The AdvanFort Company has opened an office in Hamburg, Germany, as part of its growing worldwide customer service network, particularly for clients in Europe.

“AdvanFort has made a substantial investment in the future of our clients in Germany and the rest of Northern Europe by inaugurating our office in Hamburg, the maritime crossroad in that region, thus ensuring that we are closer to our customers,” said company President William H. Watson. “Our move into Hamburg comes as we have named Axel Tuetken, former Maersk Line country president in Japan, as our Vice President for Sales and Business Development.”

Axel Tuetken underlined the fact that the opening of the Hamburg office comes hand in hand with AdvanFort’s creation of a robust sales team in the Asia market, at a time when—as the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) recently revealed — Southeast Asia is the region reporting the highest number of pirate attacks.

The company adds that it is also stepping up efforts to deliver a wide range of maritime security services to ports and vessels in the increasingly troubled Gulf of Guinea.

“AdvanFort’s reputation for offering a growing number of clients best-practice services at an affordable cost
forms the backbone of our continued efforts to help protect the free and peaceful flow of commerce around the world,” Tuetken noted.

He pointed out that AdvanFort efforts in Asia have been significantly buttressed by the recent opening of offices in Tokyo, Singapore, and Seoul, while it has also established a permanent business presence in Istanbul, Turkey.
