MJP boosts regional presence with Singapore office
Combining traditional Swedish quality with the best minds in hydrodynamics, Marine Jet Power (MJP) has created the fastest yet most fuel-efficient waterjet engines known worldwide. The company's acquisition of military marine jet propulsion expert Ultra Dynamics last year completes its range of waterjet systems, lending MJP a stronger global presence, especially in Asia, which is its biggest market.
"We have built our reputation on three core attributes - high performance, heavy-duty quality and an entrepreneurial spirit for world-class service," says Hans Andersson, executive vice-president for global sales and marketing at MJP.
The company offers the whole range from pod waterjets for amphibians to the 15-megawatt MJP Compact Steering Unit model.
Specialising in aluminium and stainless steel engines that satisfy rigorous government applications such as those of the Swedish and South Korean coast guards, MJP waterjets can run for thousands of hours without fail. These engines are the first in the industry to come with a five-year warranty. Catering to all other vessel types such as ferries and luxury yachts, MJP also fabricates complete control systems.
The company's engineers are equipped to remotely diagnose MJP engines, which are all upgradeable. With a network of more than 30 agents overseas, including India, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the mainland, the company boasts round-the-clock total customer support.
The company enters another milestone in Asia, as it will open an office in Singapore by the end of this year to handle sales, technical support and spare parts supply.
"We are working closely with the market as we build opportunities across the region," Andersson says.
In line with this strategy, MJP welcomes sourcing partners from Asia for components such as machine castings, hydraulic parts and electronics. The company is also open to partnerships with manufacturers that can replicate the distinct quality work that goes into every MJP waterjet engine.
