Lithuania: Cargotec Opens New Marine Service Company MacGregor BLRT Baltic UAB in Klaipeda

Cargotec opens a new marine service company: MacGregor BLRT Baltic UAB in Klaipeda, Lithuania. The company is a joint venture owned by Cargotec (51%) and Western Shipyard (49%), located in Klaipeda.

“This joint venture with the major shipyard owner in Baltic, Western Shipyard – is a natural continuation for Cargotec’s Marine Service development in the Baltic Countries where Cargotec has a good market share with MacGregor products and services,” says Kimmo Huhtala, Branch & Sales Manager in Cargotec’s Marine Service.

“In Baltic, cargo access equipment repairs and annual maintenance are mainly carried out during dry docking repairs at the yards rather than having the repairs done in ports between the voyages due to ships’ tight time schedules. With this new joint venture we can serve our dry docking customers now more efficiently both in Estonia and Lithuania,” Mr Huhtala continues.

Additionally Cargotec’s customers benefit from expanded services in terms of long term cooperation and partnership agreements with Baltic’s major ship-repair yards. Cargotec’s local offices take care of practically all cargo access equipment repairs on both ship repair yards; Western Shipyard in Klaipeda and Tallinn Shipyard.

Cargotec’s Baltic joint venture companies operate mostly in the Baltic Countries Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, but their services are also available for the whole Baltic Sea region.
