Goltens Secures Major Agreement with Hanjin
The Goltens Group is pleased to announce that the company has reached an exclusive, long-term service agreement with Hanjin Shipping, the Korean-based shipping giant.
Under the terms of the agreement, Hanjin has named Goltens (Shanghai) as its exclusive engine and repair service provider. In addition to working with Goltens facilities in Shanghai, Hanjin will also have access to quality service at Goltens workshops in Singapore, Rotterdam, New York, Long Beach, California and other locations in Goltens worldwide network.
According to Paul Friedberg, president of Goltens Worldwide Service, the agreement is further evidence that the company’s global 'one-stop-shop' business model is consistent with the demands of leading industry players. “As a leading global company, Hanjin requires access to quality service wherever they operate,” he says. “Goltens’ worldwide network of workshops combined with Hanjin’s confidence in the quality and consistency of our services were key elements in securing the agreement.”
KO Kim, regional manager of Goltens South Korea who was involved in the negotiations, notes that while Hanjin is based in Seoul, the agreement reflects the rapid growth of port facilities in and around Shanghai. “The service agreement is with Goltens Shanghai,” he says. “But we are confident that Hanjin will expand the scope of the agreement to include other Goltens regional centres in future.”
