Waterjet propulsion systems specialist Marine Jet Power (MJP) is further strengthening its worldwide sales and service network with the appointment of Firstbreak, as an official sales and service agent, based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

This expansion of the sales and service network will extend current coverage, allowing MJP to offer a more hands-on and localized customer experience, with unmatched support and quicker response times for new and existing customers.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Firstbreak Ltd will offer MJP customers in-region support, including parts fulfilment and local service for builders and operators in New Zealand and other parts of Southeast Asia.

With a long, successful history in the marine, oil and gas industries Firstbreak Ltd, led by Brent Paulsen, specialize in sales, marketing, manufacturing and supply chain with offices in Christchurch, Auckland, Sydney and Singapore.

Paul Hague, MJP Regional Director of Asia Pacific (APAC), says: “Installing a sales and service agent in New Zealand, in addition to opening an office in Western Australia in early 2019, will further strengthen our service capabilities in the fast-growing APAC market.

“We are extremely pleased for the opportunity to be working with Firstbreak Ltd, and their dedicated sales team. As a company, they are extremely well suited to the needs of MJP as we continue to grow in the APAC region.”

The APAC sales office, opened in early 2019, is strategically located in Perth Henderson, Western Australia in the Henderson Industrial area, offering close proximity to a number of shipyards and fleet operators in the area.
