Bahrain’s Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard (ASRY) has signed a representation agreement with AMS to exclusively market ASRY’s products, services and facilities to the Singapore and Hong Kong shipping markets. The move reflects ASRY’s new management’s strategic aim of revising its international agency network, following the takeover by the National Oil and Gas Authority of Bahrain’s shares in the company last year.
According to Ahmed Aljanaid, ASRY Commercial and Business Development General Manager, “We are upgrading our agent network to remind our key markets, historically and going forward, of ASRY’s leading position in the regional shipyard scene. Singapore has over the years been a strong supporter of ASRY’s and we are optimistic that partnering with AMS will see the support continue and flourish in the coming years.”
Clayton Yu, Managing Director of AMS, said he was delighted to have the opportunity to work with ASRY, which has a long standing presence in the Arabian Gulf ship repair market. He added, “ASRY is an internationally recognised leader in ship and marine assets repair and maintenance and we look forward to a successful collaboration between our two companies.”
AMS has been providing expertise in drydocking, repairs, supply and port agency solutions for 20 years. With a network of four offices in Asia AMS says it will be able to extend ASRY’s connections to customers in the region.
