Schilling Robotics expands into Asia, Brazil

March 11, 2011 |

Davis-based Schilling Robotics LLC, experts in subsea systems, has formally opened a new support center in Singapore and has begun construction of another support center in Brazil that will open in April.

This international expansion of Schilling’s product support services into key offshore oil and gas regions will provide customers with the remotely operated vehicle industry’s most comprehensive support available on a global basis, a news release said.

The support centers in both Singapore and Brazil will be in partnership with FMC Technologies and will be housed in FMC facilities. The support centers will be staffed by comprehensive teams of local personnel who have all been trained by Schilling. The level of service will be comparable to Schilling’s existing Gulf of Mexico and North Sea regional offices, offering dedicated, local personnel, spares inventory, product repairs and technical training. Each support facility will carry approximately $1 million of spare parts inventory to ensure efficient service to customers.

“These expansions demonstrate Schilling Robotics’ commitment to global support for our customers,” said Tyler Schilling, CEO of Schilling Robotics, in a news release. “Our partnership with FMC Technologies has enabled us to expand rapidly into regions that require a comprehensive local presence, and provide our customers with the best support available in this industry.”

The Singapore facility already has started taking customer orders and will be providing technical support, including onsite repair of all Schilling manipulator systems. The support facility in Macaé, Brazil, will be a custom-designed 3,000-square-foot building, and local employees are being trained to staff this facility when it formally opens in the second quarter of 2011.

Schilling Robotics is a global, deep-ocean robotics company founded in 1985. In 2008, FMC Technologies Inc. acquired a 45 percent interest in Schilling. FMC Technologies Inc. is a global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry. FMC Technologies designs, manufactures and services technologically sophisticated systems and products, such as subsea production and processing systems, surface wellhead systems, high pressure fluid control equipment, measurement solutions, and marine loading systems for the oil and gas industry.
