John Walker, director, J2 Subsea, said, “J2 Subsea has a strong reputation in the subsea marketplace for offering top quality service and fast response times. We already operate from other Seatronics facilities, and the new Houston location supports our ultimate aim of offering everything on the ROV globally. Our goal is to give customers support wherever they need it, and establishing this facility in Houston is in direct response to customer demands.
“The J2 Subsea Tool Changer and the J2 Subsea iVP Control System are examples of innovative products that will now be available from our Houston facility. By investing in product research and development, we continue to bring cost-effective solutions such as these to the marketplace. Innovation is a vital part of J2 Subsea’s business, and the new Houston tooling facility will showcase our full suite of equipment.”
