ACE Winches has signed an agreement with Newfoundland Offshore Services (NOSO) that will see the Canadian organization act as an agent and distributor for ACE Winches, one of the global leaders in the design, manufacture and hire of hydraulic winches and marine deck machinery, serving the offshore oil and gas markets.
As the transatlantic ties were sealed at Offshore Europe 2011, CEO of ACE Winches, Alfie Cheyne, commented: “We are delighted to be working closely with NOSO. With their experience, resources, complementary portfolio and on-the-ground representation in Canada geared towards strengthening ACE Winches’ presence in the region, we now have a dedicated focus on bringing our products and services to the Canadian market.
“Whether designing and manufacturing bespoke products for clients, developing new technology, or providing winches and deck machinery on hire from our extensive range of equipment in our Hire Fleet, this agreement with NOSO will assist ACE Winches in its continued success.”
ACE Winches also has representation in China through its agents, Powertech (China). Signed earlier this year, the co-operation agreement with Powertech will enable the promotion of ACE Winches’ products and services in the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific market and will allow for penetration of the Chinese market, in particular.
