MATCOR, Inc., the full-service provider of proprietary cathodic protection products, systems, and corrosion engineering solutions recently announced that the company has appointed SGB Scaffolding and Industrial Services Private Limited (SGB India) as its distributor in India. SGB will take over the MATCOR operations in India. Both MATCOR and SGB India are Brand Energy and Infrastructure Services (BEIS) companies.
SGB India, headquartered in Hyderabad, India, provides industrial services and construction related solutions. This move to incorporate MATCOR’s proprietary cathodic protection and AC mitigation solutions enables SGB India to deliver a broader range of services and solutions to customers throughout India.
Shailesh Javia will lead operations in relation to cathodic protection products, systems, and corrosion engineering solutions out of SGB’s office in Ahmedabad, India. The office is located at 106, Sakar – V, Behind Natraj Cinema, Opp. H.K. College, Ashram Road, Ahmedabad – 380009, Gujarat, India and staff can be reached by phone at +91 (0)79 26588551 or email at email@example.com.
“With the significant infrastructure development expected in India, local operators will benefit greatly from MATCOR’s turnkey corrosion prevention solutions and SGB’s industrial and construction solutions,” said Kevin Pitts, President of MATCOR.
India is home to many major companies in the oil and gas, chemical, power, water and other infrastructure industries. These companies operate assets such as pipelines, plant piping, offshore structures and storage tanks that require the corrosion prevention products and services provided by MATCOR. In addition, India has a growing network of pipelines laid in overhead electrical right-of-way corridors. Pipelines along these corridors experience AC interference as great as 50-75 VAC, which can cause corrosion and a hazardous environment for workers and the public.
SGB India will provide operators in India with full array of cathodic protection and corrosion engineering services, in addition to a full range of AC mitigation products and services to combat pipeline AC interference.
