Wrist Ship Supply, the world's largest handler of supplies for shipping companies and offshore, will stick to its strategy, in few words: Agressive growth, according to Wrist Ship Supply CEO Robert Kledal.

"We're constantly on the lookout. Buying and acquisitions is a top-three target for the company. Asia and offshore are two of the areas we're betting on the most and areas where we feel should have a bigger presence. And in offshore, we're not just looking at the North Sea. We're also following the opportunities in Brazil and Angola," says Robert Kledal to ShippingWatch.
