HMC opens engineering office in IndiaNews // September 3, 2008
Heerema Marine Contractor’s CEO John Reed opened the company’s new Bangalore office in India on August 28th.
Accompanied by Technology Manager Jurgina Feith and Jaap Zwikker, Vice President Commercial and Business Development for the Asia Pacific region, Mr Reed cut the ribbon and declared the office open for business.
The new office was set up in line with HMC's strategy of re-entering Asian markets.
"In conjunction with a spate of recently awarded large projects, including the largest project in the company’s history – a US$1 billion contract off the coast of Angola – and an already significant existing backlog, the demand for engineering work has grown proportionally," said the company.
HMC is therefore intensifying its recruitment drive in both the national and international arena, and one way in which HMC reaches the international labour market is by opening local offices.
