The MacArtney Group said that as of January 2014, long standing MacArtney Group member, EurOceanique, will carry out a name change to become MacArtney France.
Founded in 1994 and operating out of modern office and workshop facilities in Rousset, MacArtney France employs a strong and experienced team of engineers, sales professionals and technicians supporting the entire range of MacArtney systems and products.
Under the locally established name EurOceanique, the company has operated as a MacArtney Group subsidiary for the last 8 years. With the name change, MacArtney France looks to emphasize its ties to the MacArtney Group and make explicit that French and Southern European underwater technology customer and operators benefit from as well dedicated local service as global MacArtney Group support.
Global support for complex underwater projects
Another key factor in the name change is found in the demand pattern that guides the current strategy of the MacArtney group. Over the past decade, demand has gradually shifted from being based primarily on items and products, to focusing on complete underwater technology system solutions, requiring more project management and engineering resources. Through the MacArtney Group headquarters in Esbjerg, Denmark, MacArtney France has access to highly trained and multidisciplinary engineering and project management departments dedicated to develop and deliver solutions for even the most complex subsea challenges.
"The success of MacArtney France is based on understanding our customers' needs and on being able to provide full support for their projects, from draft to delivery" says David Mazzochi, Managing Director of MacArtney France, and continues: "With the name change, we wish to reinforce the fact that handing over a project to us, means handing it over to a global underwater technology expert with more than 35 years of experience and full support of projects at any scale".
