JGC Corp. and S & B Engineers and Constructors Ltd have signed a framework agreement to form a strategic partnership to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for projects within the US.
The partnership covers a full range of lifecycle services for the oil and gas, petrochemicals, and chemicals markets, including preliminary feasibility studies, front-end engineering and design (FEED), EPC, and project management. JGC and S & B have previously executed several highly successful EPC projects on the Gulf Coast.
“Joining efforts in the US market will position both companies to better serve clients by offering a partnership that draws on JGC’s global engineering and procurement expertise and S & B’s direct-hire construction and local procurement capabilities,” said Takehito Hidaka, President of JGC America Inc. “We look forward to collaborating with S & B and providing a competitive and valuable choice for our clients.”
James Brookshire, CEO of S & B, added: “JGC and S & B have been strategic partners for a number of years and this framework agreement for future collaboration is a major step for us moving forward. We share very similar safety, business, and ethical cultures, and together we form the preeminent lump sum EPC contractor in the region.”
