PEMA membership hits 44

The “Port Equipment Manufacturers Association” (PEMA) continues to grow its presence in the global ports industry with the addition of three new members - Cascade Corporation, Hans Kuenz and Vahle - taking the Association’s membership to 44.

“We look forward to working together on important issues facing the industry today, such as safety, sustainability, technological development and improved operational efficiency,” explains PEMA President, Ottonel Popesco.

“Port Equipment Manufacturers Association” provides a forum for the global port equipment and technology sectors, reflecting their critical role in enabling safe, secure, sustainable and productive ports and thereby supporting world maritime trade.

In the past two years, the Association has substantially expanded its membership and the scope of its activities.
