Flow solutions provider Fluid Components International (FCI) has established a joint venture with GAS Arabian Services Co. called Fluid Components Saudi Arabia.
The new joint venture in Saudi Arabia offers service and support for all local and regional users of FCI instrumentation.
The facility provides immediate access to FCI engineering and technical support, local spare parts inventory and supply, repair and re-calibration services, factory-certified field service personnel, client product and service training, site dispatching, and on-site installation and start-up assistance.
In addition to employing local Saudi staff highly experienced in process instrumentation, measurement, and control, the facility will accommodate expansion to add flow stands with internationally traceable reference equipment for local calibration services.
“This new operation provides localised, full-service capability to all of FCI’s customers in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Middle East,” said Dan McQueen, president at FCI.
“Our goal is to offer world class service and product support to our growing installed customer base in the region.”
FCI manufactures standard off-the-shelf and custom-engineered instruments, sensors, and assemblies.
Its products are recognised for their accuracy, repeatability and reliability in harsh operating conditions, the company says.
They are easy to install, require virtually no maintenance, and offer long service life and low lifecycle costs.
With their precision thermal dispersion technology and rugged packaging, FCI are certified to meet many demanding performance, reliability, and quality standards, including IECEx, ATEX, FM, FMc/CSA, EAC/TR CU, NEPSI, CPA, CRN, CE Mark, ISO9001, AS9100, NQA-1, QAL1, and SIL.
Industries served include oil and gas, petroleum refining, chemical manufacturing, electric power generation including nuclear and coal-fired production, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, and mining.
