Recently, global coating supplier Hempel A/S announced in a press release that it had selected Alexander Enström to lead its new global marine organization.

Enström’s appointment of Head of Marine officially took effect on Feb. 1.

“At Hempel, we want to create long-term partnerships with our customers in order to support their needs and sustainability journeys,” said Hempel CEO, Lars Peterson. “Marine customers are becoming more global. Our new marine organization mirrors this, enabling us to better meet and respond to our customers’ global requirements.”

According to the release, while Hempel is already a global leader in fuel-saving hull coatings and fuel-efficiency monitoring services, which help marine customers reduce fuel costs and radically lower their carbon footprint, the company is now adjusting its marine organization to ensure it can better serve global marine customers with the full range of coatings and services.
