In addition to increasing capacity, Samson is adding new staff to support the offshore industry. The Samson’s technically trained sales team is being expanded in both Europe and Asia; new applications engineers and field support staff are joining the team in Europe, Asia, and Louisiana; and the research and development team is expanding with new experts in high-performance rope systems.
