the oil and gas sector.
Roberto Flosi Paschoalin, VP Business Development, Paschoalin said: “We are delighted to be assisting LUX Assure with their move into the Brazilian market. LUX will benefit from our extensive industry experience, ensuring that its OMMICA™ technology has a smooth and direct entry to market.”
LUX Assure currently delivers two key technologies, CoMic™ and OMMICA™, which together represent a revolution in monitoring and managing difficult-to-detect chemicals on-site in oil, condensates and water, specifically the thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors and corrosion inhibitors used to protect oilfield assets, on and offshore.
