The 2016 Global Petroleum Show (GPS), one of the world’s largest energy events, provided yet another opportunity for industry players to come together and showcase the latest innovations in oil and gas. The atmosphere was electric, with over 18,700 companies represented from over 92 countries worldwide. As industry leaders, we at Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies, were delighted to showcase an exhibit in Calgary, Canada at the tradeshow.
GPS 2016 certainly provided everyone with a lot of great insights about the future of the energy sector. With 170 professional presentations spanning over the 3-day event, there was never a dull moment with plenty to learn and much to see. The speakers included some of the best minds in the business. They tackled current issues and future prospects, providing valuable information for eager listeners. There were also 17 networking sessions that served to create more meaningful connections among the delegates and attendees. We took full advantage of the opportunities afforded to meet new and existing customers, and to make potentially long-term connections with other industry leaders.
The heart of the event was the array of exhibits and displays. Our center booth for Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies represented a strong presence. As the global leader in pipe and thread protection solutions for the oil and gas, mining, and water well drilling industries, we remain committed to supporting our customers with high quality pipe protection products, and leading the market in customer service. Our participation as an exhibitor at the 2016 Global Petroleum Show is another demonstration of our commitment to the oil and gas industry, as well as to the valued customers we serve.
In 2015, we made a major commitment to our Canadian customer base with the opening of a new 23,000 sqft. warehouse and distribution center located in Leduc, Alberta. This facility combines both the Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies and Essentra Components product offerings into a single operation. This “One Essentra” center is meant to better service our Canadian customers.
Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies will continue to provide a market-leading product range, along with superior service levels that offer our customers the greatest value on their investments. Our showcase of thread protectors, pipe and flange protection, tector guards, and clamps are just a few items that remain popular offerings to customers worldwide.
