“We want to be even more close to our customers.”
These words belongs to Kristian Svarrer, co-owner of Mermaid Maritime Vietnam JSC. His colleague and co-founder Jorgen Lundbaek agreed.
“Over the past 11 years, we found that more and more vessel’s calling the port of Hai Phong, the North of Vietnam. We are located in Vung Tau, the South of Vietnam” says Jorgen Lundbaek.
On 11 November 2015 their wish was taken into action, and the Danish-owned shipping company opened a new branch in Hai Phong in Vietnam.
“We decided to open our new office and workshop in North of Vietnam, so we can service the shipping industry and many shipyards better and faster.”
The new branch is therefore an extension of Mermaid Maritime’s head office in Vung Tau, which is located 100 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh. With offices located both in the North and South of Vietnam, it is now easier to reach their clients and overall improve their service.
Both employees of Mermaid Maritime and clients were invited for the opening ceremony of the new branch on 11 November. Here the two Danish co-founders Jorgen Lundbaek and Kristian Svarrer began the celebration and welcomed their guests with style: champagne and confetti. The new office was celebrated with entertaining dragon dancers, delicious food and demonstrations on how to use Mermaid Maritime equipment.
“It was a lovely event, and I believe our clients were very happy about the new branch,” says Kristian Svarrer.
“Both owners and directors plus all our staff are very excited of our new location, and are all looking forward to put the name Mermaid Maritime Vietnam on the map of North Vietnam,” says Jorgen Lundbaek.
Mermaid Maritime Vietnam JSC was established in 2004 in the port Of Vung Tau, and is owned by Danish Kasper & Kristian Svarrer from Lauritzen’s EFTF Esbjerg and owner of Mermaid Hotel, Jorgen Lundbaek. Their main business is to service and supply all types of marine safety equipment for both the Merchant Vessel’s and Off-Shore Installation with Global approvals with highly trained Vietnamese technicians, now totaling 36.
