ABS relocates NE European operations

06 Feb 2013

American based classification society, ABS, has decided to relocate its Northern European marine operations from London in the UK to Hamburg in Germany to enhance service delivery.

Christopher Wiernicki, ABS president and CEO, said: “This relocation is part of ABS’ ongoing effort to place our frontline decision makers closer to our clients and be more responsive to their needs.”

He added: “Expanding and strengthening the key resources in the region will enhance our service delivery capability and streamline access to the ABS network of engineers and surveyors.”

Wolfgang Buttgereit, regional vice president of Northern Europe, will lead the Hamburg team, focusing local efforts on challenges unique to the area and drawing on the extensive network of ABS resources around the globe to provide prompt and comprehensive solutions.

This move will bring a regional lead surveyor to Hamburg along with additional resources to support the already existing engineering office.
