MAN Engines boosts Chinese network

MAN Engines has extended its cooperation with Shanghai Ocean Equipment Co Ltd in China, concluding a new importer agreement to develop more business in engine sales, after-sales service, spare parts, and training.

The two companies have a long-standing arrangement originally set up in 2006, but the relationship with the Chinese firm was handled by MAN’s Asian hub in Singapore. Now, there is a direct line between Shanghai Ocean Equipment and MAN Engines in Germany.

Claus Benzler, head of Marine MAN Engines, said: “With Shanghai Ocean Equipment, we are relying on a very experienced and loyal partner in China. As an official importer of MAN marine engines, our direct collaboration is being ramped up, which will also benefit existing and potential customers.ˮ

Shanghai Ocean Equipment’s Patrick Low, director of Business Development, commented: “Thanks to our long-standing expertise and our large distribution and service network with 15 subsidiaries in key regions throughout China, we are an effective partner for our local customers.ˮ
