MAN Engines said it is expanding its sales and service network for marine engines with bases in the U.K., Poland, Sweden and Chile. These partnerships will build on existing commercial ties between the service companies and MAN Engines, some of which go back decades.
“MAN Engines is responding to the increasing quality requirements for a global service network,” explained Claus Benzler, Head of Marine MAN Engines. Specifically, MAN Engines’ new representatives are Diesel Power AB (Sweden), PME Power System Group Limited (UK), Poweras (Poland) and Eilers y Cia. Ltda. (Chile).
Some of these companies have already been service partners for many years. As exclusive importers of MAN marine engines, they are now also responsible for activities relating to new engine projects, and will also provide an extensive network and more customer centres via additional service stations in their own countries. This decentralized structure will enable the MAN partners, all of them marine engine specialists, to provide a complete on-the-spot service for engines in yachts and working boats. Customers will benefit from the closer working relationship and a service network with greater coverage, especially at maritime hubs. “Our official MAN representatives are evidence of our worldwide focus on partners who have extensive experience of marine engines in the performance range we offer. Here the strength of MAN Engines underpins our claim to be the best service network,” said Claus Benzler, Head of Marine MAN Engines.
MAN Engines’ service network in South America has also been considerably enlarged: including Eilers in Chile, it now boasts 76 service stations throughout the Americas.
The service partners primarily serve customers from the professional shipping sector, mainly ferries, wind farm supply vessels, commercial and tug boats and ships belonging to port authorities. But shipyards and end-users with MAN Engines’ yacht engines also receive fast and professional support in all matters relating to fitting, start-up, maintenance, spare parts supply, logistics and just-in-sequence delivery.
