Svanehøj opens Kobe sales office
Denmark-based pump manufacturer Svanehøj has opened an East Asia sales office in the Japanese city of Kobe. The sales office means Svanehøj will be closer to the growing customer base for its products and services in East Asia.
“We already have many customers in East Asia, particularly in Japan, and we notice a very exciting development is taking place out there. The gas market is growing rapidly, driven by a focus on getting rid of harmful particles from oil and coal. I am convinced that we can increase our sales through physical presence In East Asia,” says CEO Søren Kringelholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj has appointed Jens Peter Lund to lead the new office in Kobe, changing his title from International Sales Manager to Sales Director, Asia. Jens Peter Lund has extensive experience of serving Asian markets, and has now relocated to Japan.
Some 85% of the world’s transport ships are built in Japan, Korea or China, and the company expects to see growing demand for environmentally friendly shipping solutions, citing DNV GL estimates that more than 10% of the global shipping fleet will be powered by LNG by 2030.
Svanehøj supplies several of the largest shipyards in the region, including Korean Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), who placed a massive order for 48 Svanehøj pumps for three new VLECs (Very Large Ethane Carriers) earlier this year.
The company expects to quadruple sales of its Svanehøj ECA Fuel Pump for LNG, Ethane and Methanol in 2019 – and is aiming to double its sales again in 2020.
