MTL Acquires Ocean Technical Systems
OTS has a strong position of delivering SCADA solutions for the automation of berthing, loading and unloading of oil tankers and oil production vessels, floating production units (FPSOs), unmanned wellhead production platforms and the monitoring of oil and gas pipelines. It is expected that the OTS business will be able to leverage MTLs sales channels and OEM relationships to significantly extend its international customer base. It will also benefit by using MTLs purchasing power and electronic circuit board manufacturing capabilities to improve its competitiveness.
Ocean Technical Systems is another excellent acquisition for MTL, said Graeme Philp, MTLs Chief Executive. Over the last few years it has developed an innovative and highly competitive range of SCADA and navigation products. By giving OTS access to its international sales team, MTL will help to accelerate the expansion of its international reach.
MTL Incorporated is the leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic devices for the protection of instrumentation located in hazardous areas, as well as rugged measurement and control instrumentation for harsh and hazardous process applications and a complete surge protection offering for all plant systems including instrumentation, AC power and communications networks.
