Wilhelmsen Ships Service at IMPA 2011
Attendance at marine purchasing and supply event gives customers a chance to ‘Meet the Experts'
Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) will attend and exhibit at next month's IMPA event in London, UK. IMPA, one of the industry's fastest-growing events for marine purchasers which will be held in Kensington, central London, from 14 - 16 September.
Over the past few years, the IMPA event has expanded considerably and this year incorporates an exhibition across three halls and an industry conference. It is set to be attended by a number of major players within the marine products industry from over 30 countries and has been designed to facilitate valuable networking for marine professionals.
Lead by its UK-based team, Wilhelmsen Ships Service will attend the event, where visitors will be given the chance to ‘meet the experts' and talk directly to senior executives from the global organisation including Andrew Sheriff, Business Director, Regulatory Products and Services, covering a range of services and products in lifesaving, fire fighting, safety and refrigerants and also to Graham Hunter, Business Director Marine Chemicals.
Andy Millar, General Manager UK said; "Over the past few months WSS has seen a number of exciting changes, particularly with the recent integration of the Nalfleet marine chemicals business which will enable us to offer the market an even stronger chemicals solution, supported by the worldwide reputation of Wilhelmsen Ships Service."
"There are a number of changes taking place within the maritime industry now, and over the next few years and it's important that we listen to our customers to find out what's important to them - be that regulation, technology or environmental responsibility. Events such as IMPA allow us to talk to our customers face to face and also enable us to tell people about the initiatives that we're working on."
WSS will hold a daily ‘Meet the Experts' forum throughout IMPA, enabling visitors to take the opportunity to find out in more detail about the entire WSS offering and talk to WSS' team of industry specialists.
