First major contracts for updated Wilhelmsen Ships Service pool & spa chemicals
Jan. 11, 2010 - Wilhelmsen Ships Service has been awarded contracts to supply its updated range of pool & spa chemicals for two of the brands owned by cruise giant Carnival Corporation. The updated line of chemicals will be supplied globally to the ships of Holland America Line and Princess Cruises.
Philip Bannerman, Regional Sales Director of Wilhelmsen Ships Service comments, "These contracts represent our first significant sales since we recently updated our range of pool & spa chemicals. Our Cruise specialists worked closely with our customers and our product specialists to develop the new range. This success certainly validates the new product range and Wilhelmsen Ships Service expects the offer to be taken up by other cruise operators."
The new chemicals will be delivered from various stocking locations throughout Wilhelmsen Ships Service's global network. First deliveries will commence in early 2010.
