MacArtney expands in Scandinavia, new office opens in Sweden
MacArtney, the leading supplier of underwater technology, is set to expand in Scandinavia with the opening of a dedicated office in Mölnlycke near Gothenburg, Sweden.
To date, the Swedish market has been serviced from MacArtney's head office in Denmark with a distributor in Sweden - Marine Survey, led by Cecilia Drougge. A long-term, rewarding business relationship, creating a solid base, branding the MacArtney portfolio within underwater solutions such as underwater connectivity and data acquisition.
However, the extensive marine and offshore activities along Sweden's coastline, matching MacArtney fields of operation, motivated the establishment of a local office in Gothenburg. An ideal location for interacting with renewable and defence enterprises and supporting ocean science initiatives involving industrial, academic and scientific institutions.
38-year-old Emil Andersson, who has worked for MacArtney over the last three years, mainly involved in global sales, will now be charged with leading the sales efforts in his home country and welcomes the expansion:
"The Swedish market has grown rapidly in the last couple of years. Especially in terms of large-scale projects resulting in a growing volume of orders for products such as our connectors, winches and underwater systems. The potential for spin-off business is enormous, and we are therefore scaling up our presence, opening an office staffed initially by myself and a Sales Administrator," says Andersson.
Local engagement is essential for growth. It opens more and new doors, which CCO Rasmus Bonde is highly enthusiastic about.
"We want to continue servicing the connectivity business and support our customers in Sweden. Our aim is to create a fully-fledged MacArtney setup, building our relationships with Swedish customers and get in even closer collaboration on new projects," states Bonde.
Emil Andersson has solid experience with underwater technology, working in this field in Swedish and Australian companies for the past ten years. Emil is a graduate engineer having a background in sonar and underwater video technology.
Looking forward to the Swedish office with Emil at the helm, CCO Rasmus Bonde concludes:
"We continue to strengthen our global presence and local support, with the emphasis on agility and quick responsiveness to our local customers' requirements."
MacArtney Sweden AB will officially open its doors during April 2022.
