Niche, Trident Deepwater Form Oilfield Services JV

Niche Products and Trident Deepwater Solutions (local sales agent) announce the formation of Niche Products LLC in Houston Texas.

From this point forward, Niche Products LLC will assume responsibility for all aspects of US and Brazilian operations for the Pelagic range of BOP and Subsea Control Fluids, including local manufacture, marketing, technical support and sales. Brad Jeter and Mike Mahaney (founders of Trident Deepwater Solutions) will form an integral part of the management structure for the new company and it will be very much business as usual in terms of continuity of customer contact and support.

Group Technical Director Tom McKechnie stated, "This is a proud moment in the evolution of Niche Products and we are very excited about this new venture. When the company started 9 years ago we were one small company with a vision, now we are a global multinational player with stand alone companies operating in the UK, Norway and Houston, all complimented by a global network of sales agents and warehousing facilities. Niche Products LLC, with its own local manufacturing capability and technical expertise brings a solid, stable structure to an already impressive local presence and we anticipate a bright future for the new company."
