The office currently generates approximately $65mm/yr in revenue from standard inspection, in various industry segments in the NDT market. While Houston has shown tremendous growth in last 7 years, future increased growth expectations from Mistras Service Group will require a higher level of management expertise and sales skill to assist the Regional Sales Effort in maintaining its growth goals. A more structured approach and a higher level of customer contact along with management of the present and future sales effort is necessary to provide innovative solutions, reduced customer cost and the delivery of higher value, to enable the beginning of a transition from standard NDT to the "higher-end/higher margin" services provided by Mistras NDT, PdM and Engineering services.
In an opportunistic market we want to capitalize on the future growth and higher margin potential that will be the basis for our advanced NDE service blend goal of 70/30 not simply taking calls and deploying crews. The basis of this position is to add a seasoned, mature individual to assist the sales effort in pursuing high return prospects, capitalizing on the advance service offerings while simultaneously upselling this blend to current and future evergreen clients. Additionally, through innovative solutions and full service offerings, savings can be realized by the customer while margin improvements are still accomplished by MISTRAS. This position will be tasked with helping to develop, implement and promote specific methodologies related to the Oil and Gas market such as mechanical integrity, key performance indicators and other technical solutions as determined by management.
This position will ensure we continue our forward-thinking, innovative style. It is imperative that this position emulates those strengths to other divisions and regions throughout Mistras thus strengthening the company as a whole. The end game, is that we will be better positioned even in a lower revenue market for high, profitable, advanced relationships with our existing and ever-growing customer base.
