ESVAGT opens office in Copenhagen

The new ESVAGT office is in the same building as the Danish Shipowner’s Association

Recruitment and international ownership lie behind the decision to establish an ESVAGT office in Copenhagen.

ESVAGT has chosen to establish an office in Copenhagen with a handful of workstations. The office is in the same building as the Danish Shipowner’s Association, Danmarks Rederiforening, on Amaliegade in Copenhagen.

“Background for this decision is a combination of recruitment considerations and the international circle of owners,” says Søren Nørgaard Thomsen:

“We have grown considerably over recent years and have changed ownership. Where previously we could draw on services and competences from our owners in the A. P. Møller Maersk group, we now need to have more of these competences in house. It has become clear that while we can find the right match for a job, it can sometimes be difficult to recruit the right person for our headquarters in Esbjerg,” says Søren Nørgaard Thomsen.

“An office in Copenhagen will make it easier for our international owners to access the company and the office will be a natural base for meetings with our partners and customers in the Danish capital,” says Søren Nørgaard Thomsen.

Address in Copenhagen:

Amaliegade 33, Entrance B, Ground Floor
DK-1256 Copenhagen K
