Tyco Flow Control Continues Expansion with Third Oil and Gas Project Management Center

Houston, October 26, 2011 – Matching pace with the continued growth of its oil and gas customers, Tyco Flow Control, a unit of Tyco International, has opened a new Project Management Center and expanded operations at its oil and gas headquarters in Houston, Texas.

The Houston Project Management Center will work in coordination with two existing centers in the United Kingdom and Singapore, providing customers with a single point of contact from Tyco Flow Control for the duration of their projects. This provides convenience, efficiency and consistency to the customer and ensures that a team of experts oversees and coordinates each project from beginning to end. 

"The oil and gas industry is a fast-paced, global industry, with numerous activities taking place around the world simultaneously,” said Bryant Holt, manager of the Houston Project Center. "Our customers reflect that, and with our Project Management Centers, we can expand our capabilities to offer seamless, synchronized worldwide solutions. Customers may want technical support in Houston, to have a project financed in Europe and then installed in Asia. We can coordinate all of those aspects and provide a single, consistent point of contact for our customer through the entire process.”

The Houston Project Management Center’s work begins at the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) stage, developing engineering and frame agreements, and handling the commercial, technical and legal issues that can arise. Projects can take years to reach completion and all stages of a project have strict timelines and requirements. The Center can ensure all deliverables for each stage of a project are completed on time. The Center also provides the right product and technical information and documentation to the customer, then confirms the products are properly assembled, tested and shipped.

This expansion allows Tyco Flow Control to increase its engineering, project management and technical talent, while bringing many members of its dedicated oil and gas projects team into one location in the heart of the oil and gas industry. This enables Tyco Flow Control to provide customers a wider range of capabilities, services and technical support.

"Bringing more employees into one location through the expansion of our oil and gas headquarters allows us to more seamlessly handle our customers’ most complex challenges and projects,” said Sheri Roberts-Updike, vice president and general manager of Tyco Flow Control’s global oil and gas business. "This growth highlights our commitment to the industry and the strategic importance of our customers in this business. Through our broad product portfolio, service capabilities and global reach, we will continue to support our customers and earn their business as the preferred flow solution provider.”
