Damen adds support in China

January 17 - Damen Shipyards Group has opened Damen's China Support Company in Shanghai.

Coordinated by managing director John Zhou, the company will be involved in a range of activities, including commercial activity for Damen newbuild activities and Damen Marine Components as well as the provision of services to clients in the region.

Damen area sales manager, Michiel Hendrikx, said: "Damen already has very strong connections in China, where we operate two shipyards - Damen Shipyards Changde and the joint venture, Damen Yichang Shipyard. As well as these, Damen Marine Components has a facility in Jiangyin.

"We felt it was time to have more direct contact with our clients and suppliers in the region and opening this facility will provide an answer to this need."
