KNUD E. HANSEN establishes its permanent presence in Canada
It is with great pleasure to announce that KNUD E. HANSEN now has a permanent presence in Canada. The burgeoning east-coast port of Halifax, Nova Scotia will serve as the home base for Senior Naval Architect & Project Manager, Sam Stark, who has been with the company since 2013, the Company said in its news release.
The new location will allow KNUD E. HANSEN to focus specifically on the growing maritime sector in the Canadian market as well as the increase in demand for ship tonnage in the Arctic region. It will also allow KNUD E. HANSEN to provide local expertise and the availability of technical consulting services on short notice to new and existing Canadian clientele. KNUD E. HANSEN has worked closely over the years with Canadian ship owners and operators including Marine Atlantic Inc., BC Ferries, and the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador, and looks forward to building on these relationships and fostering new ones.
Sam Stark will continue to assist the other offices with engineering project work while taking on the additional role of increasing awareness of KNUD E. HANSEN in Canada and pursuing new design and engineering opportunities for the company.
