Sabic Selects Hydratight for Controlled Bolting & OSM Services

Hydratight Saudi Arabia has secured a new five-year contract to provide the bulk of on-site machining and bolting services to Sabic Services Ltd, the service arm of the Saudi Basic Industries Company, and its affiliates throughout the region.

Hydratight had been Sabic's largest & preferred controlled bolting & OSM provider for four years and strongly contested its position to retain and extend this major contract. This included key presentations to key SSL management -- many of whom were new to Sabic and not fully aware of Hydratight's existing track record.

"We pointed out how much the company has grown in the region in the last couple of years and how much we have invested here, to prove our commitment," explained senior sales engineer Ganesan Sriram.

"We focused particularly on our OSM capability, which frankly is second to none. Sabic recognized our expertise and the jobs we were already doing: that is what won us the new term."
