Humphree names Kent Lundgren president of company’s new U.S. office

Sweden-based interceptor trim tab systems manufacturer Humphree has named Kent Lundgren as president of its newly opened Humphree USA, LLC office in Virginia Beach, Va.

The company says increasing demand for Humphree interceptor trim systems as well as encouraging signs of a marine industry recovery in the United States and Canada, led it to open the U.S. office to better serve the North American market.

“During the recent economic downturn Humphree has continued to invest heavily in product development and we are now poised to launch a number of new, advanced, products for trim, stabilization and motion control,” says Per Landegren, Humphree’s managing director, in a company press release. “Establishing a permanent U.S. presence has been an integrated part of our product development strategy.”

Humphree has appointed Kent Lundgren as the new company’s president. Lundgren is a 30-year marine industry veteran with solid experience and long involvement with both pleasure crafts and commercial vessels, Humphree says.

“We are very pleased to have Kent join us. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in the marine industry. With Kent on our team we have the opportunity to expand our presence in North America and develop closer relationships with our customer base,” Landegren says.

Humphree says its North American customer base already includes customers like Gladding Hearn Shipbuilding, CDI Marine, SAFE Boats International, Kvichak Marine, AF Theriault & Son, Sabre Yachts, Burger Boat Co., Spencer Yachts, Nordhavn and Coastal Craft.
