Wrist Ship Supply, part of the Wrist Group, announced the appointment of Robert Steen Kledal as its new Managing Director. Kledal joins Wrist Ship Supply from Maersk Line where he was a Senior Vice President in the head office in Copenhagen. He has worked for A.P. Moller-Maersk for 21 years and operating all over the world, including Asia, America and Europe.
Over the past few years the company has completed over five acquisitions in Spain, France, Norway, The Netherlands and most recently the U.S. where it acquired OneSource, the largest ship supply company in America, and the biggest deal in the company’s history. This is in addition to significant investment in the company’s entire infrastructure, including advanced order and fulfillment technology and systems, as well as creating new divisions and services. This has provided customers with a complete end-to-end, and outsourced global solution for ship supplies that increases efficiencies and reduces costs.
