Hatenboer-Water BV has sealed a partnership agreement with Ålesund Maritime AS to solidify its products’ foothold in Norway and Scandinavia as a whole.
Hatenboer-Water BV stressed that the dealership agreement would further strengthen the 115-year-old Dutch water production and treatment specialist’s acceleration. In the past 12 months, Hatenboer-Water said it has extended its global network with four partnerships and one branch office on four continents.
These five latest network extensions all dominantly feature the maritime and offshore industries. This is Hatenboer’s historical stronghold in which it aims to be the industry reference, providing full-scope water treatment products and services, such as (drink) water makers, pressure sets, sampling services and training courses.
Ålesund Maritime’s Managing Director, Ole Andre Grebstad:“Hatenboer-Water fits well into our portfolio of true green products. Their reverse osmosis technology benefits the shipowner with reliable, safe water with low energy consumption. Furthermore, their Bottle Filling Stations supply crew with chilled, safe water and constitute an eco-friendly onboard plastic reduction. Hatenboer-Water represents predictability, being the most experienced supplier of reverse osmosis services worldwide.”
Hatenboer-Water CCO Guy Heijnen: “Representing many manufacturers of maritime solutions, Ålesund Maritime helps shipowners, yards, integrators and ship designers put together cost-effective and attractive product packages for both newbuilds and refit in the Scandinavian market. From his broad offshore and maritime career, Mr. Grebstad has an eye for crew health and fully understands the importance of high-quality water. We have a partner who advocates our sustainable concept. As Hatenboer-Water is serving a worldwide clientele and pursues a prompt response to any water related questions, we are convinced that Ålesund Maritime will adequately support our installed base in the Scandinavian region.” Willem Buij
s, CEO Hatenboer-Water emphasised “Our campaign to extend our global representation, and geographical spread doesn’t end with these latest five extensions. This was acceleration, not the finish. In an earlier stage, we set up offices in Singapore and Dubai. With these additions, we take another step in getting closer to our clients and supplying water solutions to them more efficiently.
