LEWA Launches Own Subsidiary in Norway
The company LEWA ranks among the leading solution providers worldwide for liquid metering in the process industry (oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical), especially where critical conditions are concerned. There are hardly any alternatives on the market to LEWA’s hermetically diaphragm pumps and metering systems for applications involving critical processes and requiring a high degree of safety. LEWA is a renowned specialist in metering systems and solutions provider even in Norway thanks to the use of its pumps in several local projects. A list of clients that includes ‘Snøhvit’ (CO2 reinjection) and FPSO Skarv Idun (methanol injection) together with the YME re-development project(chemical injection) have strengthened LEWA’s presence.
To meet the demands of its continued growth (currently €145 million in revenue, 650 staff worldwide, 16 subsidiaries, representatives in over 60 countries), LEWA is expanding its international presence and keeping in line with this trend, has launched the Norwegian subsidiary LEWA AS.
Arne Hauge will take on the role of managing director at LEWA AS based in Sandnes. He brings along many years of experience engineering and managing projects for operators in Norway’s oil and gas industry. In 2001, he formed the company Chemical Injection Equipment (CIE) which specializes in products, systems and solutions for the oil and gas market. In 2005, CIE became a Norwegian representative for LEWA. After six successful years, Arne Hauge sold his company.
LEWA AS provides its customers in the oil and gas and process industry with services and advice particularly in the areas of engineering, after sales, service and training, in addition to its range of metering pumps and metering systems. This also includes taking on the planning for plant modernization and renting of test equipment and injection systems for temporary use.
Arne Hauge explains, “As far as my own experience goes, larger suppliers that have evolved from consolidations are faced with the difficult challenge of truly offering customer-oriented solutions. We may not be a very large team, but we make up for that fact with our high level of flexibility. Our customers can count on quick, competent and reliable service.”
LEWA AS is accepting applications for project engineers, service technicians and sales associates through to the end of 2008.
