Norden opens in Vancouver

Danish owner Norden is expanding its reach with the opening of a new office in Vancouver, Canada.

Norden says it has seen increased activity in the North American market, in particular in the dry sector, and the new office will help its future growth.

Christian Vinther Christensen, head of Norden’s Dry Operator, commented: “Our office will consist of both operational and commercial expertise to add immediate value to our business partners, some of whom we already do multi-year business with. The office will also strengthen the growing Americas/Asia business and nicely link our 3 offices in Asia with our now 4 offices in the Americas – we utilise our scale combined with proximity to our clients to add, capture and deliver value.”

The new office will open in January, and will be headed up by Mark LaFrankie.
