International bunkering firm Monjasa on Tuesday (12 March) said it has started a new office at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam due to the “right time” following 11 years of presence in Singapore.
Chief Representative, Jimmy Nguyen, who has been with Monjasa for five years, will relocate from Singapore to head Monjasa’s new Vietnam office.
“We already service a lot of local and international ship owners in the area, so a new office in Vietnam is the natural next step for us,” said Morten Jacobsen, General Manager at Monjasa’s Singapore office.
“In Vietnam, personal relations are crucial when doing business, and that is exactly how we want to do business.
“It provides us with the opportunity of meeting more customers face-to-face, understand their business and build further on our relations.”
The company notes worldwide bunkering operations at offshore and in port requiring a strong and uncompromising commitment to quality.
“Our opportunities of making a difference for customers and suppliers in this part of the world are promising,” adds Jacobsen.
“In the current market, we see quality management and compliance as a prerequisite to work in bunkering and we bring in an operating model backed by ISO standards and vetting of our suppliers.
“In combination with profound knowledge of the culture, business and language, we are excited to open this new chapter.”
The address of Monjasa’s Vietnam office is as follows:
Monjasa Pte. Ltd. (Vietnam)
Bitexco Financial Tower
2 Hai Trieu Street
District 1, Ho Chi Minh
