Metalock Denmark Now MAN PrimeServ On-site Recover
By Jack Burke30 June 2017
Metalock Denmark, a global specialist in field-machining within the marine, wind and industry segments, has changed its name to MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery, becoming a full member of MAN PrimeServ, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s after-sales division.
MAN Diesel & Turbo took over Metalock in 2008, since when it has continued to provide in-situ machining services globally from its base in Copenhagen.
“This is a strategic move on our part. We have long felt that there were advantages to bringing MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery – with its unique capabilities – into the PrimeServ fold, essentially eliminating any gap between its customers and the PrimeServ organisation,” said Per Rud, head of PrimeServ Diesel. “I welcome MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery and am confident that this move will be beneficial for the now-expanded PrimeServ family and customers alike”
Stig Holm, Head of MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery, said: “Our integration into the MAN family offers a greater synergy to our customers with the easier access to global on-site support that belonging to the PrimeServ network entails. With this move, MAN PrimeServ now supports all customers looking for partners that offer all-in-one support for in-situ machining within our key segments with an increased focus on the marine segment and up-tower repair for the wind industry. Essentially, MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery’s mission remains the same as always: to minimise the downtime of our customers’ equipment.”
Established in 1952, Metalock Denmark was acquired by MAN Diesel & Turbo in 2008. As MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery, it offers on-site-machining repairs worldwide within the marine, offshore and industry segments both for MAN Diesel & Turbo and all other diesel-engine brands. MAN PrimeServ On-site Recovery’s headquarters are located in the outskirts of Copenhagen. It maintains an international presence through the global MAN PrimeServ network of after-sales workshops.
