Kongsberg Announces China Office & Training Center

Friday, March 16, 2012
Kongsberg Maritime China Ltd new premises in Shanghai.

Official opening for Kongsberg Maritime China's new office and DP Operator Training Center.    

 

Global marine technology developer Kongsberg Maritime’s China division, Kongsberg Maritime China Ltd, has opened its new premises in Shanghai. The move to a much larger office reflects the continuing growth experienced by Kongsberg Maritime in China and demonstrates the company’s commitment to ensuring local assets are available throughout the Asian shipbuilding industry.
 

Staff and equipment were moved to the impressive new six-story, 5060m² building during Q1 2012 while the official opening ceremony took place on March 15th. The property provides ample opportunity for business development and features a state-of-the-art new training centre, which incorporates a training room, simulator room and instructor room. This new facility is accredited as a DP operator training centre in accordance with Nautical Institute standards.
 

Kjetil Lund, Managing Director of Kongsberg Maritime China commented on the relocation: “We have seen continued sales growth in China in recent years and our workforce in Shanghai has grown from 25 in 2003 to 250 employees today. Altogether in China, KONGSBERG now totals almost 600 employees. It became essential to relocate to better equipped offices that provide modern facilities and an open environment for both our employees and customers in order for us to continue serving increasing market requirements for our products and services in China.”
 

The existing Kongsberg Maritime China Ltd premises, two kilometres away from the new building, will be maintained for Kongsberg Maritime product testing and factory assembly.
