Our ‘Week in the Life’ this month focuses on our Global Buoyancy Team. The team meets 3 times a year alternating locations between our Houston, TX and Skelmersdale, UK facilities. Both facilities are experts in manufacturing buoyancy solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry.
The Global Buoyancy Team is made up of technical specialists and executive managers from the UK and US. Their goal is to collaborate on product and material developments for all buoyancy applications globally.
In this photo, the team is hosting an internal preparation meeting to define the agenda, which projects to present and technical milestones achieved for their next meeting.
