Asian, in early 2019, had taken a strategic decision to expand its services beyond oil and gas and as of today has successfully secured service contracts in coal exploration and mining. After successful entry into coal mining industry, Asian's recent efforts has been towards strengthening the materials handling and O&M businesses while maintaining the focus on its seismic opportunities. The management team has been re-organized accordingly to maintain equal focus on these three verticals to achieve Company's vision.
"Asian Energy Services has always been in the forefront of delivering quality services to its customers making innovative use of technology to manage the technical challenges while maintaining highest standards of safety. The Company has recently concluded a challenging start up and commissioning project in North East India ahead of schedule and has now entered the operation and maintenance phase for the facility. This contract aligns well with our vision of growing O&M services as an independent vertical and will pave ways to consolidate our position as a significant O&M service provider in India. This fits well into Asian's vision of growth and expansion and we now aim to expand our services to offshore and other industries as well." - Mr. Ashutosh Kumar, Whole time Director and CEO.
