CARY, N.C.—Lord Corp. has opened a new office near Houston to support its customers in the Midwest and Southwest part of the U.S.
The office, located in Spring, Texas, primarily will aid customers in energy related sectors, including downhole drilling.
Gregg Cune, global business development manager for downhole tool systems, will serve as office manager. He will head a team to identify new opportunities to develop new parts and products for the downhole segment, the firm said.
Those products will be made available to customers across the globe, it said.
The new office “provides the company with the opportunity to become more accessible to our oil and gas clients,” according to Jonathan Owens, director of Lord's oil and gas industry group.
“The location is key and will enable Lord to provide them with the service and value Lord is known for,” he said.
