Paul C. Koomey

Paul Koomey has built successful manufacturing, sales and service organizations by seeing the needs of his clients, the rig contractors, and using his technical skills and innovation to develop products to fulfill them.  Beginning his career as an engineer at Stewart and Stevenson in 1950 he conceived the idea of the Koomey system of blowout preventer controls which was immensely successful and became a worldwide standard.  For a time “Koomey” became the generic term for offshore and land BOP controls.  In 1979 he started his own company to manufacture an innovative line of blowout preventers, BOP control units, water makers, subsea control units and related equipment.
