SAL Heavy Lift is forming a new entity to represent the firm in the Spanish market with its business partner Grupo Davila (Davila Group).
Qualified naval architect Carlos Claramunt Lebrón will lead the operation from Madrid using his 15 years of commercial and technical experience in the maritime industry.
Eduardo Davila, President of Davila Group, said: “I am honored to have SAL as a close business partner and to be able to present SAL Heavy Lift, Spain to the Spanish market. We share the same passion for shipping and both companies represents the best of shipping within our respective fields. I am confident that with the closer ties we are creating between us, we will provide the best possible service to our clients wherever they are in Spain.”
The concept is a new one to both SAL and Davila. It takes the most relevant elements of each company to create a dedicated and client focused service offering in the local market.
Justin Archard, Chief Operating Officer of SAL Heavy Lift, explains; “With Davila Group, we saw the right partner to advance this concept. We have worked with the Davila Group and family for a long time, and the timing and opportunity for this step suited us both. Davila has been a significant part of the Spanish shipping industry for more than 100 years and I have no doubt that we have the best possible partner to help develop the SAL brand in the Spanish market.”
