Damen Shipyards Group is expanding its global service hub network with the opening a new Service Hub in Southampton, UK.

The expansion of Damen’s Service Hubs network responds to the company’s dedication and philosophy to ‘think global, act local’. The Southampton Services Hub will provide Damen’s clients throughout the UK with a wide range of solutions.

“Damen enjoys a number of close and long-standing relationships with operators in the region and we are looking forward to building on this solid foundation. In the long-term we aim to develop our offering in the UK, extending it in order to support not only Damen vessel operators, but the country’s maritime sector generally,” says Mick Nolan, manager of Damen Southampton Service Hub.

The Service Hub’s broad scope will provide customers support with warranty and maintenance issues. From the hub, Damen will also provide a range of training courses to its clients, including vessel familiarisation and maintenance.

The services and accessibility offered by Damen’s UK Hub are paired with a wealth of information and connectivity accessible via the MyDamen web portal.
