ABB Turbocharging announced today it will celebrate the opening of a new service facility in Fredericia, Denmark on June 12, 2014. The ceremony will also mark the completion of the amalgamation of its activities in Norway, Denmark and Sweden into a single Local Business Unit (LBU).

“With TURBOCHARGING SCANDINAVIA we merge three rather small units in Norway, Sweden and Denmark into a common, more powerful organization served by a well-integrated team with focus on customer needs across entire Scandinavia,” said LBU Manager, Joachim Bremer.

ABB Turbocharging Scandinavia comprises Service Stations in Oslo & Bergen in Norway, Göteborg in Sweden and the new central workshop for Denmark in Fredericia. Additionally we have two service engineers and a sales team stationed in Copenhagen. This already good geographical footprint will soon be further strengthened by a new Service Point in Tromsø, Northern Norway.

Thus, ABB Turbocharging in Scandinavia will comprise of some 40 staff in six locations, with a good mix of experienced and young people. “Being close to our customers with local-to-local execution of services and sales remains our focus”, says Bremer. “Service coordination for Norway will be performed by a team in Oslo while a joint team in the large Service Station in Göteborg will manage the service activities for Denmark and Sweden.

According to Bremer, Fredericia is an excellent location that allows literally all locations of Denmark to be reached in about 2-3 hours.

“The location also has the additional advantage of being an established and a big ABB site, where there are a considerable number of ABB employees in the large workshop site, with excellent logistics and more facilities. The turbocharging workshop also meets high safety standards as required for our service operations,” Bremer added.

The opening in Frederica, Denmark is a move in stepping up our service operations in a strong market. As home to leading ship owners, including the globally active container market leader AP Møller-Maersk, Denmark is a major shipping nation and Denmark’s power generation grid includes a number of decentralized power and cogeneration plants based on piston engines.

As well as inaugurating the new ABB Turbocharging location in Fredericia, the celebration will be a chance to inform customers of the Scandinavian reorganization. “It is will offer us an excellent opportunity to meet and talk with our customers,” Bremer confirmed.

Bremer also relishes the chance to meet customers away from their own offices. “I think it’s always beneficial to show customers where and how we actually work on their equipment. Seeing who is doing it and how professionally they are doing it, is sure to give them confidence in ABB Turbocharging Service. Plus, they have the chance to see, touch and feel – not all of our customers get to see the work they are ordering and it’s nice to explain things “hands-on” in the actual location where it all takes place.”
