Project success stories come not only by having advanced technologies, data traceability and intelligent, robust equipment but alongside committed and skilled personnel.

Serimax, with its global experience and local teams, is recognised for its pledge to train staff in order to provide project support and management of the right calibre for industry projects worldwide.

Thanks to this promise, Serimax is proud to share a recent accomplishment of a colleague from their local office in Malaysia.

Muhammad Aslam Bin Lan (a welder for Serimax in the Asia-Pacific) received on 27th September, 2017 an ‘Appreciation Award from the Ministry of Human Resources of Malaysia’ as one of the “Youth Icons for Malaysian Technical & Education Training (TVET)” programme by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

Serimax is delighted by this significant accomplishment. With projects in the oil and gas industry becoming more complicated, coupled with increasing requests to measure activity, this award highlights the importance of expertise and judgment in an industry moving towards data-driven decisions.

Having experts within the organisation guarantees that what’s important is managed as a priority; what we could call human intuition to an expert.

Aslam’s began his career as a student at the Training Institute Mersing (ILP) in Malaysia where he followed a technical welder training course. His professional career begun in May 2015, when he joined Serimax as a welder and where he successfully obtained his certification in welding process 6G/6GR SMAW.

Aslam has always actively sought to enhance his expertise, participating frequently in training programmes. He has worked on many projects worldwide for Serimax, both onshore and offshore using GTAW, GMAW, FCAW and SMAW.

In addition, he can manage manual as well as automatic welding systems on pipeline and piping works.

Aslam is often recognised for his involvement in technically challenging assignments and this appreciation award establishes him as a local talent and vouches for his capability to execute projects successfully.

Serimax hopes that Aslam’s achievement and recognition will inspire many other ambitious youths to follow a technical education and to get associated with the world of welding, where rigorous experts are highly sought after.

Within the Serimax teams worldwide, there are various talents ready to be applied to international oil and gas projects. Through training and skills enhancement programmes, Serimax (a Vallourec subsidiary) makes local solutions with global experience possible for its clients.
