Diversification: a Strong Asset

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 17:31

Q: What prompted ESEASA to become a contractor in the offshore segment?

A: ESEASA Construcciones has operated in Mexico for over 40 years. The company has always worked in the offshore segment as a subcontractor, providing engineering services as well as machinery for the construction of marine infrastructure. In 2014, we decided to take a further step and became contractors and developers. That same year, the oil and gas industry experienced a major recession. Nevertheless, our company’s development remained constant as we evolved from being a service provider to become the contractor of choice for larger clients, including PEMEX. To construct marine platforms, we have imported cuttingedge technologies, such as robotic welding, submerged arc welding and the latest generation of pantographs. 

Q: What competitive advantages set the company’s offer apart from alternatives in the market?

A: We are a one-stop-shop because all our services are available at the port facility. This includes logistics, inventory management, manufacturing of marine platforms, inland transportation, hoisting crane equipment, vessel docking and warehouse storage services. Before we started offering our integral services two years ago, the one-stop-shop concept did not exist in Mexico. The company was able to maintain its operations during the industry recession because we implemented this diversification strategy. We unload and load turbine components, over-sized equipment and offer various services so that every requirement of any vessel can be assisted by our port facility. As a result, we have been able to continue investing in our terminals and become the first player in the market to offer these types of services.
