Australian Service Hub
Damen recently opened its first Service Hub in Australia. Damen Services Brisbane Pty Ltd serves Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. Headed up by Peter Ryan, the new hub handles all warranty, maintenance issues and it provides training courses, as well having a spare parts store onsite. The Australian office is also building up business relationships with local simulator companies to further extend maritime training possibilities.
Damen was keen to be on the east coast of the country because this is a very busy area with many interesting projects going on and the company’s business in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands is also expanding significantly. There are some 70 Damen vessels operating in the region currently, with more to come.
