Denmark's MacArtney Underwater Technology Group announced a representative agreement with the Mexican ROV and subsea service company, Meyah Ich Ha, which is set to administer the promotion and sales of MacArtney systems and products within the Mexican part of the GOM region.
Work under water
The name Meyah Ich Ha originates from Mayan culture and means "work under water" - and based out of Veracruz on the Gulf of Mexico coast, Meyah Ich Ha provides ROV services, ROV pilot training and counselling of the highest quality. The projects undertaken by Meyah Ich Ha are primarily based on subsea inspection and surveying, maintenance and repair of underwater infrastructure, drilling support, electric power plant and nuclear environment tasks, civil infrastructure, research, rescue, salvage, dive support, fish farms, water tanks, contaminated water and dams.
Joining forces to achieve growth
Through providing key underwater technology segments, contacts, local knowledge and strategic locations, the appointment of Meyah Ich Ha as MacArtney representative, marks a significant strengthening of MacArtney's presence in offshore Mexico.
In turn, Meyah Ich Ha will gain access to the entire portfolio of globally established MacArtney systems and products, including the SubConn connector range which is in high demand across Mexican marine industries. In further support of the new setup, all clients located in Mexican west coast region will still have access to full support from the local MacArtney operations in San Diego, California.
"MacArtney is looking forward to a long-term business relationship based on mutual growth and achievement," says MacArtney Inc. President Lars Hansen. "The Mexican GOM region is a real offshore growth market characterized by massive future international investment - and with several of our clients increasing their operations in Mexico in these years, it is a natural step for MacArtney to build a solid foundation from which we can offer the local support that we are fully committed to. Within this context, I see Meyah Ich Ha as a young and ambitious company, yet a strong and serious partner, who's way of doing things is very well in line with how MacArtney thinks and operates."
"At Meyah Ich Ha, we are extremely grateful to get the representation of MacArtney in the Mexican region of Gulf of Mexico," says CEO Oscar Mayo. "Our initial aim will be to present MacArtney products and solutions to the Mexican offshore energy industry and scientific research institutions to whom we know they will be very useful. We are committed to raising awareness of MacArtney and will strive to join the forces of our two companies to offer unequalled value to Mexican marine clients, operators and applications."
