Suretank, a global leader in the supply of DNV certified cargo carrying units to the offshore oil and gas industry, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a formal agreement with long-term Dutch partner Stainless Equipment Works (SEW) launching the department Suretank Netherlands.

Suretank Netherlands will act as an agent for Suretank providing valuable engineering and sales support to further strengthen Suretank's market share of the Dutch offshore industry.

The relationship between SEW and Suretank began in 2000 when SEW began designing and manufacturing UN portable tanks, transport containers and customised frames for the offshore industry. Since then the two companies have worked in partnership on various new design projects, including the development of a new elliptical UN portable tank.

Bart Schenk, general manager at SEW said; "This is an exciting development for SEW and we are proud to represent Suretank who are one of the leading manufacturers of offshore transport containers. Both companies are known for their innovative spirit. We have a successful track record of working together, pooling our resources and expertise. The team responsible for Suretank in the Netherlands is highly skilled and looking forward to this exciting new chapter within Suretank Netherlands."

Chris Gorman, regional sales manager for the UK, Norway, Holland and Denmark added; "We are delighted to be working closely with SEW. With their experience, resources, complementary portfolio and on-the-ground representation in Holland geared towards strengthening Suretank's presence in the region, we now have a dedicated focus on bringing our products and services to the Dutch offshore market. We have found a European partner that complements our own capabilities and has the same approach to quality and customer service."

Suretank is the world’s largest manufacturer of cargo-carrying units for the offshore oil and gas industry and all of its products are produced to DNV Certification as standard.
