Sperry Marine expands Chinese operations

Sperry Marine expands Chinese operations

Shanghai: Northrop Grumman Corporation's Sperry Marine business unit has announced an expansion of its commercial marine service facility in Shanghai to over 4,700sq feet, more than doubling the number of staff and establishing a full complement of depot spares.

Sperry Marine hopes that that changes will enable it to provide faster and more responsive shipboard service for bridge navigation and communication electronics in China. The spares inventory is supplemented, replenished and distributed throughout the region by the company's Asia-Pacific Distribution Center in Singapore. The service operation in China is fully capable of performing installations of integrated bridge systems and other Sperry Marine equipment at all of the country's major commercial shipyards.
Sperry Marine also operates in the Guangzhou and Dalian areas of China, and continues to maintain major spares distribution and repair centers in Rotterdam and New Orleans as part of the company's worldwide ServiceNet group.
"Sperry Marine has had a presence in China for 30 years, and this expansion will enable us to provide excellent service to both the commercial shipyards and the deep sea trade at China's busy ports," said Nolasco DaCunha, vp Sperry Marine. "We will be in a strong position to offer even more efficient and cost-effective service for China's growing commercial maritime trade."  [13/05/08]
