JFO increases product portfolio as it targets new markets
James Fisher Offshore (JFO) extends its relationship with one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial equipment as it targets new opportunities within the energy and manufacturing industries.
Already one of the UK’s largest providers of Ingersoll Rand winches and hoists, JFO recently extended this distributorship to include tools as it looks to increase its integrated offering to both its current and prospective clients.
The increase in product portfolio will see James Fisher Offshore house the largest stock of Ingersoll Rand air powered tools in the UK, with a range of cordless tools, service tools, and industrial tools being made available for sale.
The move has also seen JFO become an OEM certified service centre for the range of tools and it is now also equipped to carry out HAVS (hand and arm vibration) testing.
Graeme Brand, air products manager at James Fisher Offshore, is delighted with the extension of the relationship with Ingersoll Rand and is looking forward to the prospect of potentially entering into new sectors as a result, commenting:
“This extension of the current working relationship with Ingersoll Rand gives James Fisher Offshore, and in particular its pneumatic department, a brand new product range to add to its current portfolio. It complements our offering to our existing customer base but it also has the potential to open up new opportunities in markets outside of oil and gas.
“It is developments like this that will allow James Fisher Offshore to continue to provide a fully integrated service to current and prospective clients and it is pleasing to be in a position to increase our offering. It’s an incredibly positive step for the company as a whole.”
Brian Norton, business sales manager at Ingersoll Rand, said:
“Ingersoll Rand is delighted that James Fisher Offshore is extending its Ingersoll Rand product offering into power tools.
“We believe that Fisher Offshore will become a leading and valued partner for our power tools division by offering a complete solution, from service to HAVS and stock availability. By having Fisher Offshore as an additional partner, we are confident that users of our products will have increased access and a better understanding of the Ingersoll Rand portfolio that’s available to them.”
