Oil Patch Bits: Volant appoints GM for new Houston area facility
Volant said it is pleased to announce that Aaron Sinnott has agreed to join its Houston-based business Volant Oil Tools US as its general manager.
Sinnott previously worked for Weatherford with 25 years of experience in tubular running services and well integrity, ranging from field operations to global oversight. His deep understanding of well construction and well integrity in combination with his drive to build teams and envision solutions to market needs will directly benefit Volantís U.S. customers and, by association, its global customer base.
Volant has been providing products and services into the U.S. since the early 2000s and is now increasing its operations and customer support capabilities by opening a location in the community of Katy, Texas. The facility will be 20,040 square feet, with 16,425 square feet dedicated to shop and warehouse activities. Operating in Katy will provide closer access to spare parts and consumables, an added training location for operation and maintenance of Volant tools, tool rental services, convenient tool maintenance and refurbishment, torque ring installation and centralizer crimping and swaging services.
Volantís facility is expected to open in late summer and Sinnott is on board to build its Houston team preparing to deliver excellence to current and new customers.
