“The significant investment made at Midland follows on from our major upgrade in Clinton, Oklahoma announced earlier this year,” said John Dunne, Global Head of Oil & Mining Services, Clariant. “It is further testament to Clariant’s strengthened commitment to grow with our customers located in the Permian and Mid-Con regions, which are both strategically important in the US market.”
“Clariant’s newly enhanced Midland facility, with its advanced laboratory capabilities and logistics service enhancements are reflective of the importance Clariant attaches to the Permian Basin and North American oil production,” commented Pete Schoemann, Head of Oil Services North America. “Precision in analysis, simplification in logistics, reduction in transportation time and mitigation of bottlenecks – all supplied locally - are fundamental to allow us to grow alongside our customers in the Permian region,” he added.
“The upgraded facility in Midland, Texas is a bright example of Clariant’s ongoing commitment and strategic focus on innovation through R&D,” said Deepak Parikh, President, Region North America. “We are excited that the company can continue to attract highly-skilled, specialized employees with the addition of more labs such as these.”
