Sarens has formed a joint venture with LAM - Lyonel A. Makzume Shipping Agencies (Makzume) to expand its operations in Turkey and neighbouring countries.

Executive board member of Makzume, Selim Makzume, explained that the joint venture - Sarens Makzume - will provide heavy lifting and specialised transport solutions to the industrial project industry in the region.

“The joint venture will bring an experienced group to our region, at a time when the region's energy and communications infrastructure is developing rapidly” added Makzume.
