Herbert-ABS opens Singapore office

Specialist software and service company will strengthen local links to new and existing clients in crucial Asian market

(Alameda, CA) - Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC, a leading name in marine regulatory, load management, salvage and ship design software, has opened an office in Singapore to reinforce service and support for Asia-based shipowners, operators and shipyards. 

The new office will be led by Director and Naval Architect Rob Tagg, who will expand the activities and strategic plans of Herbert Engineering and Herbert-ABS Software, primarily supporting installations and sales of its CargoMax™ and HECSALV™ software products. 

Because Herbert-ABS is a joint venture subsidiary of ABS, the expansion to Singapore is also intended to leverage the strong local presence of ABS in Southeast Asia. The classification society’s relationship with yards building vessels ranging from FPSOs to OSVs and tugs presents a significant opportunity for Herbert-ABS to increase its penetration among owners in this area. 

“Close proximity to shipowners and operators, opportunities for salvage and offshore projects and software sales to other engineering companies, make Singapore the natural choice for the next phase of our expansion”, says Hendrik Bruhns, President of Herbert-ABS Software Solutions LLC. 

Herbert-ABS already counts a leading Asian container line, local salvors, offshore operators, engineering companies and shipyards among its clients, as well as working with local tanker and bulk carrier owners and operators.
