Swedish Consul General Launches Stal-Laval's Ocean-To-Ocean Service
In a ribbon-cutting ceremony held in Long Beach, Calif., on December 2, Mrs. Cecelia Nettelbrandt, Swedish Consul General for the Western U.S., and John A. Albino, vice president of Stal- Laval, Inc., officially opened Stal- Laval's newest facility.
The Pacific Division is the latest of four Stal-Laval operations in the U.S. linking the Atlantic, Gulf Coast, and Pacific ports with a single service responsibility. Other offices and service shops are located in Elmsford, N.Y. (headquarters), and Houma, La., with a district office in Houston, Texas.
The newest facility was developed to service the marine industry in turbines, hydraulic deck cranes, oil separators, and refrigeration equipment. A service shop is operational, and an inventory of spare parts is maintained. Stal-Laval, Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of Stal-Laval Turbin AB, Finspong, Sweden, one of the world's leading manufacturers of marine steam turbines. It is also the U.S. service representative for Hagglund Cranes, Stal Refrigeration, and Alfa-Laval Separators.
