Forum Energy Technologies, Inc., an oilfield products company serving the subsea, drilling, completion, production and infrastructure sectors of the oil and natural gas industry, has expanded its specialist syntactic foam manufacturing capabilities with the opening of a new plant in Bryan, Texas near Houston.

The new six-acre facility brings Forum’s Syntech product line closer to clients in the oil and gas industry and has the capacity to support future growth. Syntech will share the property with another of Forum’s brands, Dynacon, to create a production hub with an enhanced engineering capability and streamlined process.
Forum Syntech is one of world’s largest original equipment manufacturers in the niche ROV market for syntactic foam. The product is used to provide buoyancy modules for use in ROVs and other submersible equipment. The new plant not only allows the expansion of Forum’s ROV flotation manufacturing capabilities, but also includes the expansion into manufacturing larger installation buoyancy modules, rigging buoyancy and custom/project specific flotation modules.
Forum Energy Technologies’ products include highly engineered capital equipment as well as products that are consumed in the drilling, well construction, production and transportation of oil and natural gas. Forum is headquartered in Houston, with manufacturing and distribution facilities around the globe.
