Enhances sales and marketing services for oil and gas applications in the region

PFS Technologies, a global supplier of flow measurement technologies and fire suppression systems, today announces the opening of its Dubai headquarters and the appointment of key management.

PFS Technologies will offer customers throughout the Middle East and Africa the world’s most accurate and field proven oil and gas flow meters and monitors, as well as advanced compressed air foam (CAF) fire suppression solutions. Supported by a knowledgeable team with decades of experience in their respective technologies, PFS Technologies will be able to combine applications expertise, deep technological knowledge, and expedient delivery of product to meet the high expectations and demands of its customers.

“PFS Technologies was formed to fulfill a recognized need in the Middle East for more accurate, highly reliable, and third-party validated technologies required by the region’s oil and gas producers,” stated Bruce Briggs, President of PFS Technologies. “The competitive global market for oil and gas is forcing our customers to pay more attention to the efficiency of their resource recovery efforts from the drill site to the point of custody transfer. At the same time, they are seeking fail-proof systems to protect their facilities and workers from the ever-present danger of fire at these facilities.”
