OceanSaver targets Japanese growth with Kashiwa
Norway, December 1, 2014 (STAT):-OceanSaver, a leading manufacturer of ballast water treatment (BWT) systems for large and medium sized vessels, has selected Kashiwa as its new sales agent in Japan. Kashiwa, which has specialised in manufacturing and supplying marine hazard prevention equipment since 1947, will now aim to build awareness of the OceanSaver brand and technology in the country’s newbuild and retrofit segments.
“Kashiwa is a trusted and respected name in Japanese shipping, with an acknowledged mission of protecting the oceans, and the people and assets that work on them,” states Tor Atle Eiken, OceanSaver Vice President Sales & Marketing.
“We’re already well established in Japan with around 20 contracted BWT systems, but we believe that, with the ratification of the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention on the horizon, a partner of Kashiwa’s stature will help us drive added growth and build our presence in this major shipping nation.”
