Rio de Janeiro, United Kingdom, October 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Wings® Travel Management is strengthening its foothold in Brazil after winning the contract to provide full travel management services to MODEC, one of the world’s leading specialists in engineering, procurement, construction and installation of floating production systems.
The successful bid for MODEC comes close on the heels of Wings’ acquisition of Cabtur Operadora de Turismo in June 2014, which gave Wings full ownership and management control of the Brazilian travel management company, a market leader in the oil and gas sector.
The addition of a Brazil office means Wings Travel Management, specialists in the oil, gas, marine and corporate sector for over 20 years, now has wholly owned and managed operations on five continents, namely UK/Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and the Middle East. A further acquisition is planned in the Far East within the next 12 months.
Richard Karol, Wings Travel Management’s vice president Americas, who is responsible for overseeing the company in Brazil commented: “The integration process is progressing well and our Brazilian operations team is already seeing the benefits of being linked to Wings’ global network of wholly owned offices.
“Our clients in Brazil are benefiting from a greater choice of negotiated airline fares and land supplier rates, for example, as well as access to our proprietary incident reporting solution, Wings Incident-Free Index,” he added.
Other clients supported by Wings’ Brazil operation include energy, marine and offshore companies such as Queiroz Galvao Oil & Gas, Queiroz Galvao Exploration, Fugro, SBM, and Wilson Sons.
“Our growing client list demonstrates that Wings is fast becoming the premier provider of travel and logistics services to the rapidly expanding Brazilian oil and gas market following our acquisition of Cabtur earlier this year,” said Karol.
