Subsea Technology & Rentals (STR) are delighted to announce the launch of its Americas Entity ‘Subsea Technology & Rentals Inc.’ based in Houston, Texas.

This strategic expansion is being driven by STR’s Board of Directors, following the recent success of our International expansions in Australia and Singapore. Scott Johnstone, Group Managing Director said, "We are delighted to announce the launch of STR in the Americas which will enable STR to deliver its full suite of technology and support services locally. This expansion allows STR to service existing customers in the region with the expertise, and range of services they have grown to expect, but also allows us to develop relations with new customers. This firmly positions STR as a global leader in the provision of subsea technology”.

To lead the expansion, STR have appointed Ka Henney-Cant as Vice President for the region. Scott Johnstone, Group Managing Director, said, "Ka has been a key member of the STR management team since 2017 and has orchestrated our International Expansions into Australia and Singapore. The experience and knowledge Ka has gained commercially, legally, and technically in developing and exporting our UK business into new regions will set strong foundations for STR’s success in the Americas”.

To support operations in the region, STR welcomes Mike Knight as VP of Operations, and Alex Iglesias as Technical Operations Supervisor. Both Mike and Alex have been instrumental in establishing the business in its early stages on the ground in Houston, while the overseas management team have unfortunately been unable to travel. Their hard work and dedication to STR’s existing customers and ongoing projects have helped to set the groundwork for what will become a significant operating region for STR.

Ka Henney-Cant said "Today is a great day for everyone at STR, as we share the news of our expansion. While 2020 has been challenging, I am very proud of everyone at STR who have supported our growth into a new region, a move which epitomises our key values to bring commitment and responsive solutions to our customers”.
