MDL opens new European hub

MDL has expanded its European footprint with the opening of a new office, in Paris.

The new location in the French capital further strengthens the company’s ability to provide focused support to clients based in Europe, by delivering personalised solutions with MDL Integrated Project Services.

Heading the new office is El Hadji Gano, who joined the company as Key Account Manager - Europe. El Hadji brings with him over 16 years of experience in winch and lifting solutions, with a proven track record of managing key client relationships and driving business growth in the offshore sector.

El Hadji commented:

“I am thrilled to have joined MDL and I am impressed by the company’s advancements in technology and the development of new solutions for the energy sector. Our management's commitment to continuous improvement is truly inspiring.

“As a Key Account Manager for Europe, I am excited to work with a dynamic and enthusiastic team whose goal is to find cost-effective solutions for our clients.

“I look forward to supporting our existing and new clients, and working together to achieve their project objectives worldwide.

Andrew Blaquiere, Managing Director, said:

“This expansion into one of Europe’s major maritime hubs, combined with our second King’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade this year, underscores our dedication to excellence in supporting clients worldwide in solving their project challenges.

“By establishing a presence in Paris, we enhance our ability to support both traditional and renewable energy markets – the latter reflected in another recent recognition, our Fit for Offshore Renewables status.

“I am particularly pleased that it is headed by a solution-oriented expert, El Hadji, as his deep understanding of the European market will ensure that MDL continues to meet and exceed our clients' expectations.

“I am excited about the opportunities this new chapter brings and look forward to a future of continued success in a diverse energy market.”
