New SCHOTTEL facility in Houma, LA

SCHOTTEL Inc. USA inaugurates new service location in Houma, La.; new SCHOTTEL subsidiary sales office in Australia.

With an inauguration ceremony SCHOTTEL opened new facilities in Houma, Louisiana in October 2013. As an answer to the growing request for new SCHOTTEL propulsion systems and the steadily growing population of drives on the market the German manufacturer moved from St. Rose, La. to new facilities in Houma, La. 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.

SCHOTTEL also announced the founding of a subsidiary in Fremantle, Australia. Mohamed Salah Ghonem has been appointed director of SCHOTTEL Australia. 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.


The SCHOTTEL Group, with its headquarters in Spay/Rhine, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of propulsion and steering systems for ships and offshore applications.
