Northrop Grumman Corporation has expanded its commercial marine operations in Singapore with the creation of an Asia-Pacific Distribution Center for its Sperry Marine business unit, in a move to provide faster, more responsive shipboard service for both owners of commercial vessels and shipyards in the region.
The Asia-Pacific Distribution Center will
shorten the supply line from Sperry Marine manufacturing
facilities in Europe and North America to customers in southern and eastern Asia. A reduction of 36 hours in transit times is expected for emergency shipments.
The Asia-Pacific Distribution Center will maintain inventories of new and refurbished spare parts for all of Sperry Marine’s product lines in quantities to support customers and representatives throughout the region. The Singapore office
will also be responsible for onboard repairs for marine navigation and communications equipment for vessels calling in Singapore.
