Proserv acquires process and control equipment specialist

Proserv, a drilling and production control specialist, has acquired Houston-based Total Instrumentation & Controls (TIC).

The acquisition of TIC, which specialises in advanced process and control equipment, and has a second manufacturing facility in Lafayette, is said to increase Proserv’s head count by around 300 people to more than 1,600.

TIC provides a range of installation and maintenance services to equipment manufacturing, drilling, production and pipeline companies.

Specialising in blow-out prevention stacking and installation services for offshore applications, the company manufactures drilling and production control systems and supplies ancillary subsea components such as remote terminal units and topside umbilical termination units.
