HES – Shanghai
Herbert Engineering Shanghai Co., Ltd. (HES) was established in Shanghai in 2004 to provide our clients access and support in the rapidly expanding ship building industry in China. It is registered as a wholly owned foreign entity with 100% ownership and control by HEC. This company builds on the strong agent representation HEC has had in China since 1995. The stable and dedicated local staff are naval architects and marine engineers familiar with standards and shipyard practices in the region. Combining HEC experience with the technical skills and capabilities of the HES staff provides international owners, looking to build or repair in China, with knowledgeable in-country support.
HEE – Europe
In July 2008 HEC opened its European subsidiary, Herbert Engineering Europe (UK) Ltd. (HEE), with the aim to better assist our current European customers and further expand our activities in the north and south of Europe. HEE performs marketing, sales and customer support services as well as a range of engineering while also teaming with staff from the other HEC offices. The European fleet includes many technology and innovation leaders and HEC believes that it is vital to have an active presence in this market.
In 2011 Herbert Engineering Corp. (HEC) and class society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) entered into an agreement to form a joint venture company, Herbert-ABS Software Solutions, LLC (Herbert-ABS). Herbert-ABS offers leading edge loading and salvage analysis software packages as well as naval architectural design software tools to the maritime and offshore industries.
Herbert-ABS owns, develops, markets and supports the existing and legacy Herbert software products including its shipboard loading software (CargoMax), salvage response software (HECSALV), and load management software for offshore structures (LMP). Herbert-ABS is able to leverage the resources of ABS as well as HEC’s offices in China and Europe to provide its clients worldwide service and support.
