Shipyards group now has 15 global hubs

Damen Shipyards Group is opening its latest service hub in Hamburg, Germany. This takes the total number of hubs to 15, spread across Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, and Australia.

The Hamburg hub will serve not only Germany but also Denmark and Poland.

The Hamburg hub will act as the one-stop shop for Damen customers located in the region seeking warranty service, training and service support. However, customers do not necessarily need to own Damen vessels. The group’s resources are available to all seeking advice and support as well as access to facilities and expertise.

Damen Shipyards Group has opened a new service hub in Hamburg, Germany. Seen here are Carsten Wiese (Service Hub Manager Hamburg, Damen Services); Joschka Böddeling (Sales Manager, Damen); Roderick Buijs (Account Manager Services North Europe, Damen).

Like all Damen service hubs, Hamburg is staffed by local personnel with experience of shipbuilding and maintenance in their region and able to respond quickly to inquiries. The hub is also expanding its network of local suppliers to ensure that products and services are sourced locally wherever possible.

“A key part of our service offering is the provision of integrated maritime solutions,” said Carsten Wiese, Service Hub manager, Hamburg. “By being geographically closer to our customers, we are well-positioned to engage with owners throughout the lifecycle of their vessels. This enables us to offer targeted and relevant solutions to help minimize long-term operational costs, particularly when vessel connectivity facilitates knowledge-powered operations, and also maintenance support solutions.”

While the hub acts as a single point of contact for customers in the Germany, Denmark, Poland region, customers can be assured that the full resources of the Damen group stand behind it, and the hub can also coordinate with the other hubs around the world to ensure continuity of care as a vessel moves across the oceans.
