This follows shortly after the opening in December of an engineering and sales office in the Netherlands. NSSLGlobal continues to expand, despite the short term global economic downturn affecting much of the industry caused by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
NSSLGlobal has appointed Kristian Ryberg as general manager to spearhead this new office and to consolidate NSSLGlobal‘s presence. Kristian is well known in the maritime industry, with a solid pedigree providing sophisticated IT and communications solutions.
“I look forward to building up our Swedish office presence and further enhancing the NSSLGlobal offering to the Scandinavian market!” said Kristian Ryberg, general manager, NSSLGlobal Sweden.
The office is on the island of Hönö and is part of the Öckerö Community, less than an hour’s drive from the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. The office is in close proximity to an established and highly reputable shipyard with a 100+ year heritage. The facilities are ideal to enable NSSLGlobal to support its customers with new vessel builds, repair/services and marine electronics, covering GMDSS, radar and communications. The island is ideally situated for customers who can access the office by boat as the harbour outside can accommodate vessels up to 30-40 metres. The area is a hotbed for shipping as the majority of maritime companies are based in Western Sweden and the largest container harbour in the Nordic counties is nearby and sees thousands of vessels annually.
Nikolaj Hvegholm, CEO Scandinavia, NSSLGlobal, commented: “During the pandemic it has proven vital to be able to support our customers locally and this new office in Sweden, in combination with our offices in Denmark and Norway will help us strengthen our business across Scandinavia. I am delighted that Kristian is joining the NSSLGlobal family, he has the expertise, experience and customer focused relationships to help us support our governmental and maritime Scandinavian customers, such as the Swedish Coast Guard.
