Read about SEA CON®’s New Encapsulating and Molding Facility in Oil & Gas Technology Magazine and Subsea & Offshore Service Magazine
As SEACON continue their growth they are also continuing to find new ways to better serve their expanding market. A prime example of this is SEACON’s new Encapsulating & Molding facility in the West Houston area, opening to develop even greater levels of support both to the Gulf Coast region and internationally.
“There is clear evidence that the market is growing” says SEACON’s Marketing Manager Melanie Harrison. “The demand on suppliers to increase manufacturing, design, support and customer service also grows in line with this upturn. This new facility is just one of a number of steps we will be taking to achieve our mission”.
Concurrent to this growth in demand is the need for suppliers to exhibit great flexibility and the ability to react quickly to customers needs both planned and unforeseen, while still maintaining high levels of quality and innovation. Part of this solution is seen by SEACON to include holding increased stock of most popular connectors to help fill an increasing need for short order custom assemblies. SEACON is passionate about the important issue of ensuring the needs of their clients are dealt with quickly and efficiently and the new installation will certainly enable them to meet growing needs and higher expectations.
SEACON currently has five main production facilities geared to the delivery of a mass production of subsea connectors. At times this can make it difficult to provide customers with short order custom assemblies. The new work shop will specialize in these short order needs of SEACON clients, current and future.
The workshop will allow SEACON to carry more stock of their most popular connectors to mainly benefit their existing customers who don’t necessarily need a molded assembly. Some of the product lines will include the Rubber Molded, WET-CON, ALL-WET and 55/66 series assemblies. Stocks of these are already held, but this new facility will see these stock levels increase.

Craig Newell, Vice President of Sales & Corporate Business Development said “Consistency throughout the business is paramount to our success and the launch of a new Encapsulation and Molding Workshop is just another example of our commitment to over deliver on the promise and work with an overt focus on the changing needs of our clients.”
