In line with MacGregor's strategy, the company wants to strengthen its local presence in Asia and Michel van Roozendaal, President, MacGregor will relocate from Belgium to Singapore as of 1 October 2017.

In addition finance and sourcing operations will be led from Singapore. Consequently, Jani Oksanen, Vice President, Finance, MacGregor, will as of 1st October be based in Singapore.

With a global customer base and large geographic span of operations, MacGregor says it will continue to have a strong leadership presence in Europe, where most of its competence centres are located.

"As a global market leader in cargo and load handling serving our customers globally, a Head office in Singapore is a natural fit for MacGregor as the majority of shipbuilding takes place in Asia," said Michel van Roozendaal."Furthermore, close to 70% of MacGregor's sourcing volume is purchased from Asian vendors."

The new head office will be established in the company's existing premises in Singapore, where MacGregor shares an office with its sister companies Hiab and Kalmar.
