SFT US Office moves to larger office space

The ShibataFenderTeam US office, located in the Washington, DC area, has moved to a larger office in July 2020 with about double the size in office space to cater for the increased business over the past years.

Back in 2009, the office was opened as the second new SFT office after the company’s start in 2006. It has been developed by Mr. Dominique Polte who is still the President in SFT Inc. and Board Member in SFT AG. The US office grew substantially over the past 11 years, to a leading entity within the SFT Group and the markets in the Americas, with an experienced team of fender expert and excellent local market knowledge.

The team is responsible for Canada, US,  Caribbean, and Latin America and successfully delivered more than 1,000 projects in the Americas.
