The facility will also provide comprehensive meeting and training space.
Doug Sangster, Hydratight Commercial Leader for Australia and New Zealand, said: “We have seen impressive growth in our operations in Australasia, which caused us to outgrow our existing Kewdale facility.
“Perth is an area of significant importance and this move to a purpose built facility in Jandakot marks an exciting time in the growth of the business.”
Chris Battel, General Manager from Cortland, added: “The prospect of being part of a combined facility and its proximity to other world-leading global oil & gas providers is exciting to say the least. As the Cortland business continues to diversify and grow, this facility will increase our capability to provide unmatched customer support to Cortland’s new and existing clients.”
