With an inauguration ceremony SCHOTTEL opened new facilities in Houma, Louisiana in October 2013.

The new spacious premises offer a large administration area and state of the art service halls equipped with heavy lift cranes especially suitable for large units. SCHOTTEL claims this is a further step towards enhanced commitment to the customer.

He is responsible for all sales activities in Australia.  Mohamed Salah Ghonem studied Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering in Alexandria - Egypt. During his work in the marine industry Mohamed Salah Ghonem has collected a broad experience at yards, shipowners, marine design bureaus and in the engineering industry. This will help him understand customer needs.
