DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

BOC has opened its new K1.2m (ap­prox. NZD600K) Gas & Gear fa­cil­ity in Lae, Pa­pua New Guinea at an of­fi­cial cer­e­mony at­tended by lo­cal dig­ni­taries, cus­tomers and staff.

John Evans, BOC South Pa­cific Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, said the new Gas & Gear will strengthen BOC’s ser­vice to its cus­tomers across the min­ing, oil and gas, in­dus­trial, health, re­frig­er­a­tion and agri­cul­ture in­dus­tries – with mod­ern gas dock op­er­a­tions pur­pose-built for the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 50- year an­niver­sary in Lae this year, the Gases and en­gi­neer­ing com­pany has a strong pres­ence in the re­gion with other sites that in­clude its na­tional head of­fice, oxy­gen filling and stor­age fa­cil­i­ties, and a cylin­der test­ing shop.

BOC is the lead­ing gases and en­gi­neer­ing com­pany in Pa­pua New Guinea, with op­er­a­tions in Lae, Port Moresby and Gerehu. The or­gan­i­sa­tion em­ploys more than 100 peo­ple na­tion­ally and has 16 dis­trib­u­tor agents.
