OceanSaver adds sales rep in Japan

Ballast water-treatment systems manufacturer OceanSaver is expanding in Japan with new sales agent Kashiwa.

Kashiwa has specialized in manufacturing and supplying marine hazard prevention equipment since 1947 and will work to build awareness of the OceanSaver brand in the country’s new build and retrofit segments.

Norway-based OceanSaver provides systems for large and medium-size vessels.

“Kashiwa is a trusted and respected name in Japanese shipping, with an acknowledged mission of protecting the oceans and the people and assets that work on them,” OceanSaver sales and marketing vice president Tor Atle Eiken said in a statement.

“We’re already well established in Japan, with around 20 contracted BWT systems, but we believe that with the ratification of the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention on the horizon, a partner of Kashiwa’s stature will help us drive added growth and build our presence in this major shipping nation.”
