Inchcape Opens New North American Office

press release
Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, has expanded its network in North America with the opening of a new office in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. 

 
“The opening of this office will give ISS a much needed presence in this area of Alaska,” said Tod Gannett, VP US & Canada West Coast & Hawaii. “This will allow us to better serve our current client base as well as explore new business opportunities in the region.” 
 

Although the area was handled by ISS’ Seattle office through a local sub agent network in the past it is still expecting to use sub agents in Alaska, with the aim of future expansion as business and current clientele dictate.  The office is managed by Port Manager, Greg Pawlak, formerly ISS Manager in Long Beach.  “We are excited to open up an office in an area where offshore exploration is expected to grow significantly and pleased to have Greg back to take on the challenge in what is a very remote part of the USA” added Ian Whelan SVP North America Operations
 

ISS has a proven ability to operate successfully in some of the harshest and most remote areas of the world.  In addition to its new Alaskan office, the company’s geographical network is growing with recent expansion in Chile and Mauritius.
