SMEs show mettle in tough environment

March 16, 2018

I need  mettle. And an inspiring article indeed.

Dateline 2018-01-29, NST:

Local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from the oil and gas services and equipment (OGSE) industry are increasingly catching up in a playing field dominated by the major players of the industry, especially multinational companies (MNC) and larger scale players.

This is the case of four local companies, NGLTech Sdn Bhd and ProEight Technology Sdn Bhd, MIT Technologies Sdn Bhd and MTC Engineering Sdn Bhd, all showing promising value add in par with bigger players, both domestic and international.

NGLTech, a research and development (R&D) and process technology solutions provider, has successfully implemented and commercialised most of its 12 patented and patent pending home-grown technologies since its incorporation in 2009.

Inspirational stories, for these tough times in the O&G sector.

Since then, two very enterprising Malaysian firms from my native oil and gas sector have come forward to share their experiences.

ProEight started as an engineering consultancy. After thoroughly understanding their position in the market and identifying gaps, the firm developed their own products. Today, their portfolio of mechanical seals and pumps is not only one of the best in class, their after sales service in the region is unparalleled.

Kudos to a local company.

THE global oil and gas industry is dominated by a number of well-established companies who supply the technology and equipment for all downstream and upstream activities. To break into this well-established group of international vendors and suppliers, you must be pretty exceptional.

One Malaysian company is up to the challenge.

ProEight Offshore Engineering Sdn Bhd is South-East Asia’s only maker of mechanical seals for the oil and gas industry. These seals are fitted to pumps and compressors to prevent leakages.

Globally, the demand for mechanical seals is met by a small number of well-established brands. But ProEight, a relatively young Malaysian company which started designing its mechanical seals in 2006, has set its sights on joining this elite group of manufacturers. It claims its seals are better and cheaper.
