Alaska entry for Palfinger Marine

By Sarah Ann McCay11 November 2012

Austria-based crane manufacturer Palfinger is extending its Palfinger Marine presence in the North American market with the appointment of HP Dutch Harbour as its authorised marine crane dealer in Alaska, focusing on the North Pacific fishing fleet.

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

To further boost its presence in the North American market, Palfinger Marine will also once again exhibit at the Pacific Marine Expo, in Seattle 27 to 29 November. The company will also be exhibiting at the International WorkBoat Show that runs from 5 to 7 December in New Orleans.
