It’s an ambitious programme, but it’s achievable because of inherent capabilities and we look forward to taking it to the market.”ProductsAccording to EnerQuip, the company’s key products include a range of bucking units and fully rotational makeup and breakout torque machines and associated products, such as jar testers, containerised workshops and pipe handling systems.Furthermore, the company’s services include torque machine servicing and upgrades, jar tester repair and maintenance, equipment design and manufacture, calibration and software support.
