MacGregor, part of Cargotec, have officially opened their head office in Singapore, ending a period of more than three years of having operated with a virtual head office.

“Cargotec aims to be a leader in intelligent cargo handling, serving logistics industries with its three business areas. The maritime industry landscape has changed and we have seen consolidations, increasing benefits of digitization and strong changes in the market environment,” says Mika Vehviläinen, CEO, Cargotec. “For MacGregor this is an exciting and important opportunity. The future growth of the shipping and consumer logistics is happening more and more in Asia. Therefore, it is very important to be close to the leading market and we are proud to have the home for MacGregor head office in Singapore. There are many good reasons for the decision, but the main driver is innovation and being close to the source and capabilities Singapore can offer in that respect.”

“Although MacGregor roots go back to 1751 in Norway with the Pusnes brand, this year marks the 80th anniversary for the MacGregor brand. This serves to remind us how far we have come as a company. We have moved forward from our Nordic roots to Asia, close to our many Asian customers and new innovation opportunities,” says Michel van Roozendaal, President, MacGregor. “We continue to serve our customers globally with our extensive presence in more than 30 countries. Singapore is a good location being in the crossroads of Europe and Asia and offers us a stable home in our journey forward”.
