ClassNK sets up office in Kolkata

13 Dec 2010

ClassNK officially announced the opening of a new exclusive surveyor office in Kolkata, India. The new office is the seventh new office to be opened by the society in 2010, and becomes its sixth surveyor office in India.

The new office will serve the port of Kolkata and other nearby ports in the north-eastern part of the country, which is among India’s fastest growing regions. Upon announcing the opening of the new office, ClassNK chairman & president Noboru Ueda noted that although this was the society’s sixth office in the country, ClassNK had its sights set on further growth, saying: “This office in Kolkata is only one part of our expansion efforts in greater India, and over the next year we will be further expanding our service network to better support the growth of the local maritime industry, and provide even better service to our clients in the region.”

The rapid expansion of ClassNK’s service network parallels the rapid growth of the society’s register, which has grown by more than 9 million gross tons since the beginning of the year to reach a total of more than 178 million gross tons. The Kolkata office joins ClassNK’s existing offices in Chennai, Dahej, Kochi, Mumbai and Visakhapatnam.
