Superior craftsmanship, expert knowledge of materials and engineering are deeply rooted traditions carried on by generations of skilled employees. It is those employees who will benefit from a number of Continuing Professional Development initiatives offered to Berg as a central pillar of their IMarEST Marine Partnership.”

“Today we operate out of state of the art production facilities in Sweden and Singapore, with sales and service offices located in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Istanbul, Dubai, Singapore, Bremen, San Sebastian, Rio De Janeiro, Busan and the Swedish west coast. We want to use the IMarEST Marine Partners programme to ensure we fully support our talented team at all these facilities.

“The package of services, employee engagement, professional development opportunities – both CPD and IPD, networking, technical support and information opportunities we have negotiated with the Institute, demonstrates our commitment to developing employee skills, as well as being a method of extending our marketing reach. We are looking forward to working with the Institute to make sure we benefit to the full from this new arrangement.”
