The MacArtney Group announced having signed a representative agreement with Escort Sp. z.o.o. to function as official MacArtney agent in Poland.
Escort will administer the promotion and sales of MacArtney systems and products on the promising and diverse Polish market for underwater technology.
Escort Sp. z.o.o. was founded in 1990, bringing together experienced people from various professions within the realm of marine electronics. Escort currently employs approximately 25 people, with 20 based at the headquarters in Stettin, and the remaining 5 based in the bustling university city of Gdansk, where they are kept busy supplying and servicing the esteemed Gdansk Institute of Oceanography along with other local research institute clients. Overall, within maritime sectors, major Escort clients encompass shipyards, various fishery segments, yacht owners, oceanographic institutes and defence clients.
Through the provision of access to key underwater technology segments, contacts, local knowledge and strategic locations, the appointment of Escort as a MacArtney representative, marks a significant strengthening of MacArtney’s presence in Poland. In turn, Escort will gain access to the entire portfolio of globally established MacArtney systems and products. Examples of MacArtney systems and products that will be sold through Escort include MacArtney winch and handling solutions, ROTVs and SubConn connectors.
MacArtney Business Development Manager, Anders Andersen sees Escort as a strong and serious partner, especially when it comes to providing complete, high quality solutions for customers within diverse underwater technology markets. “Just like MacArtney, Escort possesses an inherent ability to think in complete solutions and it definitely pays to offer customers a fully integrated, turn-key package, rather than focusing solemnly on item sales”, says Mr. Andersen.
In order to provide full ongoing support and keep up with development and potential challenges, MacArtney is committed to work in close contact with Escort and offer the highest high level of support. Marking the first step of commitment and mutual support between the two companies, MacArtney will support Escort at the upcoming BALTEXPO 2013 show in Gdansk.
