With the changing market conditions and a commitment to proactively support the global needs of its customers, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s solutions group has expanded its presence in the Asia Pacific market by opening a new project management office in Singapore.

The office is located at 77 Robinson Road on the 34th floor of the Robinson Building and can be contacted at +65 6809 2160. William Hill, PMP, has relocated from Crowley’s Anchorage office to Singapore where he has assumed the position of director, business development, and will manage the project support office. Hill has been with Crowley for more than six years as director, projects and director, business development, in Alaska working numerous sealift and marine projects for major oil, gas and Engineering, Construction and Procurement Management (EPCM) customers.  

Crowley's expansion allows the company to better support customers in the oil and gas mining; ECPM; and Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commissioning (EPIC) industries, who are increasingly embarking on large-scale onshore and offshore projects and require additional support and resources including full-service project management and logistics solutions.

“We’ve seen an increase in customers requiring service in the region and as part of our commitment to consistently evaluate and expand service offerings to meet such needs, we have decided that a physical location with local personnel in Singapore was necessary,” said Hill. “It will allow us to not only have in-person management of our assets in the area, but will also provide better, more timely communication with our current and potential customer base.”

In addition to the newly opened solutions office in Singapore, Crowley subsidiary TITAN Salvage also maintains a local presence with a 45,000 square-foot site west of the city, allowing for more rapid emergency response in the region.
