Palfinger Marine partnering with HP Dutch Harbor to service important Alaska fishing port

Palfinger Marine is further extending its presence in the North American market, partnering with Tim Tilleman and Ed Ramberg, the owners of HP Dutch Harbor, to service Dutch Harbor-Unalaska, Alaska, the remote but strategically very important port of call for the huge North Pacific fishing fleet. In the future Palfinger Marine and HP Dutch Harbor will respond to this target group locally and in the best way possible by supplying them with Palfinger marine cranes.

As a specialist for fast and competent service, with its main service center on Unalaska, HP Dutch Harbor is the ideal partner for Palfinger Marine, the company says. What’s more, Palfinger Marine says, the company has many years of experience in the hydraulic marine products sector,

“In HP Dutch Harbor we’ve found an agent that will boost our progress in the North American market,” says Karl Oberreiter, head of Palfinger Marine, in a company press release. “We are very pleased indeed that HP Dutch Harbor will be supporting us in the future and we would like to welcome all its employees very warmly to our network.”

“We are very pleased that in the future we will be part of Palfinger Marine because our customers will benefit greatly from this working relationship,” added Tilleman, president of HP Dutch Harbor. “In the future, Palfinger’s extensive product range and our knowledge of local customer needs will ensure optimum customer service in Alaska.”

Seattle, an equally important support point for the North Pacific fishing fleet, will continue to be looked after directly by Palfinger Marine’s U.S. regional sales manager John Adams. In cooperation with HP Dutch Harbor, the company says, this will ensure a nationwide supply of Palfinger Marine products for the fishing fleet.

Palfinger Marine will also be present locally as an exhibitor at the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle Nov. 27-29, booth no. 114. It will also be at other important American marine industry trade shows, including the International WorkBoat Show, Dec. 5 to 7 in New Orleans at booth no. 2117.
