PrimeServ Begins Scandinavian Expansion

MAN Diesel PrimeServ has opened a new service centre in Gothenburg.

The centre, in Sweden’s second city, had its official opening recently with a well-attended ceremony and will service the full spectrum of MAN Diesel marine engines – both two- and four-stroke. It has already secured a significant number of service contracts in what has been a good start to business.

The new premises consist of office space adjacent to a 1,200-m2 workshop that includes an 8-ton crane to cater for heavy loads. PrimeServ Gothenburg occupies a prime location by Älvsborgsbron, Gothenburg’s landmark suspension bridge. The bridge connects the north and south of the city and lies close to its inner and outer harbours, which combine to form the largest seaport in Scandinavia.

MAN Diesel has had a presence in Gothenburg since 1953 and the new service centre is a continuation of this long tradition. Ulf Backström, Managing Director of PrimeServ Gothenburg, said: “We’re excited about developments in Gothenburg and I’m confident that this will stand MAN Diesel PrimeServ in good stead.” He added that the Gothenburg expansion is not yet complete and that plans to employ more staff are already in the pipeline.
