Axiom’s Work Advances To National Competition
HOUSTON–Axiom reports it has won four regional ADDY® awards from the American Advertising Federation for its work on behalf of Cameron and Art League Houston. The agency points out it won three awards–a gold and two silvers–for “Discover Cameron,” an interactive presentation it produced with Cameron’s marketing team. The agency adds it won a silver ADDY for a catalog featuring the artwork of Mary McCleary, Art League Houston’s 2011 artist of the year. Both works advanced to the national competition–the world’s largest advertising competition–whose winners were to be announced on June 6. Axiom says its entries in the AAF competition have qualified for nationals in seven of the past eight years. Ì

Trelleborg Boosts Elasticity Of Thermal Insulation Line
HOUSTON–Trelleborg Offshore has developed the next generation of its Vikotherm subsea thermal insulation material, which the company reports has been installed successfully throughout the subsea oil and gas industry for 20 years. “The formation of hydrate plugs and wax buildup is a real risk during operation shutdowns,” observes Grethe Hartviksen, the company’s innovation and technology manager. “Vikotherm II provides a practically incompressible, seawater resistant, impact resistant solution that has very good thermal insulation properties and also provides maximum corrosion protection, ensuring optimal flow assurance. “Not only is it designed to last the life of the subsea project (20 to 40 years), it also is maintenance free and will normally never be replaced,” he adds. Hartviksen says Vikotherm II has a k-value of 0.13 watts per meter kelvin, can be used in waters as deep as 9,840 feet, and can withstand liquid temperatures as hot as 311 degrees F and external temperatures as cold as minus 31 degrees F.

Allmand To Expand Plant To Meet Growing Demand
HOLDREGE, NE.–Allmand Bros Inc., a manufacturer of portable light towers, job-site heaters, trailer-mounted arrow boards and light stands, has unveiled plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Holdrege. According to Allmand, the $3 million expansion will add 40,000 square feet to the present building and 17 acres for parking and storage. The company says the addition will house an enlarged fabrication area where it will add a higherspeed laser cutter and a new press brake to its existing laser, press brake and plasma cutter. Company president Matt Allmand says growing customer demand prompted the expansion. “This expansion will allow us to not only increase production, but also to hopefully reduce the lead time for our products from 16-17 weeks to a more manageable four weeks or so,” he predicts. Allmand Bros adds that the work now being done by outside metal fabricators can be brought in house, giving the company greater control over the scheduling and quality of the manufactured components. For information, contact Allmand Bros Inc. at 800-562-1373 or visit www.allmand.com. Ì

Vikotherm II subsea thermal insulation material combines excellent insulation and corrosion protection with improved elasticity, Trelleborg says. The company adds that the material allows for mobile production and can be applied on site.

Tank Maker Sells Itself To Better Serve Bakken
GRAFTON, N.D.–Lean Technologies has agreed to sell itself to Diverse Energy Systems LLC and become the primary fabrication facility for the parent company’s initiatives in the Bakken, Diverse reports. “We are very excited about this acquisition,” says Diverse Chief Executive Officer Chet Erwin. “Lean has a great management team and some very skilled craftsmen. They fit perfectly in our vision to develop an energy services company that has a prominent role in the shale plays across North America, providing turnkey systems from the wellhead to the pipeline.” To enhance Lean’s operations, Erwin says Diverse has purchased equipment that will speed the manufacturing process. He points out that Diverse’s core product is 400-barrel tanks. “To meet the demand for product storage in the Bakken, we are expanding the facilities in Grafton,” reports Duane Jonasson, the company’s general manager of manufacturing. “We have 70,000 square feet now and will be building more fabrication floor space and putting on more craftsmen to get the job done.” In addition to tanks, Diverse says it builds or provides containment systems, grade bands, heat tracing, jet pumps, units, valves, walkways and stairs. For information, contact Diverse Energy Systems at 701-352-9620 or visit www.des-co.com. Ì
