Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC, a company in marine regulatory, load management, salvage and ship design software, said it has opened an office in Busan to reinforce support for Korean-based shipyards, as well as improve the quality of service to this key market. Herbert-ABS also has an office in Shanghai and earlier this year expanded into Singapore.
The Busan office will be led by Arnold (Woo-Sung) Cho, Marketing and Sales Manager, whose primary focus will be to strengthen relationships with the Korean yards. Cho's activities will also consist of representing Herbert-ABS at industry conferences, to include Gastech, 24-27 March in South Korea at stand G360.
"As many of our clients order new vessels and offshore assets in Korea, this new branch office will further improve the installation, commissioning and training service at the Korean shipyards", said Hendrik Bruhns, President of Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC.
Herbert-ABS is a joint venture between ABS and Herbert Engineering Corp., and the opening of an office in Korea will improve local service with more onboard CargoMax loading computer software deliveries, as well as provide project management by local Herbert-ABS staff.
