Schat-Harding is expanding its global service network with a new Italian office and service station in Livorno. It will be a branch office of USH Spain and will be managed by Enrico Venezia, who has experience with lifeboat servicing, and has until recently been based in Miami servicing cruise vessels.
"There is a very strong base of Italian owners who are safety conscious, and of course the Italian ports get a lot of cruise calls," explains David Bradley, Executive Vice-President and head of Schat-Harding's service division. "It makes good sense to have a stronger presence in Italy and we expect to expand from two to seven service engineers in Italy in the next few months."
Contact details for the Italian office are:
