Patriot Mechanical Handling Awarded New Crane Order by PEMEX

Patriot Mechanical Handling says that it has been awarded a new contract valued at USD $575,000 from Dragados Offshore USA, for delivery to PEMEX.

The order calls for Patriot to supply one crane, which is to be fitted on the PEMEX Offshore Platform PB-KU-A1.

Paul Findlay, President and CEO, commented, "This is the second order in two months that we have secured for delivery to PEMEX. We shall deliver the equipment early in 2006." He added, "We commented previously that our first PEMEX order should lay the foundation for future orders; that statement has now come to fruition. We expect to continue securing orders from Mexico and throughout Latin America, Asia and also domestically as we continue our aggressive international expansion."
