MAN Diesel celebrated the official opening of its newest service centre in Seattle, Washington on 27 October to further expand its PrimeServ network in North America.

The Grand Opening of MAN Diesel PrimeServ Seattle took place in front of more than 100 customers, suppliers and business partners, including the local Honorary German and Danish Consuls.

The newly renovated, 1,800-m2 workshop and 400-m2 office space will handle customer requests for all basic repair and service requirements, and include complete overhaul facilities for fuel equipment and turbochargers. Plans are already in place to grow the size of the facility in accordance with customer demand.

“This location in the North West Pacific area is an important step in further extending MAN Diesel’s ability to reach customers on the U.S. West Coast,” said Jesper Th. Petersen, Technical Director of MAN Diesel PrimeServ Seattle. “From Seattle we can easily reach all kinds of vessel, from small fishing boat to large container ship, calling at any port from Portland, Oregon to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, and provide a timely and professional after-sales service.”

“We are located in Kent, midway between the ports of Seattle and Tacoma and just a 30-minute drive from each, while we are only 15 minutes from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Furthermore, the major ports of Vancouver and Portland, Oregon can be reached in 3-4 hours.”

With the opening of MAN Diesel PrimeServ Seattle, MAN Diesel now operates five service centres in North America, joining the existing facilities in New Jersey, Fort Lauderdale, Houston and Los Angeles.
