EM&I Group has added to its portfolio with the creation of new company EM&I Asset Integrity Services (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The subsidiary has been established as a result of the growth of EM&I’s business in the region.

EM&I Group CFO Alexander Constantinis said: "We have provided services for the oil and gas industry in the area for over 20 years but have seen significant growth in the requirement for our services in Malaysia over the last few years and took the decision to establish a permanent presence in Malaysia. We are a global operator but ensure we have strategically located local operations to enable us to best serve the needs of our clients. Our new company will establish a strong base for us in the South East Asian peninsula."

EM&I has seen an increase in demand for its services in the region. In particular, floating production unit (FPU) operators and drillship operators are requesting EM&I’s ODIN™ proprietary technology for under water inspection in Lieu of dry-dock (UWILD).
