Humphree USA, LLC
Humphree, the world’s leading manufacturer of interceptor trim tab systems, is pleased to announce the opening of Humphree USA, LLC located in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Due to the increasing demand for Humphree interceptor trim systems as well as encouraging signs of a Marine Industry recovery in the United States and Canada, the Company is now opening an office in the United States to better serve the North American market.
“During the recent economic downturn Humphree has continued to invest heavily in product development and we are now poised to launch a number of new, advanced, products for trim, stabilization and motion control. Establishing a permanent US presence has been an integrated part of our Product Development strategy says Per Landegren, Managing Director of Humphree.”
Humphree has appointed Kent Lundgren as the President of the new Company.
Kent is a 30-year Marine Industry veteran with solid experience and long involvement with both pleasure crafts and commercial vessels. “We are very pleased to have Kent join us. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in the marine industry. With Kent on our team we have the opportunity to expand our presence in North America and develop closer relationships with our customer base” says Landegren.
Humphree’s North American customer base already includes customers like Gladding Hearn Shipbuilding, CDI Marine, SAFE Boats International, Kvichak Marine, AF Theriault & Son, Sabre Yachts, Burger Boat Company, Spencer Yachts, Nordhavn and Coastal Craft.
