Forum Energy Technologies has expanded its syntactic foam manufacturing capabilities with the opening of a new plant near Houston.
The six-acre facility in Bryan, Texas, brings Forum’s Syntech product line closer to clients in the oil and gas industry.
Syntech will share the property with another of Forum’s brands, Dynacon, to create a production hub, the company informed.
Thomas Mittner, product line manager – Syntech, said: “Our Syntech brand is viewed as the leader in the field of buoyancy and has a long history in providing syntactic foam developed specifically for use with remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Being closer to our clients provides them with the opportunity to visit our site and view products. We will be working more closely with the team at Dynacon and will leverage their engineering and manufacturing expertise.”
Forum Syntech is used to provide buoyancy modules for use in ROVs and other submersible equipment.
