Singapore-headquartered KOP Surface Products, which employs 450 people, is a provider of wellheads, surface trees, valves, actuators and aftermarket services for the oil and gas industry. The company has a manufacturing plant in Batam, Indonesia, and a network of sales and service offices in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia and India.

“Since opening the first wellhead manufacturing facility in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone a short while ago, we have continued to expand our global reach by supporting our customers, no matter where the job takes them,” said Paul Coppinger, Weir Oil & Gas president. “Our ability to manufacture products nearby is only part of the equation. We must continue to support customers through the service and products we provide. Acquiring KOP underlines that commitment and strengthens our promise to operators in this vital region.”

“From a technology, service and talent standpoint, this is an excellent fit and we look forward to our future together as a combined organization,” said Gordon Cameron, chief executive of KOP Surface Products.

Cameron will continue to serve as president of KOP Surface Products and report into Coppinger.
