Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven will have a stronger presence from now on in one of its most important core markets. Vogler Marine Agencies LLC, which has been one of the most successful international agencies since 1995, will represent all of the yard’s production sectors, not only in the USA but also in Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas, Bermuda and Costa Rica with immediate effect.
Lloyd Werft Managing Director Rüdiger Pallentin agreed on the co-operation with Don Vogler during the recent Cruise Shipping trade fair in Miami. Vogler has worked with his company in Flemington (New Jersey) since 1995. "There is hardly anyone more closely linked to the ship repair business as Don Vogler - a professional with many years of experience," said Pallentin.
In addition, Vogler is the exclusive representative of well-known manufacturers of ship equipment and also works closely with North American shipping companies – a combination which Rüdiger Pallentin hopes will have particularly positive benefits for Lloyd Werft. This concerns not only cruise shipping companies but also those companies operating container ships, vehicle transporters, bulkers and tankers and with which Vogler Marine Agencies LLC enjoys "an outstanding reputation." The new co-operative venture is being complemented by Sam Williams and his office in Houston (Texas), which mainly concerns itself with the offshore sector. This is a sector which Lloyd Werft itself has concentrated on for several years and is keen to expand further.
Vogler Marine Agencies LLC will in future represent Lloyd Werft’s entire production spectrum, not only including ship repair and conversion sectors but also new building and ship completion, sectors in which the yard has won a particularly good international reputation in the past few years. Rüdiger Pallentin said "we have gained a strong, new partner who will noticeably and significantly improve our presence on the North American continent."
