UK-based flow control equipment specialist Oxford Flow has announced the creation of a US subsidiary – Oxford Flow Americas – to expand its reach in North and South America, and to offer on-the-ground commercial and technical support.
The new company will be headed up by vice-president Andy Ghiz, who is based in offices in the Park Row area of Greater Houston’s Energy Corridor.
Ghiz brings a wealth of experience in valves and engineered equipment in the oil, gas, chemical and water industries. He has previously held positions including senior vice-president of business development at Wood, and vice-president of midstream and pipeline services at URS.
His role is expected to focus on building an operation in the US state of Houston, supporting the company’s existing client base, as well as developing Oxford Flow’s long-term strategy for the Americas.
“The US is an integral part of our strategy as we look to expand across all the sectors we operate in,” commented Neil Poxon, CEO of Oxford Flow. “Houston was the ideal first location due to its position as an oil and gas hub and its number of public works companies. We are extremely pleased to have Andy join the team; his combined experience across sectors and connections will bring a valuable skill set to drive us forward.”
Ghiz added: “At Oxford Flow, innovation is a core principle, not a buzzword, which is just one of the reasons I am thrilled to join the team. No matter what sector – water or oil and gas – companies are always looking for ways to increase safety, reduce costs, improve efficiency and be more environmentally friendly. Oxford Flow’s products deliver on those promises.”
