This is a company with a long-standing tradition of technical excellence and a mission statement that is fully in harmony with our own. With this partnership, we hope to provide our existing customers – and those to come - with an improved and even more agile and responsive level of service. This bolsters our presence in southern Africa, and consequently we hope for many exciting new sales opportunities.”

The Sales and Technical support we’ve historically received from Høglund has been outstanding, provided by a team that is always keen to assist and is extremely proud of their products. In order to further extend the support we receive from Høglund in our region, Mackay Marine South Africa has committed to establishing a training programme and a system simulator in our Cape Town office. Together with the remote access capability from Høglund, this system will provide an integrated platform for the continuous improvement of our sales and service efforts in support of the Høglund product range.”
