(Almere The Netherlands, 8th October 2020) YANMAR Europe BV has signed an agreement with the Danish independent service provider VMS Group A/S as a new service agent for commercial marine engines and spare parts. As of today, VMS Group is a registered agent to service YANMAR medium and high commercial marine engines.
Kim Rasmussen, CCO of VMS Group, sees great opportunities and good potential in the wide range of marine engines that YANMAR offers. “Due to our many years of experience in the marine business we know YANMAR as a manufacturer of efficient, strong and reliable engines. This is also what ship owners tell us as feedback on YANMAR engines. Furthermore, we find that the innovative technology behind the YANMAR engines plays an important role in the future, where the demands for efficiency and environmental considerations are only becoming more crucial. The fact that YANMAR has their own SCR IMO III approved equipment, which ensures that the engine complies with the strictest emission requirements, means that the product is adapted to the applicable requirements going forward.”
Eric Tigelaar, Manager Marine Department at YANMAR Europe BV, adds: “We are very happy to have VMS Group on board in our dealer network as an efficient and reliable sales and service partner in Denmark for total marine solutions to customers in all branches of the marine industry, from fishing vessels to the merchant navy, tankers and container ships. Their 20 years of experience and reputation in the market fit perfectly well with the reliability and quality message YANMAR wants to convey. We look forward to a long-lasting and fruitful relationship.”
