This year, Cortec® Southeast Asia (SEA) was pleased to welcome JST Group as its new distributor serving Cortec’s customer base in Thailand. JST is Cortec® SEA’s exclusive partner for the supply of VpCI® corrosion solutions to the Thailand oil, gas, and energy sectors as well as the exclusive CorroLogic® service provider (e.g., corrosion protection for aboveground storage tanks and cased pipeline crossings) for all industries in Thailand. This will be an excellent complement to the work of Optimal, which continues to deliver Cortec® corrosion solutions primarily to the automotive and manufacturing sector in Thailand.
Reflecting on the new connection, Philip Horsford, Cortec® SEA Regional Manager, commented, “The infrastructure and total coverage of Thailand will allow Cortec® to respond to enquiries from across the country faster than ever before. JST’s highly skilled and technically competent team understand what is required to support our clients within Thailand. JST is trusted by all major operators and their reputation is unparalleled.”
Over the past 40 years, JST has developed a good working relationship with major contractors, consultants, and operators in Thailand’s oil, gas, and energy sector. Their core competencies of asset integrity and inspection align well with Cortec’s own vision.
JST Group’s COO, Derek Stamp, said, "The JST Group is pleased to announce our partnership with Cortec®, which enables us to offer cost-saving, life-extension solutions to our clients in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, power and mining industries. We see great potential for expansion into Corrosion Control Solutions in the coming years."
JST Group first learned about Cortec® about five years ago during a corrosion control presentation held in Vietnam and continued to take note when Cortec® literature appeared in NACE Materials Performance and other publications. We are glad to have them finally join our team in the fight against corrosion. Welcome, JST!
