What are the major issues facing you and the wider industry today? To what extent are you able to remain proactive within the current economic climate? Overall the Oil & Gas industry is a very stable industry. However we are getting affected just like any other company out there. Any of our competitors/customers can type the name of the product in a search engine and get in touch with no name manufacturer on the other side of the world. It’s not about quality or the service anymore, it’s about cost. However choosing just the cost has its own price. Energy sector is a very demanding and a fast pace industry. We have to work very hard to meet and exceed the quality standards of our customers. There is no room for error so 100% satisfaction 100% of the time is required. 5. How do you manage your supply chain? Do you maintain long term relationships with key partners, and network via industry associations/trade shows, for example? In addition to meeting with our suppliers annually every year we visit the biggest Oil & Gas show in Houston, TX.

We are currently in communication with the Kenya in developing their Geothermal Energy sources. 7. Do you have any personal comments or comments from other management that you would like to include within the article? Our business strength comes from our trusting and ethical dealings with our partnering suppliers. This process takes time but it is well worth the effort once the relationship is established. 8. Finally, as we are an Oil and Gas focussed publication, are there any related items of news or interest that you would like to include? Turkey is an emerging market with many oil and natural gas fields which are prime for exploration, we are here to support at every step of the way to those who are in search of a serious partner in the area.
