A large oilfield manufacturer needed to build a repair facility for surface oilfield equipment in a remote location in the Middle East, and wanted a single supplier to outfit the entire facility with all necessary tools. Due to the remoteness of the facility and the lack of nearby parts and a CNC-trained labor pool, they required that all of the machine tools be new (for reliability) and conventional (to take advantage of available labor). Installation, training and servicing were also part of the requirements. The challenge presented to Vanguard was to supply new, reliable, high quality conventional machine tools for this facility, get them established, and provide service to keep them running efficiently.
