The MacArtney Underwater Technology Group has announced the inauguration of its fifth dedicated business unit in North America.
Located in Jupiter, Florida, just north of West Palm Beach, the new MacArtney ‘Southeast Operations’ will cover a six-state area including Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
Headed by General Manager, Lou Dennis, the new operations will supply cutting edge underwater technology products and solutions to clients and operators within the region.
Local access to local support
According to MacArtney Inc. President, Lars Hansen, the southeast expansion has been part of MacArtney strategy from the day the company chose to enter the North American market: “With our headquarters strategically located in Houston and operations in place at regional marine industry hotspots including Boston, San Diego and Victoria (Canada) we aim to firmly underline our dedication to providing local access to global support and service for all current and future users of MacArtney underwater technology products and system solutions in North America.”
Huge potential across multiple industries
MacArtney is keen to utilize the huge potential presented by the sheer multitude and unique composition of maritime industries based in the Southeast.
While the region is known to harbor several marine technology OEMs, ocean science institutes and defense clients with whom MacArtney has cultivated good business relations over several years, less explored markets such as dredging, diving, subsea mineral exploration and salvage operations also hold vast potential.
“When it comes to the Southeast demand for MacArtney offerings, we know for a fact that our SubConn connectors are widely used across all marine industries. Also, we expect to see a further increase in demand for MacArtney winches and handling systems for various applications and we will strive to land even more orders for the advanced integrated solutions for which MacArtney is globally renowned,” said Lars Hansen.
