Opening ceremony

Last week his Excellency Jacques Werner, ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Singapore, officially opened the new offices and warehouse of Hatenboer-Water, IMT and TrustLube. The three companies joined forces as they recognized each other’s company values to offer high end, sustainable solutions to their offshore clientele. The operational bases are situated at the Tradehub 21 building along the Boon Lay Way in Singapore.

The companies were very pleased that the Ambassador was present to do the official opening. In his opening speech he explained the reasons behind this collaborative expansion:

"From the early days of the Netherlands, the Dutch have known that only by working together can we win the fight against the water. It has become our DNA: by working together we create the opportunity for growth and innovation.

"These three companies, all working in the water and maritime sector, now share offices and experience in Singapore. Together they will grow and expand their business in Asia. And like the companies, we grow stronger by working together. Singapore and the Netherlands are strong and dependable economic partners. Decades of collaboration have encompassed industry, education, research, culture and government policy. We have a close and long-standing relationship working together in the maritime and water sector. Our countries have benefited, learned and grown through this relationship. Many of the most distinguished Dutch companies in these fields have already opened offices in Singapore. They have been joined by IMT Far East, Hatenboer-Water Asia and Trustlube.

"IMT, Hatenboer-Water and Trustlube offer integrated solutions, from source to tap points, from drawing board to implementation, both the technology and the tools needed to operate it. Innovation, high quality, and growing through cooperation are the keywords for this company collaboration."

Expert guidance for safe water on board

Clients recognize nowadays the serious dangers of not having safe drinking water on board. Hatenboer-Water is glad to act as a full service partner to avoid costly modifications or shutdowns.
The strategic choice to situate the branch close to the construction locations of many of their end-user clients was inspired by the way in which the organization arranges its service provision.

"At Hatenboer-Water we also concentrate on the ‘aftercare’ of our water treatment systems. In that respect, timely delivery of spares and consumables is crucial," comments Guy Heijnen, managing director of Hatenboer-Water Asia Pte Ltd. "The focus of the new Singapore office is to service clients in the maritime and offshore industry. The range of consumables and spares is therefore attuned to this market."

Not only timely deliveries, but the company also provides expert guidance in the design of the water installation: from the production and disinfection of the water, the piping etc., up to the tap points.
