Tuesday, June 19, 2012

W&O launched a new branch in Halifax, Canada.  The new branch is located at 133 Ilsley Avenue, Dartmouth, NS B3B 1S9. With a branch already established in Vancouver, W&O’s growing Canadian presence well-positions them to support the completion of the Canadian Navy’s $35 billion fleet expansion program over the next 20 to 30 years. 
“Our established Halifax and Vancouver locations provide us with a competitive advantage over other non-Canadian competitors,” said Michael Hume, President and CEO of W&O. “Not only are we looking forward to the opportunities presented by the fleet expansion program, our new location provides future prospects in the offshore oil industry happening in Newfoundland.”
The Halifax branch will be led by Dan Sawler, a longtime resident of Nova Scotia.  Sawler joins W&O with an extensive background in the marine industry.  The branch will fall under the direct management of Regional Manager, Scott Hendrickson who leads the company’s Northeast branches in North America.
W&O recently opened another international location in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  The new office in Halifax will be W&O’s fifth international location.
