As of 1st November 2014 Becker Marine Systems has its own office in Houston. Following China, Singapore, South Korea and Norway, the world’s market leader for rudders, energy saving systems and LNG solutions now has a branch office in the USA, in order to better serve the major North American market.
Mike Pevey, the Director of Sales USA at Becker Marine Systems, will be managing the office for the Hamburg-based company. A veteran of the North American marine industry, Pevey brings engineering knowledge and customer focus to the role.
“With numerous shipping companies in North America there is great demand for products from Becker Marine Systems, for the CO2 emissions-reducing Becker Mewis Duct®, for example,” said Pevey. In addition, rudders for newbuildings of all size classes and vessel types as well as manoeuvring systems for river navigation are among the major local market segments.
Also, from Wednesday 3rd December to Friday 5th December 2014, Becker Marine Systems will again be represented at the “International WorkBoat Show”, a specialist trade show for the shipping industry being held in New Orleans, Louisiana. At stand no. 3950 Pevey and his team will be presenting to visitors of the trade fair Becker Marine Systems’ high-performance rudder and manoeuvring systems, including the Twisted Leading Edge Flap Rudder (TLFKSR).
