TAM International stays nimble when serving oil and petroleum customers.

For 50 years, TAM International has remained flexible when serving clients, Vice President of Manufacturing Mark Newman says. “We’ve been quick to respond and we’re nimble in how we do business.”

This philosophy serves the Houston-based company well as it provides inflatable and swellable packers to the oil and gas industry, along with associated downhole products and services. Newman explains that six Texas A&M University graduates started the firm in 1968.

Under the name TAM Products Inc., the company sold inflatable packer elements, but its current owners family purchased the firm four years later. Under their leadership, the company changed its name to TAM International Inc. and added field service tools to its offerings.
