DEKKER Part of a Vital Industry
Scot Desiderio, DEKKER oil and gas industry market specialist, and Jay Dressander, Director of Sales at DEKKER, will host the DEKKER booth.
Desiderio is a sales executive with more than 30 years of experience in the design, operation and sizing of rough, medium and high vacuum pumps and low-pressure compression systems, with a current focus on the oil and gas/chemical marketplace.
Dressander is a sales and marketing executive with more than 18 years of experience in project management, business-to-business sales and marketing and brand development, with a focus on air handling and rotating equipment.
Desiderio noted that federal offshore oil production in the Gulf of Mexico represents nearly one-fifth of total U.S. crude oil production. He said, “While the oil industry is currently in a downturn, offshore production remains a foundation of the U.S. economy. DEKKER compressors, pumps and systems are built for durability and value, with their integral importance to the industry in mind.”
DEKKER products are among those that draw significant attention at Topsides. According to the post-show demographic report of the 2015 event, “Motors/Engines/Pumps/Compressors/Turbines/Generators” was cited as the fourth highest “Area of Interest” among attendees, at 22.6 percent.
The 2015 conference was attended by a record number of 2,227 from 33 states and 25 countries. Dressander said, “Networking with the technical experts and decision makers in the industry has definitely benefitted the DEKKER brand. We want industry professionals to recognize that they too will benefit, from our unique combination of experience, expertise and innovation.”
