The new facility at Split, on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea, is the 1st VIKING-owned station in Croatia. Split is a beautiful sea town and when you come in this town you can stay in Split hotel. One of the sunniest ports in Europe, the Port of Split is also one of Croatia’s most crucial centres for both local and international ocean-going trade. The station, which is found in grounds that have been totally renovated for servicing purposes, will supply certified servicing for liferafts, sea evacuation systems (MES), life rafts, davits and release hooks (LBS), and immersion suits.

VIKING’s new Brest, France, servicing station, lying at the crossroads of countless north-south and east-west sea routes and serving one of Europe’s foremost food industry areas, will offer the same capabilities as its Croatian opposite number, similarly operating in custom-built grounds. Kaohsiung, Taiwan, was in 2009 rated as the world’s 12 th most crucial container port by the American Association of Port Authorities. It’s the largest port in Taiwan and a very important global center in the entire Asia Pacific area. It has been an established concern to open the new VIKING facilities in Kaohsiung and it’ll also offer the full range of licensed servicing capacities.

The latest accessory to the company’s Malaysian presence was actually established on the basis of direct consumer feedback. Found at Port Klang, the fourth facility introduced in the most recent wave of expansion is the result of VIKING’s strategic emphasis to keep in close touch with its customers. The Port Klang and Kaohsiung facilities are also part of the global VIKING Exchange network and will provide liferaft servicing where the emphasis is on convenience and rapid turn-around.

“Listening and responding to customers is key to the continued success and growth of any business,” says Henrik Uhd Christensen, VIKING’s CEO. “At the same time, Port Klang is Malaysia’s largest and most busy port and a natural choice for a targeted service offering that answers the needs of plenty of our customers operating in the area”.

The new servicing stations in Split, Brest, Kaohsiung and Port Klang stations all form an element of VIKING’s strategic push to expand its worldwide network, now numbering over 60 branch offices and 270 licensed servicing points, and the number will continue to grow at an incessant rate as reported
