A trusted partner to the oil and gas, mining and other energy industries for over 30 years, Gateway’s origins were as a trading enterprise in Singapore during the 1980s.
Our first operation in Kazakhstan was launched in 1993, little over a year after the Republic’s declaration of independence in December 1991. Gateway’s initial focus in the country was on the importation and trade of industrial goods. After establishing distribution networks and sales offices in Kazakhstan, we began providing industrial support services to the Oil and Gas industry in 2000. A major breakthrough in Gateway’s history came when we became one of the suppliers of consumables to Kazakhstan’s Karachiganak gas field.
In 2002 Gateway opened an office in the port and oil city of Atyrau, from which time we have grown to include operations in 11 countries, with offices located throughout Central Asia as well as Africa, the Middle East, North America and Southeast Asia.
Having evolved beyond our origins as a simple trading business into additionally providing services, project materials, equipment maintenance and fabrication facilities to the energy and other industries, in 2008 we restructured into three business units. Gateway’s activities were divided between our Industrial Product Supplies (IPS), Oil and Gas Services (OGS), and Engineering and Project Management (EPM) divisions. With IPS continuing Gateway’s traditional trading activities, the company hired large numbers of experienced staff to provide services and maintenance for the Oil and Gas industries, while an engineering company was purchased in Dehli, India and incorporated into the EPM division.
The following year we expanded further with the creation of a new fabrication division following the acquisition of the Aktau-based operation, Sewon Vertex Heavy Industry.
