LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Aug. 1, 2014 - PRLog -- Lake Forest, CA, August 1, 2014 – KOR Company, Inc. announced today the formation of KOR Maritime, Oil/Gas Solutions Group. The creation of this division was developed to allow KOR to become the “Managed Solutions Provider” for the Maritime (Ports and Waterways), Oil and Gas markets. Due to increases in maritime commercial trade and related terrorist activity, challenges to maritime security have produced a demand for better and smarter technology to support our forces and protect our offshore assets. The U.S. maritime system alone includes more than 3,000 cargo and passenger terminals, shipping through 1,000 harbor channels and more than 12,000 miles of coastline.

The Energy and Oil & Gas industries have seen a tremendous growth. Onshore, oil and natural gas is produced at over 300,000 sites across the United States, and nearly 30,000 new wells are drilled each year. About 28 percent of US oil and gas production is from offshore sources. This production is spread over more than 4,000 oil and gas platforms. According to the Oil & Gas Journal, there are currently nearly 600 natural gas processing plants in the United States. Oil pipelines, both crude oil and refined petroleum products, are the most significant mode of petroleum transportation in the U.S. Pipelines carry 68% of oil transported (in barrel-miles), while water transportation accounts for 27%, trucks 3% and rail 2%. Nationwide there are some 160,000 miles of oil pipelines, excluding intra-state systems and gathering lines associated with crude oil production. Providing comprehensive security throughout these systems is no small undertaking. KOR will focus on a wide range of solutions from integrating with legacy equipment already installed to the creation of Situational Awareness Management Systems (SAMS) and Maritime Early Warning Systems (MEWS).

Kelly Warbis, CEO of KOR Company added:

“We have been studying these markets for several years now and feel that the time is right to expand in this direction. We have looked at the challenges in this market with great detail and have found that even with the technology advancement in products and systems most integrators push their “product solution” on the customer. Much of our time and focus will be spent dealing with customer challenges to create the BEST OF BREED solution for their individual needs. Whether it is as simple as changing some of their internal processes or developing a Mesh Network for a camera array or goal is to become their Managed Solutions Provider.

KOR’s drive to stay manufacturer agnostic enables us to concentrate on the challenge before us - to come up with the best solution for our clients. Though we are an Integrator ourselves, there will be many projects where there are several Integrators working on the same project. Vendor Management has always been one of our strong points and we see this as an integral piece of our Professional Service offering. KOR plans to implement Cloud or Hosted Solutions whenever possible as clients typically see fewer interruptions in systems while still maintaining control; while we see higher gross margins as it relates to service because issues can usually be resolved remotely – without having to send out a technician.  It goes without saying, but we are very excited to be playing such a crucial role in Homeland Security.”

KOR Company, Inc. was formed in 2012 and is the parent company of commercial security and IT companies specializing in the integration of total security solutions. Thru earning the “Trusted Advisor” status with our clients we bring technology solutions to clients that will free them to focus on their core business and not on the ever-evolving technology landscape. Customers require technology to be competitive, productive and for regulatory compliance. KOR will show these businesses how to implement technology, manage technology and extract great value from the use of technology today and in the future.
