Marking the latest addition to its portfolio of service and support initiatives, MacArtney Inc. has recently acquired and outfitted a state-of-the-art Mobile Workshop.

Hansen, "MacArtney is experiencing an ever increasing need to be close to customers, and with the new mobile workshop, we are able to minimise downtime of equipment and offer fast and flexible support and a mobile controlled workshop environment with specialist tools to underwater technology operators - when and where they need it."
