SGB Scaffolding and Industrial Services Appointed MATCOR Distributor in India

Chalfont, PA (November 12, 2015) – MATCOR, Inc., the trusted full-service provider of proprietary cathodic protection products, systems, and corrosion engineering solutions recently announced that the company has appointed SGB Scaffolding and Industrial Services Private Limited (SGB India) as its distributor in India. SGB will take over the MATCOR operations in India. Both MATCOR and SGB India are Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services (BEIS) companies.

SGB India, headquartered in Hyderabad, India, provides industrial services and construction related solutions. This move to incorporate MATCOR’s proprietary cathodic protection and AC mitigation solutions enables SGB India to deliver a broader range of services and solutions to customers throughout India.

Shailesh Javia will lead operations in relation to cathodic protection products, systems, and corrosion engineering solutions out of SGB’s office in Ahmedabad, India. The office is located at 106, Sakar – V, B/h. Natraj Cinema, Opp. H.K. College, Ashram Road, Ahmedabad – 380009, Gujarat, India and staff can be reached by phone at +91 (0)79 26588551 or email at

“With the significant infrastructure development expected in India, local operators will benefit greatly from MATCOR’s turnkey corrosion prevention solutions and SGB’s industrial and construction solutions,” said Kevin Pitts, President of MATCOR.

India is home to many major companies in the oil and gas, chemical, power, water and other infrastructure industries. These companies operate assets such as pipelines, plant piping, offshore structures and storage tanks that require the corrosion prevention products and services provided by MATCOR. In addition, India has a growing network of pipelines laid in overhead electrical right-of-way corridors. Pipelines along these corridors experience AC interference as great as 50-75 VAC, which can cause corrosion and a hazardous environment for workers and the public.

SGB India will provide operators in India with full array of cathodic protection and corrosion engineering services, in addition to a full range of AC mitigation products and services to combat pipeline AC interference.

  1. It is good to see the collaboration of CP global player with the India-based service provider for providing corrosion control services and improving the integrity of industrial assets. There are instances of dreadful pipeline accidents reported in India. We do not see the active recruitment of corrosion engineers by oil and gas companies in India to form the backbone of asset integrity. At the present time, a majority of corrosion management activities are handled by non-corrosion groups.

    1. MATCOR firmly believes that education is the cornerstone to good decision making with regards to corrosion control and prevention. We are excited to be actively involved with the NACE CORCON conference next week in Chennai with MATCOR and SGB experts participating as speakers. More about CORCON India
