DESMI strengthens presence in Greece

DESMI has announced that the Company is opening an office in Athens, Greece.

The new office, which is legally a representative office of DESMI Pumping Technology A/S, will be headed by the Company’s new colleague, Kostas Karabinis, as of 1st January 2019. Mr Karabinis has several years of experience from within the marine business, which is a perfect match when bringing DESMI engine room pumps, scrubber solutions, ballast water management systems, automation solutions and much more to the market.

“Greece is a very important market to DESMI and has been so for years, and we see a great potential in serving the increasing and important number of customers in the Greek shipping industry,” said Henrik Sørensen, CEO at DESMI.

“In 2018, the DESMI Group opened offices in both Peru and Canada, and the new representative office in Greece is another strategic move in getting closer to our customers,” said Mr Sørensen.

“Our strong local presence in different regions around the world is reinforced by our relationship with local reputable distributors and agents. They strengthen us, and we strengthen them. For more than a decade, our partner Intra Mare Hellas has been our distributor in Greece and the company will continue to be part of our DESMI family and work closely together with Kostas Karabinis and the future team at DESMI Greece.”

“We have great expectations for the market in Greece, but also in Cyprus and the surrounding countries, and we foresee more colleagues to join us shortly at the office in Greece,” concluded Mr Sørensen.
