To date Lloyd Werft has been represented by about a dozen agents mainly in Europe and the USA. Now the yard is re-organising its representation abroad and, along with two new agencies in Scandinavia and Singapore, is also being represented for the first time in the Far East.
Lloyd Werft Managing Director Rüdiger Pallentin explained: “in future we want to better market the whole range of our international capabilities with new people and new momentum and move closer to the international market”. He added: “ in JML Shipyards & Marine AB in Fjällbacken in Sweden and Coway Marine Services in Singapore we have been able to attract real professionals to our corner, with many years of experience”.
For Pallentin, the move also means that the established old Bremerhaven shipyard is making even greater efforts on behalf of ship and machinery repair and conversion in all their aspects - a hub sector of activity that goes back 154 years to the yard’s very beginning. However it is intended that newbuilding and the completion of ships, a sector that has won the yard a good international reputation in recent years, should also remain on the programme “if the opportunity presents itself”.
