Tru-Marine to expand global service coverage to the US offering complete turbocharger repairs services to vessels calling Houston ports and meeting growing demand for prompt and quality service. Turbocharger specialist Tru-Marine opens in Houston, in a move to align its global service coverage with its customers’ increasing expectations for integrated fleetwide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) solutions.

Located in Deer Park, Texas, and supported by Tru-Marine’s extensive global service network and inventory, Tru-Marine Houston is now one of the largest turbocharger service stations in the area providing full range services for turbochargers in ocean-going vessels and offshore oil and gas installations.

Isaac Yohanan, Tru-Marine Houston’s General Manager states, “Establishing the Houston service station is a vital strategic move for us as we now bring to the American market highly competitive strength in proprietary turbocharger service engineering expertise, maintenance, repairs and overhauling methods delivering cost savings and service quality benefits”. “Poised to serve vessels, as well as off shore oil and gas installations that radiate from the Houston hub, we can now attend to calls in the entire North, Central and South America regions, including the Caribbean”, said Mr. Yohanan. The Group today operates from seven full-facility service stations including Singapore, Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Sharjah, Rotterdam and Houston representing renowned turbocharger makers including Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, KBB and Napier.
