Flexlife has expanded its operations in Brazil to increase its capacity across South America.
The company is targeting initial revenue of approximately £4million per year, but that is expected to ramp up by 30-60% per year within two years.
As well as investing in new office accommodation in Rio de Janeiro at Rua Assembleia, Flexlife is manufacturing its ground-breaking integrity management products locally and offering a full assembly, deployment and maintenance service by staff based in the region.
The company has a suite of game-changing products to identify breaches in flexible pipes and repair them without interruption to production, a first in the 40 year history of the Oil & Gas industry.
Flexlife Chief Executive Stuart Mitchell said, "Flexlife is experiencing a period of significant growth and our new South American operation will expand our capability to offer specialised support to clients.
"Flexlife has continued to build on its reputation for offering a full subsea integrity and project management package, assisting clients to cost-effectively manage all of their subsea assets and infrastructure. We have built up high levels of expertise in deepwater markets and have a proven track record of providing a service that helps operators reduce risk in a cost-effective manner."
Leonardo Dias, Executive Manager Brazil, said, "Our aim is to establish ourselves in Brazil and also target work in Venezuela. We have recruited a team of engineering, technical and support staff who are all highly experienced in the Brazilian Oil & Gas market."
As part of a continuing global growth strategy Flexlife recently appointed Stephen Burgdorf as Vice President of Business Development for North America.
Based in Houston, Texas, he will focus on promoting Flexlife's award-winning offshore project and integrity management services to operators in the region.
A Newcastle base has also been opened in the last few months and the plans are in place to open an additional base in Angola.
